Conner will provide a cover with her longtime colorist Paul Mounts. Interior art for the graphic novel will be provided by John McCrea.
The volume will be released to the trade in hardcover and softcover editions, and in deluxe and signed super deluxe editions direct-to-consumer by Z2.
Conner and Palmiotti, the team that brought DC’s Harley Quinn to new heights of popularity, both expressed long ties to the band. "As a teenager, Debbie Harry was one of the super-heroes I wanted to grow up to be," Conner said in a statement accompanying the announcement. "In fact, I still wanna grow up to be her."
"I think it would be impossible to give Blondie and the downtown New York music scene the proper respect and visceral representation it deserves if I didn’t live through it," Palmiotti said. "My life was comic books and music and there was no more exciting time in my life than when Blondie hit the music scene."
