After previously posting a teaser, Babymetal have revealed that they will be releasing a new graphic novel called “Apocrypha: The Legend Of Babymetal.” The book is a collaboration between Kobametal, Amuse Group USA, and Z2 Comics, and it is expected to be released in October.
Here’s a description of the book:
“Discover the myth of the worldwide music sensation BABYMETAL. Tasked with defeating the forces of darkness and division, the metal spirits must travel through a variety of eras of time, assuming different forms and identities. What we are seeing is not the BABYMETAL of the present. It’s the original story based on BABYMETAL you’ve never heard before. The long-hidden metal spirit’s apocrypha of the METAL RESISTANCE will emerge.”
On another note, The Hollywood Reporter are also reporting that Amuse Inc. and Warner Bros. have teamed up to develop a cartoon based on the band as well.
