Black Veil Brides and publisher Incendium have teamed up for the October launch of the band's six-issue comic books series called “The Phantom Tomorrow.” That is also the name of Black Veil Brides' upcoming album, which will be released on October 29th.
Blabbermouth.net reports that the story was conceptualized by the band's founder Andy Biersack and it follows the story of Dennis Kane, “a scientist with an intellect matched only by his massive ego. When his hubris causes the world falls apart around him, a dark avenger is born of his agonizing shame.”
Biersack said, “We are so excited to release this series and build on the world that we have developed for Blackbird, 9, Scarlet, and the entire 'Phantom Tomorrow' universe that BVB fans have come to know over the past year via our music videos and other visual mediums. Growing up, I was heavily influenced by the works of Alan Moore, Todd McFarlane, and many other iconic writers and artists in the comics field and to have the chance to create and develop an original character that both pulls from those influences as well as creates new and compelling story arcs is a dream come true. I believe that in Michael Moreci we have found the perfect writer and collaborator and the partnership with Incendium is an ideal match to deliver rock and comics fans a memorable character-driven experience. We believe this book will serve as an excellent companion to our upcoming album and helps us to fully tell the story of 'The Phantom Tomorrow'.”
