Spiritbox, the breakout metal band of 2021, is teaming with Z2 Comics to release “Eternal Blue: A Spiritbox Graphic Novel,” inspired by the lyrics of the band’s debut full-length, “Eternal Blue.”
A June 2022 release is expected. Various editions and bundles are available for pre-order here.
“Z2 Comics has made my dreams come true, and together we bring you a story based on my lyrics from our album (no matter how much I may try and guard myself, those lyrics will always be a descriptor of my journey through life thus far),” singer Courtney LaPlante said. “This is different though, it’s not just my lyrics and my story, it’s a collaboration with people I admire very much. Together we created this, and I entrusted my lyrics and my vision to them.”
A graphic novel co-created alongside veteran comic scribe Jim Krueger (“Earth X,” “Justice”) and artist Amilcar Pinna (“Poppy’s Inferno,” “Generation X”). The graphic novel tells the tale of Eva, a brilliant painter on the verge of unbelievable acclaim and success. But her inability to reconcile her public perception with her true self allows a Spiritbox—a device used to communicate with the dead—to transport her to an ethereal world. Here, she finds herself trapped in a realm where false shadows become real and dangerous.
Ushering the cursed device from the pages of “Eternal Blue: A Spiritbox Graphic Novel” to reality, deluxe versions of the book will include a fully functional Spiritbox replica. This machine cycles through the radio frequency spectrum, creating a din of white noise that lost souls harness to communicate from beyond the veil. This limited edition Spiritbox is a precise replica of the mysterious artifact that allows Eva to escape from the shadow world. When activated, the box gives off a blue glow as it emits the noises of the spirit world. From the top of the box, an image of Eva is projected onto the ceiling.
Spiritbox also just started a tour supporting Underoath, along with Bad Omens and Stray from the Path. A number of shows have sold out in advance or have limited tickets remaining.
