Devin Townsend Announces “Ziltoid The Omniscient” Comic Book Series

Devin Townsend has teamed up with Incendium and Opus Comics for a new comic book series based on his 2007 album “Ziltoid The Omniscient.” The first issue will arrive in April and it can be pre-ordered HERE.

Here’s a description of the comic:

“From the mind of Devin Townsend, one of the most colorful and prolific musicians in heavy metal, comes the bizarre and whimsical Ziltoid The Omniscient! Witness the rise of the Ziltoidian tasked with keeping the coffee flowing—or else! Or else what?! Or else space-time collapses! And coffee can be found in only one place in the universe–Earth, of course! 30 pages of the strangest stories!”

Townsend commented:

“I’m thrilled to see the Ziltoid universe continue to take shape with this new comic book series, detailing his origin story and shedding light of the enigma that is Ziltoid The Omniscient. Actualizing ideas with commercial quality while avoiding commercial tropes is the whole idea, so to work with this talented group of individuals to bring these visions to light in a beautiful comic book series way is very exciting. Ziltoid exists! He’s awkward and nerdy, and he may just hold the key to what makes up the universe’s ultimate cup of coffee! Enjoy, there’s much more to come.”

Incendium and Opus Comics founder Llexi Leon added:

“Bringing heavy music mascots into comics is a core part of our DNA and Ziltoid The Omniscient is a perfect fit with its unique tone and wonderfully bizarre universe. Ziltoid’s story is a thrilling sci-fi rock opera, filled with comedy and heart, that will jump off the page and surprise fans and newcomers alike. Devin’s recorded work on the Ziltoid albums is hugely original and wildly entertaining, so it’s a joy to explore his coffee-fueled galaxy further.”
