In 1987, the legendary band Anthrax released their third studio album, Among The Living, which would go on to become a heavy metal and pop culture touchstone. To celebrate the band’s upcoming 40th anniversary, they made a very exciting announcement today — an official graphic novel adaption of Among The Living is coming soon from Z2 Comics.
The graphic novel will give each song on the album its own original story, with an incredible writing team including the likes of Scott Ian, Corey Taylor, Rob Zombie, Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Grant Morrison, Brian Posehn, Jimmy Palmiotti, Brian Azzarello, Rick Remender, Joe Trohman and more. The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero has also designed a new incarnation of Anthrax’s iconic mascot the Not Man.

The illustrative team, meanwhile, is set to include Charlie Benante, J.G. Jones, Eric Powell, Darick Robertson, Scott Koblish, Erik Rodriguez, Maan House, Roland Boschi, Steve Chanks, Dave Johnson and more.
Among The Living is expected to ship between April-May 2021. Pre-orders are available now here, with several different formats and packages (some limited edition!) to choose from.
