Dance Gavin Dance and Z2 Comics Partner for Robot’s Tale
One week before the tour kicks off leading up to the release of the new album by Sacramento’s Dance Gavin Dance, Z2 Comics announces original graphic novel partnership for Robot’s Tale!
Following up on recent success stories with Poppy, Skillet, and Yungblud, Z2 offers up something new for the Warped Tour crowd with Robot’s Tale: A Dance Gavin Dance Graphic Novel, announced just ahead of the release of their brand-new album Afterburner, out April 24!
Mirroring the band’s deconstructive approach paired with humor, Robot’s Tale brings together the comic book wit of writer Eliot Rahal and artist Ian McGinty, who utilize the band’s animal imagery to tell a story with heady themes of existence, as experienced through the perceptions of its anthropomorphic antagonist, upon the discovery that the universe is merely a simulation in which all living things are trapped.
Robot’s Tale: A Dance Gavin Dance Graphic Novel is created in partnership with the band by Eliot Rahal and Ian McGinty with Z2 Comics. Also included are 30 pages by Poppy: Genesis 1 artist Masa Minoura. The original graphic novel clocks in at just over 100 pages, and will be released in a standard edition ($19.99) in comic shops and bookstores alike in May, as well as a limited deluxe edition ($99.99) directly through the Z2 website. The deluxe edition features an exclusive cover by album artist Matthias Adolfsson, paired with an exclusive colored vinyl edition of the band’s upcoming album, Afterburner, both strictly limited to 1,000 copies only and unavailable anywhere else!
