Starset unites with Marvel for new graphic novel, “The Prox Transmissions”

Credit: Steve GullickStarset has teamed up with comic book giants Marvel to create The Prox Transmissions, a graphic novel based on the spacesuit-wearing band’s music. You can check out the cover of The Prox Transmissions, as well as a few of its panels, now via Billboard.com.

Co-written by Starset frontman Dustin Bates and Marvel’s Peter David, The Prox Transmissions tells the tale of Dr. Stephen Browning, who finds a dire message from the future. The story relates to The Starset Society which, in Starset’s fictional backstory, is an initiative that created the band.

“I’m incredibly excited to have the opportunity to create this graphic novel with Marvel Comics on behalf of The Starset Society,” Bates says, according to Billboard. “I’ve been a fan of Marvel since I was a little kid wishing I was the Hulk — and little did I know how much I’d end up identifying with Bruce Banner as I grew into adulthood.”

“It’s an honor to be working with such an iconic brand to spread the inception story of the Society via The Prox Transmission.”

The Prox Transmission is due out in September. In the meantime, you can catch Starset on tour in support of their latest album, Vessels.

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
