Exodus have teamed up with Incendium to create a new “Tales Of The Damned” comic book series and action figure. Pre-orders are available HERE with the first issue set to ship on Halloween (October 31).
Here’s an official press release:
“LOS ANGELES, CA –In the bone-chilling first issue of Tales Of The Damned, a teenage girl goes missing after becoming obsessed with “The Wavelength,” a mysterious signal coming from an elusive radio station. Her protective older sister’s search leads to an abandoned town, where she not only unravels the mystery of her sister’s disappearance but also of the cursed music behind it…The Tempo of the Damned.
Published under Incendium’s music-focused OPUS imprint, the first issue riffs on the title track of 2004’s Tempo Of The Damned and is crafted by horror masters, writer Ian Edginton (Aliens, Predator, 2000AD) and artist Luis Guaragna (John Carpenter’s Tales For A Halloween Night). Tales Of The Damned #1 features cover artwork by Ryan Christensen that showcases the “Organist.”
“I’m super excited to see this project come to life. Exodus and comics go hand in hand, and to see the ‘Organist’ come to life in book form and as an action figure? Totally awesome! I’m looking forward to reading Tales Of The Damned!” said Exodus guitarist and bandleader Gary Holt.
“Exodus’ Tales Of The Damned is our bloody tribute to the Bay Area legends. We’re all about Myths, Monsters, and Metal here at Incendium, so this unholy alliance has been a blast!” added Llexi Leon, CEO Incendium.
The debut of the comic book series coincides with the release of Exodus’ new album Persona Non Grata, which the legendary thrash metal band recorded themselves from home-built studios with the help of Andy Sneap on mixing and mastering and with Steve Lagudi at the helm of engineering. Their groundbreaking eleventh studio album, Persona Non Grata, will be released by Nuclear Blast Records.
