Each of the 13 issues in Ministry: The Devil’s Chord — The Chronicles Of Alien F. Jourgensen will be based on one of the industrial-metal band’s albums, including Psalm 69, The Land of Rape and Honey, and The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste.
“I’ve been wanting to step away from music for a bit, switch gears … then I met Sam and then POOF! Sam turns me into a superhero,” Jourgensen said in a statement. “Ya, I’ll sign up for that!”
Written by Shearon, Ministry: The Devil’s Chord focuses on conspiracy theories, the occult and government corruption as it follows the adventures of Alien F. Jourgensen, a young musician who’s discovered by a record label that attempts to change and control him. But as Alien focuses his attention on his passion, music, he triggers his inherent powers that reveal the true intentions of those who really run the planet.
The comic will incorporate elements from Jourgensen’s own history, and he hopes to include cameos by other real-life heroes.
“I’d love to have people like Trent Reznor, Billy Gibbons and Billy Haynes be characters in the series,” he said.. “I mean, who doesn’t want to be a superhero?”
