Titan Comics is to be publish an all-new graphic novel starring… er, rock god Jimi Hendrix? Waht now?
Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze is written by author Mellow Brown (American Gods, Blade Runner: Origins) and DJ Benhameen, and illustrated by artist Tom Mandrake (Captain Kronos, The Spectre), and in collaboration with Jimi’s sister, Janie Hendrix.
“This epic adventure sees the iconic Jimi Hendrix as you’ve never seen him before! The story sees 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 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.”
Janie Hendrix, head of the family company, Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., said of this new and approved project:
“Jimi transcended time and space with his music, leaping generations into the future,“ said Janie Hendrix, Jimi’s sister and head of the family company, Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. “There was an otherworldliness about him that was a true fascination for many. It’s thrilling to have a Sci-Fi story told introducing Jimi as a time traveller, freedom fighter, and magical musician. This graphic novel is an amazing depiction of what Jimi’s music, his songs, his art conveyed with futuristic imagination! Fans of Jimi, illustrated storytelling, and science fiction will be enthralled!”
Titan Comics Publishers Vivian Cheung-Landau and Nick Landau added:
“Jimi Hendrix is an icon like no other. We are so thrilled to be working with Janie and the Hendrix estate, alongside our creative team of Mellow Brown, DJ Benhameen, and Tom Mandrake to bring Jimi’s legend to life in a brand-new, exciting graphic novel for both long-time fans, and new, to experience.”
Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze is set for release this November 2023 from Titan Comics.
