Hilltop Hoods have announced their first foray into the world of comics, teaming up with Z2 Comics for a new title, Noctis. Available this October, Noctis sees Pressure, Suffa and DJ Debris navigating a sci-fi world where demonic aliens from another dimension have invaded their home base.
The book was written in partnership between the band themselves alongside comedian and New Yorker comics writer Scott Dooley and The Tokyo 5‘s Andrew Archer, with art by The Tokyo 5‘s Jeff Nice. It’s available for pre-order now in a range of options.
“Getting to work with Z2 on a comic is the realisation of a childhood dream. I grew up reading Deathlok, X-Force, Spawn and a host of others, I never thought I’d be able to play a part in putting a comic together, and Z2 have been so generous with their knowledge, resources and time,” says Hoods MC Suffa.
“I’ve been a fan of Tokyo 5 since its inception, Nice’s artwork is stunning, and Andrew Archer writes like someone who really understands how comic book universes should be constructed. Teaming them up with comedian Scott Dooley, who injected his sense of humour throughout, has resulted in a really exciting comic that everyone’s really proud of.”
