At San Diego Comic-Con, get ready for a new Iron Maiden comic book. No, not a new name for Riri Williams, but new actual Iron Maiden comics, yes as in the heavy metal band, appearing appropriately enough in July’s Heavy Metal Magazine.
Based on the mobile game Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, the Iron Maiden comics will feature Eddie battling through the worlds of their albums. Remarkably, this is the first time Eddie has officially appeared in a comic book, though there have been plenty of knock-offs over the decades. Courtesy of Nerdist we get the info.
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.
Written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton with art from Kevin J. West, in July’s Heavy Metal #287. Check out the intentional nineties-style colouring…
