Canadian metal act SPIRITBOX are set to release “Eternal Blue: A Spiritbox Graphic Novel”, this June from Z2 Comics.
The forthcoming graphic novel, built around and within the band’s 2021 hit studio album “Eternal Blue”, uses lyrics from the record to create a haunting visual narrative which features the work of veteran comic writer Jim Krueger (Earth X, Justice) and artist Amilcar Pinna (Poppy’s Inferno, Generation X).
The graphic novel tells the story of Eva, a “brilliant painter on the verge of unbelievable acclaim and success,” says a press release. “But her inability to reconcile her public perception with her true self allows a Spiritbox — a device used to communicate with the dead — to transport her to an ethereal world,” it adds.
SPIRITBOX singer Courtney LaPlante comments: “I am in love with this story and artwork. I cannot wait for you to discover Eva and the world that she has been thrust into. It truly is an extension of my feelings and the state of mind I held while writing our album … and the lyrics that resonate with me still. Although we are very different, I can’t help but let a lot of myself seep into Eva’s personality and experiences. I care about her so much. Jim and Amilcar are brilliant and we are so happy to share this with you after keeping it to ourselves for so long.”
The intriguing sounding graphic novel will be available as both a softcover and hardcover, as well as in special editions that include a replica “Spiritbox device” and other collectable band items.
