Hands down, this is the most exciting offering in this month’s Previews catalog! The 1981 Heavy Metal animated movie is an indelible part of my adolescence. The confluence of Star Wars in 1977, availability of cable television, and HBO’s rise to prominence in the early 80’s made this movie a foundational piece of entertainment in my youth. Gorgeous Alex Ross covers to boot! Must own.
“Heavy Metal’s legendary character finally gets her own ongoing series courtesy of writer, Alex de Campi (No Mercy, Semiauto Magic) and artist Stephane Roux (Power Girl) delivering another tale of the immortal warrior’s quest to avenge injustice. Alex Ross provides two beautiful cover selections, launching this character into her greatest adventure – Comics.”
