FIREWIND/OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Gus G. is featured in the third issue of the gothic comic book series Eternal Descent, slated for publication in July 2010. The issue features a storyline inspired by guitar hero Gus G. who helps ETERNAL DESCENT characters Lyr and Sirian race against time to save Apollo and the rest of the band from the dissonant call of the Damned.
The comic book will be available at comic book stores worldwide through Diamond Distribution.
Llexi Leon, creator of the multi-media concept Eternal Descent, recruits ESP artists for cameo appearances in the Eternal Descent comic which is inspired by a host of iconic metal musicians.
The launch issue came out on March 31, 2010, with subsequent issues to be released every 4-6 weeks.
Eternal Descent spotlights GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle in issue 2, and Gus G. of FIREWIND and OZZY OSBOURNE in issue 3. Other bands — including STATIC-X, ATREYU, CHILDREN OF BODOM, and SOULFLY — are slated for cameo appearances in upcoming issues.
"Llexi Leon really caught my attention when I met him at NAMM, and he described his vision of combining actual rock dudes in his comic book series and doing an issue with each one," explains Gus G. "I immediately asked him if we can be in one of his books and that's how the whole thing started. It's incredible! I feel Llexi has done a great job in capturing all of the band members' characters."
