Z2 Comics has announced another music-based graphic novel, this time from Machine Gun Kelly. Hotel Diablo marks the musician's first ever comic, tying into his 2019 album of the same name. Written by Machine Gun Kelly, Eliot Rahal, and Ryan Cady, the book is illustrated by Martin Morazzo, Amilcar Pinna, Victor Ibañez, and Nelson Blake II, with more to be announced at a later date.

Between Heaven and Hell lies a waystation for the soul--a place where your deeds in life are the keys to your eternity in the afterlife--at the Hotel Diablo. And it's Lidia Lopez's first night behind the front desk. Every guest has a story to tell and a lesson to learn... 

“Colson (Machine Gun Kelly) is a true comic book fan and brings his lyrical gifts to the printed page with a true sensibility and genuine love of the medium to back it up” says Z2 publisher Josh Frankel. “Not only that, we were able to marry him with a creative team that will help translate the vision of the album into a collection of stories that will universally satisfy his fans and comics readers alike.”
Co-writer Eliot Rahal says “This project has me feeling incredibly lucky. Colson is an incredibly intense and passionate artist. It's the kind of energy I respond to. He's someone who wants to do something special, and as a result we have. Z2's editorial department has assembled together with an incredible array of artists to work with. Creators whose works I've respected for a long time. And last... I get to work with Ryan Cady. Not only is he an incredible writer, but also one of my greatest friends. And really... that's one of the biggest blessings of this entire process (don't tell him I said that though).”
“Horror anthologies are like catnip for me, so when Colson presented the Hotel Diablo concept to us, I couldn't help but latch on” says co-writer Ryan Cady. “And a chance to work with Eliot Rahal and a team of all-star artists? The raw intensity of the album, this idea of a vacation to visit the darkest corner of your soul--hell yeah, y'all, sign me up.”

Machine Gun Kelly's Hotel Diablo clocks in at over 100 pages. It will be available at your local comic shop and bookstore in a standard softcover edition in July 2021. Z2 Comics will also have special deluxe and super deluxe editions available including exclusive vinyl editions of the album available through its website.
