When you hear that Jack Black and Kyle Gass( better known as JB and KG of the Greatest Band in the World Tenacious D) are doing a live streaming body for New York Comic Con 2020 Metaverse, you can bank on chaos, comedy, and an octopus with genitalia. The duo recently released Post-Apocalypto, a 180 -page graphic novel published by Fantagraphics and was demonstrated by Black himself.
The jesters/ musicians chitchatted with moderator Petra Mayer about how the epic falsehood came about.
Black illustrated, “Yeah. So clearly when Trump won the election me and Kage[ KG] were inspired to write Post-Apocalypto’ reason we looked at each other and we were like,’ it’s the end of the world. What are we doing? We got to do something about this.’ So we made this post-apocalyptic, I guess you would call it a alerting, to the world of our impending catastrophe. And we basically wrote it and organized this work to save the world. I guess that’s the simple rebut, wouldn’t you say that’s about claim, Kage? ”
Gass rung in, “I think we wanted to save the world as best we are also able. And so we had to do it with our boulder and our doodling. Jack’s doodling.”
Black continued, “And the thing about it was, it was also an opportunity for us to explore our favorite category of post-apocalyptic cinema and graphic fictions. It’s the best genre there is. It’s the most entertaining. I think we can all agree. You know, Road Warrior…Terminator. These are the best movies ever made. You’re too going to see a little pinch of Wizard of Oz, which some people think is the first post-apocalyptic adventure if you count potent, powerful ground destroying squalls as an holocaust of its own.”
The pair continued discussing the importance of robot sex as the surrogates of the future, specific how Terminators hold “tremendous physical pleasure.”
Mayer pointed out how the book pushes borders and expected, “What came first? The storey, the music, or the giant, I’m going to call it, Dicktopus? ”
“It’s sort of like an octopusian ogre that has all the genitalia in the universe, ” Black mused. “Sorry I got lost in the dicktopus. First came the terror of our impending fate that we were going to have a massive power-hungry idiot at the helm of our country and, you are well aware, the demolition of the earth seemed imminent. So what came first was we expressed the view that song, right? You know, hope. It was a song of hope.”
The panel attempted to open up questions to the live public, but it was slow proceeding due to technical issues. One question that did get an answer was, will there be a sequel to Pick of Destiny?
“Well, I mean, in a manner that is, Post-Apocalypto is Pick of Destiny 2 because it’s Tenacious D in. That’s all it really is about. So the question is, what will be the next Tenacious D in? What will that be? ” Black questioned.
