The new graphic novel based on one of the band’s music videos will arrive in May.
Z2 Comics has teamed up with rock band Jimmy Eat World for the upcoming comic Jimmy Eat World: 555, an oversized issue written by Alex Paknadel (Arcadia, Friendo) and Jimmy Eat World vocalist/guitarist Jim Adkins, with art by Koren Shadmi (Bionic).
The project draws inspiration from the video for the song “555,” which is on the band’s 2019 album Surviving.
