Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz to write Fall Out Toyworks for Image
MTV.com reports that Fall Out Boy bassist and songwriter Pete Wentz is working on a comic called Fall Out Toyworks for Image Comics.
Conceived by Wentz and designer Darren Romanelli, the book’s writer is Brett Lewis, with art from Sam Basri and Imaginary Friends Studios. Lewis is known for his Bulletproof Monk and The Winter Men work, and Basri has previously worked on Witchblade.
The plot of the five-issue miniseries is loosely based on the Fall Out Boy song “Tiffany Blews” and will focus on “a mysterious toymaker, a cyborg gal named Tiffany and a kid in a bear suit that looks lifted from the cover of Fall Out Boy’s Folie á Deux,” their latest album released last year. You can check out the cover here. The book comes out Sept. 2.
Fall Out Boy, of course, is named after Radioactive Man’s sidekick on The Simpsons. They will tour with Weezer and a reunited Blink-182 this summer.
