Z2 Comics is teaming with heavy metal legend King Diamond for a graphic novel adaptation of Abigail. Dan Watters (Lucifer, House of Whispers) is set to scribe the adaptation with Damien Worm (The October Faction, Bloodborne) handling the art duties.
The graphic novel is said to be a chilling new version of the story of Miriam Natias and Jonathan LaFey and an inheritance far more terrifying than even the haunted mansion in which it’s discovered.
Z2 Comics will offer an exclusive Abigail graphic novel picture disc edition of the album which features the front cover of the graphic novel with the back side showcasing the original Abigail cover and an alternate cover painting by Torbjorn Jorgensen.
“A graphic novel based on one of my stories is a dream come true for me. Working with a company like Z2 and the writer Dan Watters, and the graphic artist Damien Worm, is making this project the highest class one could wish for. Not just our own fans but any fan of the horror genre will enjoy the darkness and creepiness of this project. I simply can’t wait to personally be able to present this to you once we get closer to Halloween. Abigail has risen again.”
With 12 albums released as King Diamond, millions of albums sold worldwide, with over 175,000 of 1987’s Abigail in the US alone. The second album under the King Diamond banner, Abigail is an undisputed classic and considered his true breakout release, setting the stage for over three decades of devoted fandom.
