Poppy To Release New Graphic Novel “Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno”

Poppy has announced that she will be releasing a new graphic novel titled “Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno” on July 21. The singer worked on the book with writer Ryan Cady and it will come with an original soundtrack called “Music To Scream To.”

Z2 publisher Josh Frankel commented:

“We are delighted to work with Poppy again on her follow up to last year’s fantastic debut, Genesis 1. We believe this was one of the best books we published not only in 2019, but in our time as a publisher, and “Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno” is shaping up to be all that and more.”

The following description of the book was also shared:

“You might think you know Poppy, but what if you were only just scratching the surface? What if you could learn more about Poppy at the same time that she learns about herself? Following the story of Poppy’s Inferno, In between two worlds, both of which work to traumatize the unsuspecting into traumatizing others, Poppy finds herself in both literal and figurative Hellscapes, She must walk the thin line between doing what she must to gain her freedom and staying true to her own identity and beliefs. In Poppy’s Inferno our hero must fight against all that try to change her, not allowing anyone to determine how she thinks, feels or hurts, all the while trying to outwit the demons that surround her every step of the way.”

Poppy Parts Ways With Her Creative Partner Titanic Sinclair

Poppy has parted ways with her creative partner Titanic Sinclair. She confirmed the news via Twitter, while also opening up about Sinclair’s manipulative behavior.

Poppy said the following:

“To whom it may concern,

I grappled with the thought of making this statement but I decided to do this to set the record straight.

As some of you may know my former creative partner and I have parted ways. This was a long time coming but this is a person whom I defended in the past because I thought he was just misunderstood. The reason I am making this statement is due to the amount of misinformation online about me and my character and I owe it to myself to clear a few things up.

I met this person at a young age and things were seemingly good for a while until echoes from his past were too loud to ignore.

I was never ‘an accomplice’ to this person’s past actions like some believe – I was a person who suffered similar wrong doings as one of his former partners brought to light.

This person glamorizes suicide and has used it many times in the past to manipulate me. And the last time I finally had enough.

As a grab for attention he messaged fans before he tried hanging himself while I was on tour with an item that belonged to me. These are tactics that he used for years. This person lives an illusion that he is a gift to this Earth. He weaved himself into a storyline, wanting the public to believe he was a puppeteer, which is so far from the truth.

In light of recent events brought to my attention he is already quick to jump in and use my former friends as his next experiment repeating manipulative patterns he has for years.

I was trapped in a mess that I needed to dig my way out of – and like I always do, I figured out how to handle it. I encourage those of you who feel trapped in a situation whether it be similar to my previous one or not – to take the first step because that is the most difficult one.

This is not a request for sympathy and I am not a weak victim but this is me setting the record straight.

I am happier than I have ever been and I am excited to move forward.”
