Yungblud and Z2 team for a third collaboration, Yungblud Presents Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club 3: The Funeral

Following his incendiary journey into sequential art with The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club and Weird Times at Quarry Bank UniversityYungblud and Z2 Comics return with the third volume in the musician’s ballistic tales of super-powered outcasts rebelling against sinister boarding schools and beyond. Yungblud Presents Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club 3: The Funeral is co-written by Ryan O’Sullivan featuring interior art courtesy Annapaola Martello and Vasilis Lolos, with covers from Martello and Butch Mapa. This graphic novel serves as a cross-media experience alongside Yungblud’s single, “The Funeral,” released in March. 

This new chapter builds off the gleefully irreverent, bitingly profane adventures of Yungblud and his super-powered coterie—the titular Ritalin Club—of Harmony, Scout, Zombie Joshua, Em, and Encore. After breaking free from the repressive constraints of Blackheart’s High School and navigating the horrors of Quarry Bank University, Yungblud will face his greatest foe: mortality. 

Two years after saving the world from the Mangaverse, Yungblud died. No one knows how, only that it was enough to cause The Ritalin Club to disband and stop talking to each other. But as their old foe, The Spreading Darkness, has returned, more powerful than ever, it falls to Zombie Joshua to get the band back together. Everymember. Living or dead.

Z2 Comics and Yungblud present Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club 3: The Funeral in both softcover and deluxe clamshell formats, including a hand-signed edition of the book, four prints, and CD. Annapaola Martello and Butch Mapa provide cover art.
