FIRST LOOK AT JIMI HENDRIX: PURPLE HAZE GRAPHIC NOVEL FROM TITAN COMICS
A ROCK AND ROLL SPACE ODYSSEY FEATURING THE LEGENDARY JIMI HENDRIX!
Titan Comics is thrilled to reveal a first look at Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze graphic novel from critically acclaimed author Mellow Brown (American Gods, Blade Runner: Origins) with DJ BenHaMeen, and illustrated by award-winning artist Tom Mandrake (Captain Kronos, The Spectre), with colors by Justin Prokowich. On sale at bookstores, comic shops and digital devices from July 30, 2024.
Officially licensed by Authentic Hendrix, LLC in collaboration with Jimi’s sister, Janie Hendrix, this psychedelic space odyssey sees Jimi Hendrix embark on a perilous quest to the very center of the universe in search of a magical talisman powerful enough to unlock the incredible latent power of his trademark sound, so that he can free a diverse population starved of rock ‘n’ roll by a tyrannical intergalactic force hellbent on silencing music and enslaving all life.
Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze graphic novel blends classic sci-fi pulp, and Afro-futurism to craft a psychedelic space odyssey that captures the magic, hope and rebellion that Jimi’s legendary music is known for.
“The story rings true to many of Hendrix’s ideas related to UFOs, aliens and other life forms – concepts he used to explore the human condition,” said artist Tom Mandrake.
Jimi Hendrix (November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an influential guitarist, singer and songwriter. Although his career spanned only three studio albums – Are You Experienced (1967), Axis: Bold As Love (1967), and Electric Ladyland (1968) – he is widely recognized as one of the most creative guitarists in the history of music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century.
Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze (128pp, HC, $29.99, 9781787731899) is on sale from July 30, 2024, and features two covers to collect by legendary illustrator artist Tom Mandrake – a stunning wraparound cover and an exclusive cover for comic shops.
