DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT'S GWAR: ORGASMAGEDDON

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a June launch for GWAR: Orgasmageddon, co-written by GWAR and Matt Miner, with art by Jonathan Brandon Sawyer.

Here's how the book is described:

"From the depths of outer space to the frozen wasteland of Antarctica, punk rock and heavy metal's most shocking band of intergalactic blood-spewing alien monsters has returned to kill everything and respect nothing in the pages of GWAR: Orgasmageddon! Banished to the past by the cold and calculating Mr. Perfect, the heroes of GWAR trample through time like a deranged Bill & Ted on bath salts. Antics ensue as they stomp and smash and shape human history to what we accept as our current reality."

"It's awesome to have a comic coming out! We had some in the 90's, but it's about time we got back into the comic book world," said Matt Maguire, better known in the band lineup as Sawborg Destructo. "When Matt Miner and I first talked, everything clicked and I knew we were going to do a cool project. It was really cool to see all the support from the fans who pledged money to Kickstarter. We knew people wanted to see more GWAR comics, so it was great to reach our goal."

"I always wanted to be the guy to help bring GWAR to modern-day comics," Miner said. "Most people when they get into comics want to do Batman or Spider-Man or write the next great Punisher story, but I really, really wanted to write my favorite scumdogs of the universe... the all-mighty GWAR! Although working on that other stuff would be cool, too. At 16 years old, I fell in love with this band of alien monster rockstars and their tongue-in-cheek style of blood-soaked and irreverent social commentary, so when I started making comics a few years ago, I just felt the calling: I must make GWAR comics!"
