Ozzy Osbourne will make his comic-con debut at San Diego’s Comic-Con

It’s hard to believe, but Ozzy Osbourne has never appeared at a Comic-Con. That will all change, though, when he arrives at San Diego’s Comic-Con later this month. He’ll be at the event with Todd McFarlane to unveil artwork for a comic book set to arrive with special editions of the metal great’s upcoming album, “Patient Number 9.”

Osbourne will release his 13th solo album, “Patient Number 9,” on Sept. 9. The record will feature guitar playing from Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Mike McCready, and Zakk Wylde, plus bass and drum features from Robert Trujillo, Chris Chaney, Duff McKagan, Chad Smith and the late Taylor Hawkins.

The fanfare comes after a scary period for Osbourne health-wise. He recently had major neck surgery, which his wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, described as something that would “determine the rest of his life.” Thankfully, the surgery went well, and after being released from the hospital, Osbourne said, “I am now home from the hospital recuperating comfortably. I am definitely feeling the love and support from all my fans and send everyone a big thank you for their thoughts, prayers and well wishes during my recovery.”

Osbourne’s appearance with McFarlane at San Diego’s Comic-Con will take place on July 22. In addition, he’ll appear at a signing at the Stern Pinball/Rebellion Republic booth at the same convention. Information on the second appearance is expected to come soon.

In other news, the first single off Osbourne’s upcoming album, the title track, recently debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Hot Hard Rock Songs” chart and also tops the “Hard Rock Digital Song Sales” charts. The song has also made it inside the Billboard Top 25 on the “Hot Rock Songs,” “Hot Rock & Alternative Songs,” “Rock & Alternative Airplay” and “Mainstream Rock Airplay” charts.
