Lacuna Coil have announced today that, after the successful collaboration with DC – most recently with Dark Nights: Death Metal, the band intend to release a whole mini-series of comic books with them in lead roles. Each issue of the mini-series will be based thematically on the style and lyrics of each of Lacuna Coil’s albums.

Singer Cristina has this to say about the series – “We’re really excited about this. We love comics, and the idea of having super-powers is something that everyone dreams of! I can’t wait to see what fans think of this!”

Cristina refused to reveal what powers each of the band member have, but did reveal: “Inspired by the body-paint art from our first album, Issue 1 starts with Andrea and I coming out of a magical pool like fish-spirits that take over mortal bodies…”

The first issue, “In A Reverie“, is due for release in April, with “Unleashed Memories” to follow in May.
