Christian rock band Skillet will release a new graphic novel in conjunction with Z2 Comics, “Eden,” this summer

Skillet is gearing up to release a new graphic novel from Z2 Comics. The rocker will unleash “Eden” this summer, which depicts each band member as an animated character.

Frontman John Cooper envisioned the “Eden” story concept and joined forces with Random Shock Studios and Carver artist Chris Hunt to bring his concept to life.

“I am beyond thrilled about Eden. It has always been a dream of mine to create a comic. Comics are still an important part of my life today and I can now share that love with my children with the release of this book. In many ways, this graphic novel is a natural extension of Skillet’s career. It is about perseverance, unlikely heroes, and faith in what you believe. I hope that the fans love it!” Cooper said in a statement.

“We are very excited to join forces with John Cooper and the entire Skillet team to create Eden. This unique story idea and John’s innate love of comics made this a natural partnership for us. We can’t wait to share this with the world. This further cements Z2 Comics’ reputation as the premier home for artists, musicians and their exclusive graphic novel projects,” added Josh Frankel, CEO of Z2 Comics.

“The story of Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel follows the two main characters of John and Korey (based on the real life Coopers). To save their family and town they must uncover the mystery of what lies behind the dreams of a prophecy that threaten to consume them,” states the official “Eden” bio.

“They set out on a quest that will take them through the barren wastelands and gleaming cities of a near-future Tennessee,” the bio continues. “Bandmates Seth Morrison and Jen Ledger are also focal characters in the story about survival, determination and strength of personal beliefs.”

Pre-orders for “Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel” are available here. For more on Skillet, visit the band’s official website at
