Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) has announced that he will be releasing a new graphic novel called “The Ghost Of Ohio.” The book will coincide with the release of his new Andy Black album of the same name. The story is an original concept by Biersack and he worked on it with Josh Frankel (Z2 Comics), Sridhar Reddy, and Scott Tuft (Swamp Thing, Severed). The effort is expected to be released in mid-2019 and the Eryck Donovan (Batman) created artwork can be seen below.
“I am so excited to finally be able to share the news about The Ghost of Ohio graphic novel and upcoming solo record of the same name and inspired by the comic book story.
The truth is that I would never have discovered my love of rock music without my passion for comic books and characters like Batman and Spawn, which ultimately lead me to larger than life bands like KISS and The Misfits. To be able to combine my love of the graphic novel medium with a concept record is a dream come true and something I have wanted to do for many years. Working with the Z2 Comics team and alongside Scott Tuft and Eryk Donovan to bring this dream to reality has been an incredible process.
The story takes place in southwestern Ohio and spans across historical eras from the 1800s to modern day. The Ghost of Ohio is a tale of loneliness, redemption and strength and I hope both the album and book capture that tone while giving people some fun entertainment to escape into!”
