HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD Gets Its Own Comic Book, 'Undead Origins'

It's a very small list of bands that can claim they've had their own comic book published and now HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD can add its name to that list. On December 6, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD will partner with Heavy Metal magazine to star in the group's own comic: "Undead Origins".

Written by Paul Allor, the comic follows HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD's members as they discover a deep conspiracy; all across Los Angeles, people are acting unnaturally happy and compliant. People in the counterculture are suddenly fitting into society, finding square jobs and loving them. Is it clones? Robots? Alien replacements? The crew discovers that in reality, it's a system of mental and physical alteration, funded by a powerful tech mogul-turned City Councilman. And what's more, the "victims" aren't victims at all; they're undergoing the process voluntarily. But our guys won't stand for that. They work to destroy the facility, assisted by like-minded people from across the city.

This fifty-six-page comic ties in with the release of HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD's fifth studio album, "V".

The issue will hit retail shops on December 6. However, fans can order it directly from the band's webstore and receive it around the street date of their new album.

"V" will be released on October 27.

HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD just began a North American tour in support of "V" at the Louder Than Life festival. For all U.S. headline shows, BUTCHER BABIES will serve as direct support. European dates will begin on January 24 in Glasgow at the O2 Academy.
