This week sees the release of All Time Low Presents: Young Renegades, the newest graphic novel from writer Z2 Comics. The graphic novel, based mostly on pop-punk band All Time Low’s album Last Young Renegade, is by author Tres Dean, artists Robert Wilson IV and Megan Huang, colorists Meg Casey and Fred C. Stresing, and letterer Andworld Design. Today The Beat can share an unique preview from the e-book, that includes art work by Huang.
Here’s how Z2 describes All Time Low Presents: Young Renegades:
Who wants a highschool reunion when your favourite band is taking part in a secret present the identical night time? That’s what Connor and Becca, two classmates who by no means crossed paths till their ten-year reunion, determine once they hear a couple of secret All Time Low present on the town. As they observe the clues to the key location, they start to understand that bigger forces are pushing them collectively and study the ability of listening to the appropriate track in the appropriate place on the proper time.
At the time of the graphic novel’s announcement, All Time Low lead singer & rhythm guitarist Alex Gaskarth described how growing the e-book allowed the band to increase on the world of the unique Last Young Renegade album:
“When we wrote our album ‘Last Young Renegade’ we imagined an entire world separate of our own, almost a “what if” model of All Time Low, each with our musical sound and with the visible narrative we put collectively round it” says All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth. “Creating ‘Young Renegades’ the graphic novel allows us to tell more stories in the universe we imagined and delve deeper into the mythos and thematic ideas that were at play when we were celebrating that era. ‘Young Renegades’ is another branch, another thread and another look into the LYR continuity through an incredible medium we’ve never collaborated in before. Working with the story-tellers and artists on this project has been an incredible new undertaking and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy it with us.”
