We’ve been eagerly awaiting any and all sneak peeks of YUNGBLUD‘s forthcoming graphic novel ever since its announcement mid-May. The singer announced he’s teaming up with Z2 Comics for The Twisted Tales Of The Ritalin Club, which is set for an October release.

But October is so far away and we’re not the most patient bunch. Luckily, YUNGBLUD knows how impatient we all are. Taking to Instagram, he posted a few teasers of the novel’s characters that have us even more excited for the release.

Check out your first look at these characters, below!

YUNGBLUD’s release is available in standard and deluxe editions, both of which have their own unique cover. The latter is limited to 1000 autographed copies and it includes three exclusive prints.

Both versions of the novel will also be paired with an EP featuring new songs to coincide with the story.


Now, YUNGBLUD is giving fans another look into the world of his graphic novel with a few teaser drawings of the story’s characters.

A post shared by YUNGBLUD (@yungblud) on

YUNGBLUD and Ryan O’Sullivan (FearscapeVoid TripDark Souls) co-created The Twisted Tales Of The Ritalin Club. The duo is delivering an alternate universe where YUNGBLUD leads a Ritalin Club, and it takes place at Blackheart’s Boarding School. The synopsis reads as follows:

“From the messed-up mind of music sensation YUNGBLUD comes the Twisted Tales of The Ritalin Club. All pupils attending Blackheart’s Boarding School must be punctual, masked, and heavily medicated. The displaying of superpowers is strictly forbidden. Any pupils encountering YUNGBLUD or any member of his so-called “Ritalin Club” are to seek a teacher immediately. Failure to comply with any of the above rules will result in execution. DO NOT TRUST YUNGBLUD. DO NOT TRUST THE RITALIN CLUB. THEY MEAN YOU HARM.”
