King Diamond and Z2 Comics announce Abigail graphic novel adaptation
Z2 Comics are continuing to launch some absolutely awesome collaborations: they’ve just announced a new graphic novel with King Diamond.
The Danish icon will be co-writing an upcoming graphic novel (for the first time ever) with White Noise Studios writer Dan Watters and October Faction artist Damien Worm – the team working on bringing iconic 1987 album Abigail to life in comic form.
“A graphic novel based on one of my stories is a dream come true for me,” King Diamond enthuses. “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.”

Indeed, the Abigail graphic novel is set for release in October 2021, with standard softcover and hardcover editions in comic shops and bookstores. On top of that, Z2 will be releasing a limited deluxe edition (pre-order here) featuring an exclusive variant cover vinyl edition.
Publisher Josh Frankel states, “King Diamond is as his name would imply: heavy metal royalty, and we are all his servants. I couldn’t be more honoured to reward fans of comics and heavy music with what will most likely be one of the highlights of the year, and a high watermark for Z2’s direct artist collaborations overall.”
