The Dio Estate and Z2 Comics have teamed up to bring you Dio - Holy Diver, the graphic novel adaptation of the classic album "Holy Diver" and the artwork it inspired.
Behold: the Holy Diver graphic novel – an original storyline inspired by one of heavy metal’s most iconic album covers. Penned by acclaimed horror comics writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), the book will tell the tale behind the events leading to the powerful moment captured on the cover of Dio's debut album—definitively addressing 30 years of fan speculation.
