Inspired by Heavy Metal icons Judas Priest and their best-selling record, Z2 Comics proudly announces Screaming for Vengeance the graphic novel. Teaming with writers Rantz Hoseley (Comic Book Tattoo, the Heroin Diaries) and Neil Kleid (Savor), and artist Christopher Mitten (Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.), the multi-platinum selling Metal Gods bestow upon their generations of fans their first-ever graphic novel! The book is due for release in July of 2022, in time for the bands’ 40th anniversary of the album and the return of the in-person San Diego Comic Con, the largest convention of Comicbook and Fantasy culture in the world.
San Diego Comic-Con bringing together all facets of Geek Culture is once again canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. This spring’s sister event, WonderCon in Anaheim, CA is also canceled. Refund information is available at the link below. SDCC will again host a series of Comic-Con At Home events in November, and WonderCon will have a similar online replacement, but this is a big loss for the community. We’ll bring you more updates on the new events and online happenings as we get them.

“Comic-Con?!? I can’t believe they are gonna let us shred the HOB San Diego!! It will definitely be a night of fury and intensity that the city won’t soon forget. We will be coming off a seven week European run, so Slayer’s guns will be blazing!”
