Evanescence Announce Second Book In Their Graphic Anthology Series

Evanescence have officially announced the second book in their “Echoes From the Void” graphic anthology series. The latest comic, which is titled “The Revolution Of Cassandra,” takes a story written by film director Eric D. Howell and connects it to the band’s song “Use My Voice.”

Here’s a description of the book:

“In ‘The Revolution of Cassandra,’ a liberal, astrology-loving humanitarian is caught in the crossfire of a raging civil war and must save her sister from the firing squad of a brutal dictator. She beseeches help from a gun smuggler and inadvertently starts her own revolution. Cassandra stands up to be a light in the face of a cynical, unforgiving and brutal world, pulling everything she believes into question. Racing through minefields, above the jungle canopy and going head-to-head with an army, Cassandra has the stars and moon on her side — or so she believes.”

Frontwoman Amy Lee said the following:

“A few years back, my friend and video director Eric Howell sent me a screenplay he was writing called ‘The Revolution Of Cassandra’. This time, instead of a film, he wanted to make it into a graphic novel. As I read it, I kept hearing this song I’d been working on, ‘Use My Voice’, over and over in my head, because it felt like the song and Cassandra lived in the same world. The power of love, and truth, and sisterhood, standing up to the broken machine. Hanging on to the belief that humanity is worth fighting for. Eric later directed the ‘Use My Voice’ music video, which was truly a feat to accomplish during the height of the pandemic. Now it’s our turn to shine the light on to ‘The Revolution Of Cassandra’, the piece of art that helped fuel and inspire ‘Use My Voice’. This book in our ‘Echoes From The Void’ series will be completely dedicated to both projects, connecting the song and story just as Eric and I feel they were meant to be.”

Howell continued:

“‘The Revolution Of Cassandra’ is a story about a badass woman standing up for her beliefs in a cynical and hostile world. As one of my early readers, I asked Amy to write the forward for the graphic novel if she connected with it in any way. She had a strong response to the material and immediately sent me the sketch of a song she’d been working on. She really identified with a central idea in the story of ‘being for something, not against everything.’ The song and the story had this thematic echo as if we were each grabbing onto the same muse in the same moment — frankly, it was a bit of magic.”

Llexi Leon, CEO of Incendium, added:

“‘Use My Voice’ is such a powerful anthem, and when Amy explained the connection to Eric’s novel, I knew we had to showcase it as part of the anthology. ‘The Revolution Of Cassandra’ is a beautifully executed and compelling saga, I’m delighted to have the opportunity to offer this exclusive prologue in print for the first time.”
