New From Z2 Comics – Beartooth Bring You ‘The Journey Below’!
by Richard Bruton
More new music comics coming from Z2 Comics, with the announcement of a new graphic novel from Ohio’s Beartooth accompanying their new album ‘Below’…The Journey Below.
The Ohio Heavy Metal band Beartooth join with writer Tony Lee and artist Szymon Kudranski For The Journey Below for a prequel to their new album ‘Below’ and the world of Barry, its demon overlord.
The story behind the myths of Beartooth’s album Below is brought to life as Barry awakens corporate drone Lita’s memory of how alive the world once was before the cold forces of the corporate world outlawed rock, reminding her of who she truly was, and who she could be again.
Beartooth will bring their new antihero and mascot Barry to comics this fall in Beartooth: The Journey Below, the official companion to their brand new album, available to pre-order now in both a standard softcover and hardcover formats, as well as slipcase, deluxe and super deluxe editions featuring exclusive prints and vinyl – all from the Z2 Comics website.
