Poppy Returns to Comics in Z2’s Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno in July 2020

On the heels of the release of her brand-new album I Disagree on Sumerian records, and the launch of a 37 date tour to support it, Poppy announces her sophomore comic book effort, again teaming with writer Ryan Cady to pen Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno.

In Genesis 1, Poppy and writer Ryan Cady tackled themes of influence through a dissection of the relationship of fans and enthusiasts to the art on which they cast their own hope and belief. Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno continues down this path, this time putting Poppy in a story in which there are those who literally seek to control and change her for their own purposes and leading her through the depths of hell itself. Damnation 1 trades science fiction for horror, in another thought-provoking yet satirical look at fame.

Damnation  is fueled by the same spirit as Poppy’s new album, inspired by her quiet rise from incalculable phenomenon (with over half-a-billion views on YouTube) to unassuming paragon of high culture, high fashion, and high art, and will be released in July 2020, in both a standard and limited Z2 exclusive deluxe edition, with both available for preorder now. Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno is written by Poppy and Ryan Cady, and features art by Amilcar Pinna and Zoe Thorogood.
