Tori Amos, one of the most talented real musicians of our generation, has collaborated with some of the biggest comic book artists in the world on the Image Comics release “Comic Book Tattoo”.

“Comic Book Tattoo” is a 480-page, full color anthology that transforms Tori's songs into visual stories and adapts the themes and ideas behind her songs into a lush volume of sequential art.

"I have been surprised, excited and pleasantly shocked by these comics that are extensions of the songs that I have loved and therefore welcome these amazing stories of pictures and words because they are uncompromisingly inspiring," says Amos. "It shows you thought is a powerful formidable essence and can have a breathtaking domino effect."

Editor Hoseley added, "While the connections between comics and music have been long established by generations of creators, Comic Book Tattoo is the pure distillation of how these two art forms inspire and feed off of each other across all the classifications, genres and styles of comic storytelling. Like Tori¹s music, these stories run the gamut of human experience, emotion and imagination brought to life by some of the most compelling and innovative creators in the field of comics."

The 12" x 12" 480-page anthology will be in out on July 23rd.
