Z2 Comics continues its journey into the music world with a follow up graphic novel with Yungblud. It’s not really surprising given that the debut comic, The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club, sold out within days of its release. The artist announced his return to comics with Weird Times at Quarry Banks University.
Yungblud is joined by co-writer Ryan O’Sullivan and artists Derick Jones and Minomiyabi for the new comic. It picks up after Yungblud has turned eighteen and graduated from Blackheart’s High School. He and his super-powered friends Harmony, Scout, Zombie Joshua, Em, and Encore are now enrolled at Quarry Bank University. The place seems normal enough with all the drugs, sex, and relationship drama, but when a new foe with a familiar face arrives from the Manga Dimension, the Ritalin Club are caught in a trip that may cost them their lives.
I wanted to start writing comics because I wanted to give my fans a genuine, physical world to fall into like I did. [With the book] I wanted to amplify the idea that if you feel like you’re in a place where you don’t feel accepted, then come inside this world because here we love you for exactly who you are and we always will.
Yungblud Presents: The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club Volume 2 – Weird Times at Quarry Banks University is now available for pre-order at the Z2 website. There are multiple editions available including standard and limited deluxe editions. The 9×15 oversized book comes packaged in a slipcase and includes an exclusive vinyl variant of the upcoming album, with each copy signed by Yungblud himself in a one-time limited edition of 1,200.
