Two-time Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge is collaborating with Z2 Comics on her first graphic novel, Heartstrings, which will be released in June 2022. Every chapter of the book will tell the story of one guitar from the singer-songwriter’s large collection. 

Etheridge will work with comics writer Frank Marrafino (The Haunted Tank, The Final Symphony), music journalist Steve Hochman (Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone), and artist Manuela Pertega (Giraffes on Horseback Salad) to create the graphic novel. 

Heartstrings will be available as a softcover, with an MSRP of $24.99, as well as a hardcover, priced at $39.99. In addition, Z2 will offer several deluxe editions, ranging in price from $99.99 to $999.99 that will be available only through its website and will include vinyl records, art prints, and signed guitars.
