Machine Gun Kelly Partners With Eliot Rahal, Ryan Cady & Others On ‘Hotel Diablo’ OGN

by Brendan M. Allen

Z2 Comics leads off the year with news of a new collaboration, the first graphic novel from rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The young musician brings his genuine love of comics to his first foray into four color fiction with the graphic novel tie-in to his 2019 album Hotel Diablo.

‘Between Heaven and Hell lies a waystation for the soul, a place where your deeds in life are the keys to your eternity in the afterlife at the Hotel Diablo. And it’s Lidia Lopez’s first night behind the front desk. Every guest has a story to tell and a lesson to learn…’

Co-writer Eliot Rahal says 

This project has me feeling incredibly lucky. Colson (Machine Gun Kelly) is an incredibly intense and passionate artist. It’s the kind of energy I respond to. He’s someone who wants to do something special, and as a result we have. And last… I get to work with Ryan Cady. Not only is he an incredible writer, but also one of my greatest friends.

Hotel Diablo clocks in at 120 pages and will be released in a standard softcover edition in comic shops and bookstores in July 2021. There are also ‘special deluxe’ and ‘super deluxe’ editions, which include a vinyl re-issue of the Hotel Diablo album, available exclusively on the Z2 website.
