Z2 is proud to announce ILLENIUM: Presents Starfall, a collaboration with the musical mastermind that channels the infectious energy of his five-album career into a new, neon-splashed graphic novel.
In a cold totalitarian society where only the fittest survive, Nick has embraced a new world order of violence and brutality, blindly following his overseers’ wishes no matter how much blood stains his hands. To meet these vicious ends, Nick relies on an addictive Substance—a potent elixir that his malignant overlord rations out to the loyally subservient.
But a mysterious woman named Ash soon challenges his worldview, unlocking a potential of harmony rooted in a winding mythology of phoenixes and fire. To transcend the dystopia he helped create, Nick will have to battle demons of addictions and unearth the secrets of ILLENIUM.
ILLENIUM joins writers Frank Marraffino (Marvel Zombies, Dee Snider: He’s Not Gonna Take It) and artists Pablo Andrés and Luis Expósito Hernández for this gripping new sci-fi venture. Emilio Adrias provides cover art.
“The chance to bring my origin story to life in graphic novel form has always been a dream of mine,” said ILLENIUM. “This will be unlike anything anyone has ever seen from me before.”
“At Z2 we’re constantly looking for partners to tell enthralling stories where music and comics collide, and ILLENIUM is the perfect collaborator,” says Z2 VP of Marketing Steve Ettinger. “Whether through his intoxicating live shows or engrossing albums, ILLENIUM is a master entertainer and we’re overjoyed to explore a new avenue to delight his fans.”
