BABYMETAL have announced that their new graphic novel “Apocrypha: the Legend of Babymetal” will officially be released on October 30. The book will focus on the group’s mysterious mythology.
Here’s a synopsis:
“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.”
More details will be revealed during a Comic Con panel in New York City. A press release said the following about that:
“Until now, the publication of APOCRYPHA: THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL has largely been shrouded in secrecy, but that will begin to change at New York Comic Con. On Thursday, October 4th, GMB Chomichuk will appear at an APOCRYPHA: THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL panel, where he will detail the development and creation of the graphic novel. The panel will be held at the Main Stage of Anime Fest at NYCC from 5:15 PM – 6:15 PM. Z2 Comics will also be selling 3 limited edition APOCRYPHA: THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL posters at Anime Fest booth # 5319 and NYCC booth # 1255.”
