A Sublime graphic novel is in the works with publisher Z2 Comics.

The book, titled Sublime: $5 at the Door, is said to be a “heartfelt anthology” of stories from the “Santeria” trio’s heyday, and is described as “Xanadu meets Superbad.”

“When you grow up in SoCal like I did, Sublime’s music is this powerful background radiation, permeating the culture,” says writer Ryan Cady. “You hear it everywhere.”

“I saw these guys like neighbors,” he adds. “As I research the human moments underneath their phenomenon with [drummer] Bud [Gaugh] and [bassist] Eric [Wilson], I get to share that feeling with everyone who picks up the book.”

Sublime: $5 at the Door is due out in June. You can pre-order it now via Z2Comics.com.

Z2 Comics has previously worked with artists including Gorillaz, Yungblud and Grateful Dead.
