Iron Maiden - Comic Book To Arrive This Summer


Iron Maiden have another treat for their fans this summer. Publisher Heavy Metal are set to release a new comic book series featuring Iron Maiden mascot Eddie. It's based on the band's mobile game "Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast" and will see Eddie battle through the worlds featured on the heavy metallers' album covers. Interested? Find more details below.

Heavy Metal explained: "Eddie's immortal soul is shattered and strewn across the cosmos. 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."

Written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton with art from Kevin J. West, "Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast" is set to premiere in July's Heavy Metal #287, prior to launching as a standalone comics series.

They already came out with Book of Souls last year! I guess we gotta wait for another five years for an album:\.

Still, a comic book about Eddie is both a strange and entertaining idea. Hopefully it's good.

See how it sings like a sad heart
And joyously screams out its pain
Sounds that build high like a mountain
Or notes that fall gently, like rain.
