The cover features infamous clown-dressed serial killer, John Wayne Gacy in a deceivingly bright bunch of balloons. Gacy will be included as a subject of the first issue. Additional subjects are Detective Popcorn, the Jersey Devil, Bigfoot, Mothman, Aum Shinrikyo, Black Death, and the Rendlesham Forest Incident. These are all topics that have been discussed on the podcast, gaining new life within the pages of this horrific comic that pays homage to horror anthology comics of years past - Tales From the Crypt, The Vault of Horror, Eerie, and Creepy. An additional story will be provided by Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski, alongside the artistic talents of John McCrea. Covers will be illustrated by Eric Powell, Martin Morazzo, and Bob Fingerman.

Podcast host, Henry Zebrowski, says, "We are excited to expand our comic bloodlust with Z2 and The Last Comic On the Left. We get to see many of our more 'colorful' ideas receive the evil MAD Magazine treatment. Z2 works with some of the most talented artists and creators in the comic business and it's a privilege to be in their talented hands."

Josh Frankel, Z2 Comics Publisher, adds:

When I first got turned onto The Last Podcast On the Left a couple years ago, I was immediately hooked. As a lifelong weirdo with an obsession for crime, paranormal, and the occult, I learned to stifle talking about it in mixed company - listening to this podcast about the strange was an instant release valve. To be able to work with the guys to bring their comedic vision to life, as well as to do so in a format that pays homage to some of the greatest publications of all time, is insane to me.

Z2 Comics has created publications through partnerships with infamous artists, including Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Machine Gun Kelly, Blondie, Jason Derulo, and Babymetal, among others. The company has also debuted comics by Sturgill Simpson, Poppy, and Anthrax. It's also known for official biographies, including The Grateful Dead, and graphic novel tie-ins for All Time Low, The Doors, and Ronnie James Dio. This is the company's latest partnership and it will definitely be one of its darkest. The Last Comic Book On the Left will bring its horror to fans in this fun medium in Spring 2022.
