Black Light DistrictComics and music come to save the world with Black Light District!

The six-issue, groundbreaking online comic book/music anthology by Jesse Blaze Snider and Will Knox is coming to print through Image Comics.

Black Light District features six illustrated stories set to the music of geek culture-inspired Black Light District EP. Art contributions come from stellar talents such as: Chris Burnham (Nameless, Officer Downe), Phil Hester (Mythic, Green Arrow), Jason Pearson (Body Bags, Legion of Superheroes), Andrea Tamme (Adventure Time), David Witt (The Growler Magazine), J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel, Star Trek), Michael Spicer (Mythic, Sons of Anarchy), Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon), and Chris Eliopoulos (Savage Dragon, Pet Avengers).

“This [project] is a love letter to comics. These are the most personal songs I’ve ever written – while they’re superhero metaphors, I think they’ll be personal to everybody, because they’re based in emotions I think everyone has felt.” – Jesse Blaze Snider

In Black Light District, comics and music come together to tell six completely separate stories with one thing in common: everything is at stake.

“Jesse gave us a melody and lyrics for inspiration, then just let us do what we do. It was not only one of my favourite creative experiences, but, in my opinion, my best sequential work produced to date.” – Will Knox

I read, I write, I play videogames, Ghostbusters is my favourite thing in the known universe, but quasars come in at a close second. I've been known to cry at the drop of a hat over happy and sad things alike. I've also been known to fly into a rage if things don't go my way, leading to many a fight in high school and breaking someone's nose on the TTC one time. I'm an anxious introvert but also a loud-mouthed bad influence. Especially on my cat. He learned it from watching me, okay!
