Pieced together from a secret story hidden in six of the band's songs, and certainly confirmed from hints dropped in countless articles and quotes, Book 2 brings you the tale of the formation of THE 69 EYES that you would never find on Wikipedia or in the bio section of any record company s web site. "This is the cult, in the old skool way! I wish The Cramps had the same in the 80's..." commented THE 69 EYES lead singer Jyrki 69.
The story follows the vampire Jyrki as he travels to Los Angeles in the heyday of its raucous death rock scene. The urban witch Christina Death has summoned him from across the globe, even as their intentions are entirely at odds. What follows carries them from L.A. to Paris and then to New Orleans, in a spectacular vampiric odyssey of love, loss, and obsession.
Series co-writer Kurt Amacker stated, "I know the fans have been waiting, and now they can see the next chapter in the history of THE 69 EYES." Publisher Marc Moorash concurs, stating, "This is the Empire Strikes Back of our trilogy and it won't disappoint in setting up the finale!" The series includes storytelling from Kurt Amacker (Dead Souls, Tad Caldwell and the Monster Kid) and Marc Moorash (More To Follow, co-editor Garbanzo Literary Journal). Artists include J.C. Grande, Ulises Roman, and Blake Wilkie.
