As the title suggests, instead of searching for Wally somewhere in those cluttered book-spreads looking for—who else?—Iron Maiden mascot Eddie. The puzzle book is published by Simon & Schuster and will be available beginning in May of 2023, but you can pre-order your copy today right here.
A product overview of Where Is Eddie? from the publisher reads, "Are you brave enough to find EDDIE? You'd better find him before he gets you! Search for Iron Maiden's iconic figurehead throughout insanely detailed illustrations based on some of their incredible album covers.
As you search for EDDIE, plunge into (15) double-page puzzles inspired by IRON MAIDEN's legendary songs and albums. Walk the edgy East End streets of Killers, escape the maddening asylum of Piece of Mind, trek across the desert ruins of Powerslave, then plummet headfirst down into The Number of the Beast's hellfire–every page pays glorious respect to the sheer awesomeness of IRON MAIDEN's imagery.

It seems like poor Bruce Dickinson has had to handle his biz, so to speak, quite a bit when it comes to crazy fans. Who else remembers this awesome rant from a show in Greece earlier this year, after a fan set of a flare in the pit.
"The cunt with the fucking flare," yells Dickinson. "I'm trying to sing up here. You fucking cocksucker. You Greek cunt. I've gotta fucking sing. Alright? Fuck you."
"You Greek Cunt."
Dickinson 1, Greece nil. We'll see you after halftime, folks.
