Description

Belzebubs is a "trve kvlt mockumentary" focusing on
the everyday challenges of family life: raising kids, running a small business,
and making time for worship. Except the kids are named Lilith and Leviathan, the
business is a blackmetal band, and the worship... isn't exactly aimed upstairs.


In a few short years, what started out as
improvised socialmedia doodles has now become a wildly successful webcomic with
hundreds of thousands of fans. The irresistible cartooning of JP Ahonen (Sing No
Evil) combines relatable sliceoflife humor with overthetop occult antics and
references from metal music to Lovecraftian horror, making Belzebubs a devil of
a good time.

The official Belzebubs tiein
music CD comes out January 2019 through Century Media (the world's largest heavy
metal record label). Has over 200,000 Facebook fans. For fans of Adult Swim's
Metalocalypse and other lighthearted spoofs of heavy metal & the occult
(which includes pretty much everyone in those
subcultures)

Review quote

"While this can be read and enjoyed at face value, it is also an interesting take on the concept of an outsider and sub culture and portrays this as a happy loving family who in their own way are totally well-adjusted." -House of Prog "Hilarious, inventive, and original, it's a hard read to put down... Belzebubs brings a really new viewpoint and take on a genre known for taking itself too seriously." -Spill Magazine
