Z2 COMICS REVEALS COVER ART AND TRACKLIST FOR UNRELEASED GRATEFUL DEAD LP AS PART OF THE DELUXE ORIGINS PACKAGE

With the recent success of partnerships with Yungblud, Poppy and Skillet, Z2 Comics has solidified their place as the premier creator of music-affiliated graphic novels. In 2019, the publisher entered into their largest partnership to date chronicling the history of the iconic Grateful Dead. Grateful Dead Origins takes an in depth and personal look at the formation of one of the most important American rock bands of all time, exploring the early days of Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Pigpen, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart. The story of the band’s transformation from a bar band performing as the Warlocks to becoming the creators of their own sound and forefathers for the jamband culture is depicted in the original story written by Chris Miskiewicz and illustrated by Noah Van Sciver.

Grateful Dead Origins will be available in a strictly limited collectors deluxe edition to be released on June 19, with a standard edition coming the following week on June 23. The standard softcover edition that will feature an exclusive download of rare selections from the early years of the band. The limited run collector’s deluxe edition will come in a hardcover, oversized, individually-numbered coffee table edition featuring exclusive prints and autographed by the comic creators, along with an exclusive vinyl LP of an unreleased recording from an August 1968 performance at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. The deluxe edition is available for pre-order at www.z2comics.com/shop/grateful-dead. Pre-orders are now available for all configurations of Grateful Dead Origins to arrive in mid-June.



This previously unreleased show includes the first known West Coast live rendition of “St. Stephen,” and the first known performance of its “William Tell Bridge,” which would join “St. Stephen” to “The Eleven.” The show was recorded to 8-track analog tape, and was mastered by Grammy-winning engineer David Glasser at Airshow Mastering in Boulder, CO.

“We can’t wait for everyone to see and hear the amazing Origins package and we hope it will provide some comfort to music and graphic novel fans alike during these challenging times,” says Z2 publisher Josh Frankel. “Our plan was always to time the release to the week of Record Store Day, giving comic shops and booksellers the ultimate music book for their customers. We will still do that, it will just happen in June now. I assure you, as this project has come together, it has turned into something even more special than we could have ever expected and we know comics readers, music archivists, and Dead Heads everywhere will agree that it was worth the wait.”

“We've seen so many photos and videos of the Grateful Dead in the 1980s and beyond, and even quite a bit from the 1970s. The 1960s, though, largely remain a visual mystery in terms of the band, especially the earliest days, 1965 and 1966, but also through to 1969” Grateful Dead audiovisual archivist and legacy manager David Lemieux. “Grateful Dead Origins brings the band's beginnings to life, artistically, verbally, and musically. We've all seen some photos of the band onstage in those early days, and heard plenty of music from 1966 through 1969, but everything else, how they became the Grateful Dead, has been obscured from the history books only through lack of documentation. While Origins isn't a discovery of primary archival documents from this era, it visually, creatively, and tastefully fills in the gaps that the historical record's archive might have missed. We're thrilled to have worked with such a talented team to write and illustrate this early part of the Dead's story.”

“Jerry Garcia was an avid comic book enthusiast so it is incredibly fitting to have the Grateful Dead’s origin story told in graphic novel form,” says Mark Pinkus, President of Rhino Entertainment. “Z2’s passion for the band’s music and mythology make them the perfect partner to bring the story to life. It has been inspiring to watch the novel’s artwork evolve over the last year and I’m excited that Dead Heads now get to have a preview. Just wait until you see the finished product!”

ALL-STAR CREATORS CELEBRATE THE WOMEN OF MARVEL IN NEW SPECIAL

Announced earlier today on the Women of Marvel podcast, a new giant-sized special celebrating Marvel’s heroes will debut in April. WOMEN OF MARVEL #1 will proudly spotlight iconic characters from the X-Men to the Avengers in a collection of tales by an all-female lineup of incredible talent from throughout the entertainment industry.

Kicking things off will be comics legend Louise Simonson with a must-read introduction. Simonson will be followed by some of the hottest rising stars in the graphic novel industry. Nadia Shammas punches the glass ceiling with an action-packed She-Hulk adventure, Elsa Sjunneson grits her way to the front line with a tale about Captain Peggy Carter, Sophie Campbell goes feral with a bone-grinding Marrow story, video game and comics writer Anne Toole gets gritty in the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, and Natasha Alterici of Heathen fame charges sword-first into the Marvel Universe with a revelatory tale about Rogue and Mystique.

“I’ve always loved the Women of Marvel program for the way it opened the door – it said to women everywhere, this fandom is for you. There have always been powerful women in comics – and behind them, writing and drawing and editing and reading them – but spotlighting those characters, creators and fans felt like someone reaching out their hand. So it’s with great gratitude that I curated this special one-shot. The women in this special are powerhouse creators from all over the place; it’s truly a celebration of Marvel Comics and a love letter to the women who paved the way,” Editor Sarah Brunstad said. “These stories are bold, bombastic and big-hearted in the best ways. I can’t wait for people to read them and get a little glimpse of what the future of comics has in store.”

Stay tuned for more news about WOMEN OF MARVEL #1 and pick up this extraordinary issue when it hits stands in April.

Tales of Dunk and Egg HBO

Variety reports that a series adaptation of Tales of Dunk and Egg, a prequel to the events of Game of Thrones, is in early development at HBO.

The one-hour show would be based on the series of fantasy novellas by George R. R. Martin, which follow the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Martin has published three novellas in the Tales of Dunk and Egg series to date: The Hedge Knight in 1998, The Sworn Sword in 2003, and The Mystery Knight in 2010. The three novellas were then collected and published together as A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms in 2015.

'BLACK WIDOW' IS EXPECTED TO BE DELAYED AGAIN

Black Widow was supposed to be released last May, but after being pushed back to November thanks to COVID-19, it suffered yet another delay. Now, it's set to arrive in theaters this May.

However, with January, February, and March now without any major blockbusters, there's already speculation that April and May will be next to empty out. That doesn't bode well for the Marvel Studios movie, but many fans have remained optimistic that a Disney+ "Premier Access" release will be considered.

And it sounds like that's a last resort for Disney.

According to new reports, Black Widow is expected to get the delay treatment should the theater situation not improve. Since it's the first 2020s film from the franchise that propelled the studio to a now fictional-seeming $11 billion global gross in 2019, another delay before a last-ditch Disney+ release is more likely to occur.
