Disturbed has some cool new offerings that fans will surely want to get their hands on.

The band has announced a new five-part comic book series called Disturbed: Dark Messiah. Per the listing of the series’ first book, “‘Dark Messiah’ takes place in the not-so-distant future, as firefighter Griffin DeSanto finds himself a man out of time, stumbling into a harsh world of poverty, automation, and subjugation. Technology rules and a tech empire built on suffering keeps the population in check through surveillance and mechanized policing. Though lost, Griffin is never alone. He was brought here for a reason, and The Vengeful One is his guide.”

The first installment of Disturbed: Dark Messiah will ship in July and is available for pre-order at Incedium.Online.

In addition to the comic book series, Disturbed’s mascot “The Guy” is being honored with a new action figure.

Retailing for $29.95 and also available at Incedium.Online, “The Guy” is five inches tall and comes with various accessories including 12 points of articulation, ancient chains of imprisonment, a chain whip, a rune base and a second set of hands.

“The Guy” action figure will begin shipping in October.
