Gwar And Z2 Comics Invite You To ‘The Duoverse Of Absurdity’
by Richard Bruton
GWAR return to the world of comics with The Duoversity Of Absurdity – coming from Z2 Comics in summer 2022.
The world’s weirdest shock-metal band returns to the pages of comics in 2022 when the Scumdogs of GWAR bring us GWAR: The Duoverse of Absurdity!
After 2021’s Scumdogs of the Universe album, GWAR now find themselves up against “vomitous incarnations of themselves from a filthy alternate dimension!’ This alt-GWAR have broken through to our world and now these ‘dark mirror incarnations are bent on dominating and subjugating all of humanity to the will of The Master. Now… it is GWAR’s throbbing, messy duty to save us all before it’s too late!”
Sounds just as insane as you’d expect from GWAR.
What a page turner! I read the whole thing in a single dump.
– GWAR Lead Singer – The Berserker Blothar
GWAR: The Duoverse of Absurdity is written by Michael Derks and the Slave Pit’s own Matt Maguire with artists Andy MacDonald and Shane White.
As you’d expect from Z2 Comics releases by now, GWAR: The Duoverse of Absurdity will be released in multiple editions. Standard soft and hardcover graphic novels will be available from comic shops, record stores and book shops. Plus, there’s limited edition versions from Z2 and GWAR’s websites, with prints, vinyl and more. And on top of it all, Z2 is offering a 1 of 1 edition which includes the original ‘Beefcake the Mighty’ helmet, a Schecter custom Balsac guitar, signed by Balsac the Jaws of Death, and an exclusive NFT of original sketch art by Sawborg Destructo.
And it’s all available to preorder through the Z2 website.
And if you don’t know GWAR, well… let’s just say they’re in a world of their own…
“The story of GWAR begins in the deepest reaches of outer space. Long ago, the beings who would become the infamous shock rock band GWAR were part of an elite fighting force, the Scumdogs of the Universe. For eons, they served as thralls to a supreme being known only as the Master. But one by one, each member of the band earned a glaring reputation for being an intergalactic fuck-up. And so, they were banished, sent away on a fool’s errand to conquer an insignificant shit ball floating in a dark corner of the universe; the planet Earth. Once here, GWAR shaped the face of the globe, destroying and rebuilding the natural world, and giving rise to all of human history before settling into their role as the most outrageous rock band in history. Aliens to some, gods and demons to others, GWAR is eternal.”
