For an artist who has played eight cities in 24 hours and screen printed posters in his own blood, a psychedelic comic seems like only a natural progression for this lover of the absurd. The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne will unveil his comic book, “The Sun Is Sick,” this week at Comic-Con in San Diego where it will be then made available online at flaminglips.com. Check out the band’s description of the 40 page title, along with the cover artwork, after the jump! The Flaming Lips are currently touring the U.S. You can buy concert tickets here and purchase a CD here.
According to a statement from The Flaming Lips, “The Sun Is Sick” “may be a comic book but make no mistake; this is not suitable for children and depending on what sort of person you are, it may not be suitable for some of you non-children either. If you have doubts at this moment then ‘The Sun Is Sick’ is not for you.”
