GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle appears alongside his bandmates in the second issue of the gothic comic book series Eternal Descent, slated for publication this fall. The issue features a storyline inspired by GOD FORBID's fourth studio album, "IV: Constitution of Treason", and will be available at comic book stores worldwide, scheduled for release through Diamond Distribution during the fourth quarter of 2009.

Llexi Leon, creator of the multi-media concept Eternal Descent, began approaching ESP artists late last year to create the Eternal Descent comic. The series is inspired by and features cameos from a host of iconic metal musicians. The initial launch issue is slated for late October with the GOD FORBID issue released in November. The bands ATREYU, FIREWIND, and STATIC-X, among others, are also slated for upcoming cameo appearances in subsequent issues.

Coinciding with each guitarist's cameo, interview video footage will also be available on YouTube.

Llexi Leon began making noise in London, England in 2005. His highly intricate guitar style exhibits the many influences corralled to create his intense sound — from classical, flamenco, electronica, and ambient genres to the more prominent genres of rock and metal. All of these genres infused to one, Leon has built a cinematic metal fantasia with his music which has branched out to a comic book series. His main aspirations are bringing stories to life through escapism. He utilizes everyday events and his vivid imagination to drive him to create more avenues for his multimedia enterprise. To prove its tangibility, Leon, who is responsible for the basic concept artwork, storyboards, and character design/creation, has assembled a team of artists including:

* Jason Metcalf: Pencils + inks on Eternal Descent comics and Phantom single artwork. Talented and versatile artist has worked on Image comics titles such as The Darkness and Magdelena
* Javier Tartaglia: Eternal Descent colourist, has provided stunning colouring work for many top Marvel comics titles.
* Reiq: CD cover artwork. Fantasy illustrator and anime artist.
* "Blond The Colorist": Comic book colorist, has provided stunning coloring work for many top titles, such as Ghost Rider, X-Men, City of Heroes, and Witchblade

Leon also began his own production company, Incendium Records, to release his first concept album "Losing Faith" and the EP "The Phantom of the Opera". This fulfilled Leon's dream of having all Eternal Descent media developed with the utmost highest standards under one roof.

Leon will soon begin recording his third CD release with producer Eddie Kramer (JIMI HENDRIX, LED ZEPPELIN, KISS) at the helm.
