Press Release: @ImageComics preview of Black Light District 

Posted by

Jesse Blaze Snider and co-writer/producer Will Knox’s groundbreaking online comic book/music anthology will appear in print for the very first time this October from Image Comics.

BLACK LIGHT DISTRICT features six epic illustrated stories set to the music of geek culture-inspired “Black Light District” EP, with art contributions from these stellar talents: Chris Burnham (NAMELESS, OFFICER DOWNE), Phil Hester (MYTHIC, Green Arrow), Jason Pearson (BODY BAGS, Legion of Superheroes), Andrea Tamme (Adventure Time), David Witt (The Growler Magazine), J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel, Star Trek), Michael Spicer (MYTHIC, Sons of Anarchy), Erik Larsen (SAVAGE DRAGON), and Chris Eliopoulos (SAVAGE DRAGON, Pet Avengers).

“This [project] is a love letter to comics, said Snider. “These are the most personal songs I’ve ever written—while they’re superhero metaphors, I think they’ll be personal to everybody, because they’re based in emotions I think everyone has felt.”

In BLACK LIGHT DISTRICT, comics and music come together to tell six separate stories with one thing in common: everything is at stake.

“Jesse gave us a melody and lyrics for inspiration, then just let us do what we do,” said Woodward. “It was not only one of my favorite creative experiences, but, in my opinion, my best sequential work produced to date.” Hester added: “Working on Madhattan with Jesse, Erik [Larsen], and Chris [Eliopoulos] was a joy.””I can’t think of a time I’ve worked harder or been more filled with the spirit of inspiration than working on this cover,” said Burnham. “I can comfortably look at this piece and know in my heart that Pummel Horse was me at my all time peak.”
