Anthrax has been celebrating turning 40 with an extensive docuseries, but that's not all! The band has now announced an Among The Living graphic novel due out on July 6 featuring stories written by Brian Posehn, Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Gerard and Mikey Way (My Chemical Romance), Rob Zombie, and more!
"I grew up with Marvel and DC, and they were part of my life from the time I was four or five years old," said Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. "My mom worked at Primrose Bakery on Tremont Avenue in New York, and when I'd go to work with her, I'd sit in the back with the bakers. I'd read and draw the superheroes from the comics she would buy for me from this little shop just a couple of doors down. I've loved everything about comic books and the neighborhood comic book stores ever since."
Among The Living will be narrated by Anthrax mascot The Not Man, who has been newly designed by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead). The Not Man narration was written by Jimmy Palmiotti (Harley Quinn, Blondie: Against The Odds) and illustrated by artist Nelson (Aliens).
Each story was written and drawn by the following. Pre-orders are available here.
