New IRON MAIDEN Comic Coming From The Makers Of Heavy Metal, And It Looks Awesome!
Iron Maiden are teaming up with the creators of the Heavy Metal comic book series for Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, based on their mobile game of the same name.
Nerdist got the inside scoop:
As Heavy Metal told us, “Eddie’s immortal soul is shattered and strewn across the cosmos.” Okay, yes, we are onboard for that–go on. “Now, Eddie must journey across space and time to battle the twisted legions of The Beast, seek out the lost shards of his soul, and bring order to the realms.”
“As a lifelong fan of Iron Maiden, it is a privilege to publish the first comic giving a narrative to their iconic mascot, Eddie,” Heavy Metal’s Jeff Krelitz said of the project. “When we discussed the potential of coming together on this project it was immediately clear that there was no better home for Iron Maiden than Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal’s nearly half-century-long history of either working with or launching the careers of only the most accomplished artists continues here with the amazing team Iron Maiden has working on this series.”
The comic is written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton with art from Kevin J. West. It's set to premiere in July's Heavy Metal #287.
