Z2 Comics and Cheech and Chong Partner for a 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel

Z2 Comics is teaming with the comedy duo known affectionately as Cheech and Chong for Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles! Co-written by the two comedy geniuses themselves, their first graphic novel is guaranteed to earn its place alongside such beloved classics as their 1978 film and album “Up in Smoke.”

Totally broke and out of weed, the world’s most iconic stoners–Cheech and Chong–are in a bad way. That is… until they get a call that changes their lives. Cheech’s old friend, a casino manager in Reno needs an emergency opening act for his rock show. If they can make it, the job is theirs. But what begins as a classic American road trip to score a**, grass and cash quickly morphs into a reefer-fueled toke through time in Cheech & Chong’s Chronicles: A Brief History of Weed. This original graphic novel from Z2 Comics is the “real” history of cannabis seen through the bloodshot eyes of the legendary comedy duo, Cheech & Chong.

Released in time for the celebration of the duo’s 50th anniversary of performing together as Cheech and Chong, looking back through the history of cannabis and their own place in it, Cheech & Chong’s Chronicles: A Brief History of Weed is a fictionalized history documenting marijuana’s “influence” on significant people and events throughout time for a collection of hilariously hazy memories and half-truths as told by the masters themselves in partnership with comedian and comics writer Eliot Rahal and artist Noah Van Sciver, with additional artwork from Bob Fingerman, Rick Veitch, Jim Mahfood, and Jason Gonzalez

Cheech and Chong’s Chronicles: A Brief History of Weed will be released in a soft and hardcover edition in finer comic shops and bookstores alike on April 20, 2021 and is also available to preorder now in these and a gorgeous, oversized slipcase deluxe format wraparound cover art by Bob Fingerman, as well as a matching slipmat, a gorgeous print set featuring work from Rick VeitchJim Mahfood and Jason Gonzalez! A third and hyper-limited platinum edition will also be available in a one-time signed edition with special packaging!
