Blondie are releasing a brand-new graphic novel


Blondie are the latest artists set to team-up for a graphic novel with Z2 Comics.

The novel, titled Blondie: Against the Odds, will document “an imaginative take on an oral history of the band, interspersed with artistic interpretations of 10 songs from their catalogue.” 

Z2 Comics have announced the novel will be out this fall, although a specific date is not yet set, in a statement that invited fans to “immerse yourself in the grit and fiction of New York City as Blondie fights for prominence.”

The comic book was written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, who are the team that helped bring forthcoming movie character Harley Quinn back to prominence with a series of comics back in 2013 for DC.

The novel is available in a range of different editions, from a Deluxe Edition that includes a 12” vinyl all the way to a standard softcover edition. 

Previous the heavy metal band Anthrax had also announced a graphic novel launch with the comic company. 

Whilst the tracks featuring in the novel have not been announced it would certainly be a surprise if it didn’t include the old CBGB favourite ‘X Offender’ that you can watch below.
