Yungblud’s Graphic Novel Debut Sells Out, Second Printing Coming Soon
Nov 14, 2019
Less than two weeks after the publication of YUNGBLUD’s debut graphic novel, The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club, Z2 announces a complete sellout of the first print run, with a reprint already on the way!
From the beautifully eccentric mind of music sensation YUNGBLUD comes the Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club! All pupils attending Blackheart's Boarding School must be punctual, masked, and heavily medicated. The displaying of superpowers is strictly forbidden. Any pupils encountering YUNGBLUD or any member of his so-called "Ritalin Club" are to seek a teacher immediately. Failure to comply with any of the above rules will result in execution.
“Working with Yungblud and his team has been a truly special experience” says Z2 publisher Josh Frankel. “Seeing his enthusiasm for his fans and the medium is infectious, I am delighted by this sell out and it truly points to the community Dom has built.”
YUNGBLUD Presents: The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club (AUG192353) is co-written by Ryan Sullivan (Turncoat, Void Trip), and is still available in limited quantities at retail in the standard edition, with the limited deluxe edition available exclusively through Z2. This 9x15 oversized book comes packaged in a gorgeous slipcase with three exclusive prints, with each copy signed by the creative team in a one-time limited edition of 1000 copies. The second printing of the standard edition will be shipping from Diamond Book Distributors on December 5!
YUNGBLUD’s impact over the past few years not only as a musician but as a cultural icon is undeniable. Sticking a middle finger up to senseless oppression the tongue-in-cheek, genre bending British rocker has been a driving force in a worldwide movement that encourages people to be distinctively themselves, and proud of it.
With his electric mix of high-octane live energy and clued up social commentary he’s sold out tours the world over and frequented some of the biggest festival stages on the planet, so it’s no surprise YUNGBLUD is well versed in the art of live performance. Breaking down the barriers between audience and performer he raises an army with one common goal: to bind with unity and inspire hope in a world consumed by unjustified hate. Where do we sign up?
