These Rock Legends have conspired with Z2 Comics to Shed Their Civilian Aliases in a New Graphic Novel from Leah Moore, John K Snyder III and Jose Maria Beroy
Mötley Crüe may be responsible for blazing a path of hard rock and chaos for the past 40 years, netting seven platinum and multi-platinum albums alongside global album sales exceeding 100 million. But this spring, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, and Mick Mars come in from the cold to reveal their greatest accomplishment of all: protecting the world at all costs as covert government agents.
Uniting with Z2 Comics, the premier publisher of music-based graphic novels, “MÖTLEY CRÜE’S THE DIRT: DECLASSIFIED” unearths the classified exploits of these rock pioneers as they navigated an international web of moles, sleepers, spooks, and plants. Building from the New York Time bestselling book and subsequent Netflix movie “The Dirt”, Leah Moore (Morrison Hotel) documents the quartet’s twisting journey with interior art from John K. Snyder III (Suicide Squad, Grendel) and J.M. Beroy (Deadman, Star Trek). Armitano (Batman Eternal) joins with dossier art alongside cover artist Dan Panosian (Canary, Slots).
“Playing arenas overflowing with tens of thousands of fans was just a front for our true mission”Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx explains.
“Mötley Crüe remains the one group whose live show in the ‘80s felt truly dangerous. Now that I know the truth about the band, it’s obvious why”. Z2 Senior Editor Rantz Hoseley says “We’re proud to have gained the trust of these live wires to tell the secrets they’ve been forced to cover up for decades… we guarantee you aren’t ready for the madness and mayhem in this graphic novel”.
MÖTLEY CRÜE’S THE DIRT: DECLASSIFIED will debut exclusively on Z2’s webstore in April 2022.
