Online outlet ‘Consequence of Sound’ brings the news that the origins of the Los Angeles rap giants Cypress Hill will re-tell the origins and history of the group through a graphic novel.
Published by Z2 Comics, the 160-page edition will hit the streets on September 15, 2021. It depicts the early days of the group when Louis “B-Real” Freese and Senen “Sen Dog” Reyes “were just a couple teenage cholos from around the way.”
The stories in the book speak about a “series of chance encounters with both sides of the law changed their paths forever.” Also, classic Cypress Hill characters like Officer O’Malley, Sister Maggie, and others make appearances throughout the book.
Sen Dog told ‘Consequence’ that “watching the 30-plus year origin of Cypress Hill retold through comics panels has been incredible. These artists have created an art time machine of Cypress Hill’s birth. It’s the perfect way to continue celebrating the anniversary of our debut album.”
A number of graphic artists have collaborated on the book’s completion. In addition to standard softcover and hardcover editions, Cypress Hill: Tres Equis is available in a Deluxe Edition and a Super Deluxe Edition, the latter limited to just 500 copies.
