Ziltoid The Omniscient

Devin Townsend To Launch ‘Ziltoid The Omniscient’ Comic Book Series In April


Canadian progressive rocker Devin Townsend has teamed up with Opus Comics for an upcoming comic book series that expands upon his 2007 rock opera, ‘Ziltoid The Omniscient‘. Townsend commented:

“I’m thrilled to see the Ziltoid universe continue to take shape with this new comic book series, detailing his origin story and shedding light of the enigma that is Ziltoid The Omniscient. Actualizing ideas with commercial quality while avoiding commercial tropes is the whole idea, so to work with this talented group of individuals to bring these visions to light in a beautiful comic book series way is very exciting. Ziltoid exists! He’s awkward and nerdy, and he may just hold the key to what makes up the universe’s ultimate cup of coffee! Enjoy, there’s much more to come.”

Artist/writer Lars Kenseth (‘New Yorker) and artist Andy Kuhn (‘Firebreather‘, ‘The Flash‘) have been hired on for the project, which is expected to launch with a 1st issue in April. Pre-orders are available here.
