Machine Gun Kelly has partnered with Z2 Comics to release a graphic novel that shares a name with his 2019 album, Hotel Diablo.
The four-piece comic book series was co-written by the “Bloody Valentine” singer alongside Eliot Rahal (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Presents: Madam Satan) and Ryan Cady (Future State: Green Lantern).
Martin Morazzo, Amilcar Pinna, Victor Ibañez and Nelson Blake II and more to be announced handled all of the illustrations in the forthcoming graphic novel series.
“Between Heaven and Hell lies a waystation for the soul — a place where your deeds in life are the keys to your eternity in the afterlife — at the Hotel Diablo. And it’s Lidia Lopez’s first night behind the front desk. Every guest has a story to tell and a lesson to learn,” Hotel Diablo is described on an official synopsis.
In addition to the standard hardcover and softcover comics, Z2 is also offering a collectors edition of graphic novel which is available for preorder now, with the Super Deluxe Edition including an exclusive vinyl reissue of his 2019 album, which inspired the comic.
“This project has me feeling incredibly lucky,” added Rahal. “Colson is an incredibly intense and passionate artist. It’s the kind of energy I respond to. He’s someone who wants to do something special, and as a result we have. Z2’s editorial department has assembled together with an incredible array of artists to work with. Creators whose works I’ve respected for a long time. And last… I get to work with Ryan Cady. Not only is he an incredible writer, but also one of my greatest friends. And really… that’s one of the biggest blessings of this entire process — don’t tell him I said that, though.”
“Horror anthologies are like catnip for me, so when Colson presented the Hotel Diablo concept to us, I couldn’t help but latch on,” Caddy added. ”And a chance to work with Eliot Rahal and a team of all-star artists? The raw intensity of the album, this idea of a vacation to visit the darkest corner of your soul — hell yeah, y’all, sign me up.”
Hotel Diablo, the comic book series, is set to arrive in bookstores in July 2021. Preorder the comic now HERE.
