Z2 Comics has teamed up with Pantera for a brand new graphic novel based on their iconic 1992 album Vulgar Display Of Power. The novel features renditions adaptations of all eleven of the album’s tracks from Alan Robert (Life Of Agony), Eric Peterson (Testament), Keith Buckley (ex-Every Time I Die), Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), and illustrators Brian Ewing, Erik Rodriguez, Ryan Kelly, Steve Chanks, Kevin Mellon, John Pearson, and Danijel Zezelj.
The cover art of the graphic novel was done by legendary tattoo artist and friend of the band Paul Booth.
"I'm not sure I can even express what a tremendous honor it has been to work on this project for Pantera," Booth says. "The first music tour I ever went out on, Pantera headlined. That was back in '94 with Sepultura and Biohazard. To this day, I still compare every tour I've been on to that one as it really was the most special for me. This project has been an awesome experience and I greatly thank everyone involved!"
Vulgar Display Of Power is available for pre-order here in both softcover and hardcover formats, as well as deluxe, super deluxe, and platinum editions packaged with an exclusive vinyl variant LP of the classic album, gallery ready prints by Danijel Zezelj, Erik Rodriguez, and Alan Robert, signed editions from Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown, plus more available exclusively through Z2’s webstore.
