Platinum-Selling Band Unveils June Graphic Novel Debut Inspired By The 2017 Album ‘Last Young Renegade’ With Preorders Available Now
NEW YORK, NY— Z2 Comics continues to roll out news of the best in music-related comics and graphic novels for the coming year with news that platinum-selling Fueled By Ramen band All Time Low will be collaborating on a brand new storyline inspired by their 2017 album, Last Young Renegade, which took home Rock Sound’s ‘Album of the Year’ award upon release!
To celebrate their comics debut, the band will release a vinyl edition of their 2017 album in a brand-new colorway available ONLY with the deluxe graphic novel package, exclusively through the Z2 website, and available for preorder now!
“When we wrote our album ‘Last Young Renegade’ we imagined an entire world separate of our own, almost a “what if” version of All Time Low, both with our musical sound and with the visual narrative we put together around it” says All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth. “Creating ‘Young Renegades’ the graphic novel allows us to tell more stories in the universe we imagined and delve deeper into the mythos and thematic ideas that were at play when we were celebrating that era. ‘Young Renegades’ is another branch, another thread and another look into the LYR continuity through an incredible medium we’ve never collaborated in before. Working with the story-tellers and artists on this project has been an incredible new undertaking and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy it with us.”
Who needs a high school reunion when your favorite band is playing a secret show the same night? That’s what Connor and Becca, two classmates who never crossed paths until their ten-year reunion, decide when they hear about a secret All Time Low show in town. As they follow the clues to the secret location, they begin to realize that larger forces are pushing them together and learn the power of hearing the right song in the right place at the right time
Publisher Josh Frankel says “Young Renegades is a super fun story inspired both by the album and the best comic book mysteries. It’s an authentic love letter to the Warped Tour generation from a creative team made up of fans themselves.”
Writer Tres Dean echoes that statement, saying “As a lifelong Warped Tour kid, All Time Low was a big part of growing up for me. Throughout high school I was at almost every show they played in Virginia and made some memories with my friends there that I cherish to this day. Having the chance to work with them all these years later – and getting to do so through a story that (hopefully!) captures everything their music meant to me and so many other hopeless pop punk romantics back then – has been an incredible experience.”
The All Time Low Presents: Young Renegades graphic novel pairs writer Tres Dean with Heartthrob co-creator Robert Wilson IV, and artist Megan Huang and will be released in a standard softcover edition in comic shops and bookstores alike in June 2021, as well a special deluxe edition available for preorder now only through the Z2 website, which will include a special exclusive new vinyl edition of the band’s 2017 album Last Young Renegade in a strictly limited edition!
