When I think poetry, I think Five Finger Death Punch and their frontman Ivan Moody. Ivan Moody's Dirty Poetry is the new illustrated poetry book that Moody will be releasing this fall through Z2.
"Out of all the projects I've undertaken, this is something truly out of the ordinary, completely unorthodox, and without 'creative walls.'" says Moody. "It is by far the oddest thing I've ever done (and that's saying something).
He continues "I had no idea how this would turn out but thankfully — between Blake and myself — I'm ecstatic with this first edition of 'Dirty Poetry'. I'm intrigued and excited to share this full dose of my thought-provoking/chaotic and emotionally stimulating artistic vision with all of you.
"Welcome… to my rabbit hole."
The book was written by Moody with watercolor illustrations by Blake Armstrong. The book is 104 pages and will be released in a standard hardcover edition in comic shops and bookstores alike in October 2021
