The Devil Wears Prada Comic Release

The Devil Wears Prada are planning the release of an interesting new package. Here is the announcement:

"ZOMBIE, The EP Comic," a limited-edition, traditional-sized comic book based on the fictionalized adventures of rising metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada, bundled with the band's upcoming "Zombie EP" (Ferret), will be available at retail exclusively at all Hot Topic stores for $9.99 beginning August 24. The Zombie bundle can also be ordered on the band's website.

The 14-page "ZOMBIE, The EP Comic," was written by JL Bourne who penned "Day by Day Armageddon - A Zombie Novel," considered one of the best zombie novels ever written, and tells the story of five combat soldiers, armed with a hi-tech arsenal, on a perilous, top-secret mission in a harrowing world infected with zombies. "ZOMBIE, The EP Comic," was illustrated by Kevin Mellon, noted for his 2007 book "GEARHEAD" which is currently in development as a major motion picture.

"We thought doing a comic book as a companion to the 'Zombie EP' was a natural and fitting idea," said the band's vocalist/frontman Mike Hranica, whose concept for a zombie-themed disc was rooted in his having read "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Books late last year. "We love that "ZOMBIE, The EP Comic," is not a CD-booklet, but a full-sized, stylized, superhero comic book that stands on its own."

The Devil Wears Prada is currently on its "Back to the Roots Tour," playing some of the biggest venues of their career, and multiple nights as some of the smallest - 25,000 screaming kids one night, and 250 hot and sweaty fans the next. The "Back To The Roots" tour, in partnership with Rockstar Energy Drink, kicked off last month and will go through to the Labor Day weekend. Remaining dates are below.
