Chaos! Ready to Rock with Static-X

One of the world's top industrial metal bands will bring its distinctive sound to the publishing house "Where Darkness Dwells" in Static-X #1, the first in a series of sci-fi thriller one-shots from Chaos! Comics.

Static-X quickly became a major player on the music scene after its 1999 debut, and the 1,000,000+ CD-selling band now boasts a massive, worldwide fan base estimated to be five times larger than that of fellow rockers (and Chaos! Comics stars) Insane Clown Posse. Static-X cuts also appear on the soundtrack albums for the films Queen of the Damned and Resident Evil.

Written by Chaos! founder Brian Pulido and illustrated by David Brewer, Static-X #1 welcomes readers to a techno-doom-laden future controlled by the world-governing body known as The State. But when four cybernetically enhanced, insignificant workers begin having dreams about very different past lives, it could be the result of government-induced memory implants...or the start of a revolution!

"It sounds cliche, but it's a dream come true to be featured in a comic book," said Static-X guitarist Tripp Eisen. "I grew up with comics and still read a few comics to this day. Chaos! Comics was a logical choice, and their stuff is right up our alley. Their imagery fits right into the concept and look for the Static-X comic!"

The book is offered in a Regular Edition (MAY021894, $5.99), with two covers -- an art cover and a photo cover -- that will be evenly distributed, polybagged, with an exclusive Static-X CD featuring a remix of their song “This Is Not” and band interviews. A Collector's Edition (MAY021895, $20.00) that will have an enhanced cardstock cover with foil autographs from the band members, and be limited to 1,500 copies worldwide, is also offered.

Static-X #1 -- which contains no harsh language, overt violence, or sexuality -- is designed for all ages.
