Z2 Comics

has teamed with the

Grateful Dead

to release a limited-edition graphic novel based on the formation of the American jam band.

Written by Chris Miskiewicz and illustrated by Noah Van Sciver,

“Chris and Noah have captured the Dead's sensibility in their words and images that bring to life on the page the earliest days of the Grateful Dead, from the band's founding in 1965 through to Woodstock,” says David Lemieux, audiovisual archivist and legacy manager, Grateful Dead, in a statement to the

Hollywood Reporter

. “We couldn't be happier to be partnering with such talented artists who have delved so deeply into the Dead's history and origin.”

The Z2 Comics news continues the Grateful Dead brand’s push to uncover

2019 International Licensing Awards
