In February, IDW & Top Shelf are releasing a hardcover collection of JP Ahonen’s webcomic Belzebubs. Heavy metal + horror + slice of life humor… and there will be a soundtrack album in early 2019.
Official PR follows:
Belzebubs is a “trve kvlt mockumentary” focusing on the everyday challenges of family life: raising kids, running a small business, and making time for worship. Except the kids are named Lilith and Leviathan, the business is a black-metal band, and the worship… isn’t exactly aimed upstairs.
In a few short years, what started out as improvised social-media doodles has now become a wildly successful webcomic with hundreds of thousands of fans. The irresistible cartooning of JP Ahonen (Sing No Evil) combines relatable slice-of-life humor with over-the-top occult antics and references from metal music to Lovecraftian horror, making Belzebubs a devil of a good time.
See what Belzebubs‘ quarter-million frenzied Facebook fans have been raving about! Plus: watch for the official Belzebubs soundtrack album, coming in early 2019 from the world’s largest heavy metal record label, Century Media!
