Chicago’s Hardcore Heroes Partner With Famed Comics Writer Shaun Simon This Fall For An Original Story Inspired by Their Newly Released Album
LOS ANGELES, CA— Rise Against follows up on their appearance on the comic book soundtrack to DC Comics’ Dark Nights: Death Metal with a graphic novel of their own: Nowhere Generation, to be released by Z2 Comics this October! The band teams with Shaun Simon (True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, Electric Century) and artists Sally Cantirino, Val Halvorson, Huseyin Ozkan, Soo Lee and more to be announced, inspired by the band’s brand new album of the same name.
The world is a powder keg – a system that favors power, wealth, and status – and we’re well past the tipping point. Nowhere Generation: Presented by Rise Against is more than just a tale of rebellion fueled by the band’s passionate politics and artistic inspiration. This is a glimpse into the lives of the abandoned, a collection of down and out individuals coming together for a revolution; these are the stories of the ones who fight back.
Rise Against will bring the lyrical themes of their ninth studio album to comics this fall in Nowhere Generation: Presented by Rise Against, the official companion to their brand new album, available to preorder now in both standard softcover and hardcover formats, as well as slipcase, deluxe and super deluxe editions featuring exclusive prints and brand new vinyl colorway of the LP!
