This sounds odd. (http://www.punknews.org/article/53143/ministrys-al-jourgensen-to-launch-comic-series)

"Ministry's Al Jourgensen will be releasing a 13-issue comic book series,set to premiere at next July's Comi-Con in San Diego. Al teamed up with British artist Sam Shearon for the series which will see each issue based around a Ministry album. The co-creators promise a single story arc joining all 13 comic books together, and is themed in chronological order similar to Ministry's catalogue. The main thread will focus on aliens, conspiracy theories, the occult and the vile and corrupt world of governments... and of course record labels.

The story is seen as an alternative view of the life and times of Alien F. Jourgensen and his rise to 'super' power that you won't find in his autobiography. Combining elements of history and real-life Jourgensen experiences - including many tidbits that were left out of his recent autobiography - the comic books will have our hero traveling the world as a rock musician where he meets and interacts with figures such as William Burroughs and Timothy Leary.

"which will see each issue based around a Ministry album" So, two issues will be mediocre, three will be awesome, and the rest will suck horribly.

They need to cancel the series at issue 11 and then put out the final two issues a couple of years later.

More on this here (http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2013/10/ministrys-al-jourgensen-co-creating-comic-the-devils-chord/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter).

"Each of the 13 issues in Ministry: The Devil’s Chord — The Chronicles Of Alien F. Jourgensen will be based on one of the industrial-metal band’s albums, including Psalm 69, The Land of Rape and Honey, and The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste."

Al's Facebook page is a good read if you want to hear about his pitched battles with the local raccoon population. Now if he turned that into a comic I'd be all over it.
