Hollywood Undead and Heavy Metal Magazine have joined forces for a new 56-page comic book called “Undead Origins.” The comic was written by Paul Allor, and it will be available on December 6. Fans that preorder it through the band’s merch store will get it earlier, around the release date of their new album “V” (out October 27).
The press release offered a description of the comic:
“…The comic follows Hollywood Undead‘s members as they discover a deep conspiracy; all across Los Angeles, people are acting unnaturally happy and compliant. People in the counterculture are suddenly fitting into society, finding square jobs and loving them. Is it clones? Robots? Alien replacements? The crew discovers that in reality, it’s a system of mental and physical alteration, funded by a powerful tech mogul-turned City Councilman.
And what’s more, the “victims” aren’t victims at all; they’re undergoing the process voluntarily. But our guys won’t stand for that. They work to destroy the facility, assisted by like-minded people from across the city.”
