Tenacious D Takes Post-Apocalypto to Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Fantagraphics Announces a Second Printing

SEATTLE, WA—SEPTEMBER 24, 2020—In the wake of Tuesday night’s thunderous appearance by Tenacious D on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote their new graphic novel, Post-Apocalypto, publisher Fantagraphics has announced that it will go back to press on the book to meet ongoing and unabated demand for The D!

The book has gone virally popular and has been well-received since the release less than a week ago, on September 15th. Fantagraphics has pulled the trigger on a second printing of Post-Apocalypto, the graphic novel drawn by Jack Black and written by Black and Kyle Gass. The second printing of Post-Apocalypto is set to hit stores in early December, perfect timing for holiday shopping.

Post-Apocalypto finds Tenacious D thrust into a world of complete and utter destruction following the drop of an atomic bomb. Surviving the attack in classic cinematic fashion (a good old imperishable 1950s refrigerator), the duo quickly learn that new forms of evil have spawned from the blast. One thing becomes apparent – for humanity to prevail, Tenacious D must save the world. And they will!

Praise for Post-Apocalypto:

“This raunchy sugar-high of a graphic novel captures the fun side of life after an atom bomb attack: things will be weird, but they will also rock. … a self-consciously juvenile lark, best read while playing Tenacious D at 11.”
— Publishers Weekly

“A funny and surprisingly heartfelt ode to friendship delivered with the manic energy of artists
excited to transgress.”
— Library Journal
