Five Finger Death Punch Frontman Makes Literary Debut in Comic Shops Today With Copies Also Available to Order Direct from Z2 Now
LOS ANGELES, CA— Z2 Comics made headlines everywhere earlier in the year with the announcement of this book of original poetry from Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody, landing on shelves today!
It’s no trick; the treat rock fans have been waiting for since June is available at your favorite local comic book store now! Presented in an exquisite hardcover format, Ivan Moody’s Dirty Poetry arrives on shelves today with copies also available now through the Z2 website!
Ivan Moody said “Out of all the projects I’ve undertaken this is something truly out of the ordinary, completely unorthodox, and without ‘creative walls.’ It is by far the oddest thing I’ve ever done (and that’s saying something).
I had no idea how this would turn out but thankfully - between Blake and myself - I’m ecstatic with this first edition of Dirty Poetry. I’m intrigued and excited to share this FULL DOSE of my thought provoking/chaotic and emotionally stimulating artistic vision with all of you.
Welcome... to My rabbit hole.”
Ever wondered what really lies beyond “where the sidewalk ends?” From the wonderfully twisted mind of the front man of Five Finger Death Punch; Ivan Moody’s Dirty Poetry is a book of original poems punctuated with dark art that’s guaranteed to inspire upside-down dreamscapes in the minds of its readers. Written by Ivan Moody himself, with beautifully haunting ink and watercolor illustrations by Blake Armstrong, Z2 Comics offers this Halloween treat to readers everywhere now!
