You know, Poppy is already preparing to have a massive year in 2020 after the release of her new album I, Disagree (our review here) and her stellar Australian debut at Good Things Festival + sideshow last year and now it looks like more new material is on the way from the pop metal maiden with the announcement of pre-orders for her upcoming graphic novel Poppy’s Inferno being announced.
According to the website, the story is based around how Poppy came to be, revealing:
You might think you know Poppy, but what if you were only just scratching the surface? What if you could learn more about Poppy at the same time that she learns about herself? Following the story of Poppy’s Inferno, In between two worlds, both of which work to traumatize the unsuspecting into traumatizing others, Poppy finds herself in both literal and figurative Hellscapes, She must walk the thin line between doing what she must to gain her freedom and staying true to her own identity and beliefs. In Poppy’s Inferno our hero must fight against all that try to change her, not allowing anyone to determine how she thinks, feels or hurts, all the while trying to outwit the demons that surround her every step of the way.
The pre-orders ALSO come with an original soundtrack vinyl for Music to Scream To, a release I can’t find much info on so I’m going to say it coincides with the novel as a “listen and read” duo type thing. I’ll update this post once a pres release lands in my inbox, but if you’re keen, find out more here!
We caught up with Poppy backstage at GTF for our Wall of Sound podcast and have to say, she was quite the enigma. Revisit that chat right here and get keen for the year of Poppy!
