The origin story of BABYMETAL has always been unclear. Only the Fox God knows. But that's all changing.
The mythology of BABYMETAL is about to be released in a graphic novel entitled 'APOCRYPHA: The Legend Of BABYMETAL', and it's set for release October 30.
Details of the graphic novel are a bit thin on the ground as yet, but the creator and illustrator of APOCRYPHA GMB Chomichuk will be presenting a panel about it at New York Comic Con early next month.
The official desription of the graphic novel details “Discover the myth of the worldwide music sensation BABYMETAL. Tasked with defeating the forces of darkness and division, the metal spirits must travel through a variety of eras of time, assuming different forms and identities. What we are seeing is not the BABYMETAL of the present. It's the original story based on BABYMETAL you've never heard before. The long-hidden metal spirit’s apocrypha of the Metal Resistance will emerge.”
