Z2 Comics has announced a new graphic novel that follows the story of Elvis Presley.
Elvis: The Graphic Novel will follow the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s humble beginnings in Memphis as a young artist struggling to find his voice and break into the music industry. From the history-making Sun Studio to television sets across the nation, the trials and tribulations of Elvis Aaron Presley are illustrated in graphic detail by author Chris Miskiewicz (Grateful Dead: Origins, This Is Where We Fall) and Marvel Comics artist Michael Shelfer.
“Elvis is one of the most universally celebrated names in entertainment,” said Z2 publisher, Josh Frankel in a press release. “His name transcends music itself as one of the larger-than-life figures in the history of pop culture. We hope to make this graphic novel an origin story for Elvis fans akin to what Alan Moore’s Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow is for the Son of Krypton.”
Elvis: The Graphic Novel is scheduled to arrive in August 2021.
