Within Temptation have joined forces with Incendium and Opus Comics to create a new comic book series based on their 2019 album “Resist” and their 2021 virtual concert “Aftermath.” The first issue is expected to be released in May and it can be pre-ordered HERE.
Here’s a description of the comic:
“Set in the distant future, an endless battle rages between two species — an advanced but inherently humanoid species ruled by a techno-organic matriarch on one side, and a cruel race of alien artificial intelligences on the other. Multiple stories collide to paint a sweeping portrait of the matriarch’s life and her struggle to balance what she was created to be with the impossible forces that shape her.”
Vocalist Sharon den Adel commented:
“The Purge cover star GENESIS has come to life on our stage and in different merchandise designs, and now she will be taking you on the biggest quest of her life — in both our next album as well as in our comic book series. Teaming up with Opus for this seemed like the logical decision, as they are a heavyweight in creating comic books and only work with the best designers and storytellers. We can’t wait to show you the final result! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!”
Incendium and Opus Comics founder Llexi Leon added:
“The symphonic splendour of Within Temptation has always transported listeners to other worlds, and experiencing those songs supported by the incredible set design of recent stage shows and virtual performances presented a wonderful opportunity to explore their futuristic vision with an all new narrative. Today, the battle against AI is suddenly a very real topic, particularly for artists and other creatives, which is reflected in the story of the matriarch and her struggle.”
