First Issue Of Iron Maiden Comic Series To Officially Be Released In October

It was previously revealed that Iron Maiden‘s iconic mascot, Eddie was going to be featured in a new five-part comic book series published by “Heavy Metal” magazine, and now the release schedule for those comics has been confirmed. Here it is:

Issue #1 – October 11, 2017
Issue #2 – November 15, 2017
Issue #3 – December 13, 2017
Issue #4 – January 17, 2018
Issue #5 – February 14, 2018

The comics are based on the “Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast” video game story line, as well as the band’s albums. Writers Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton worked on them, along with artist Kevin J. West.

“Heavy Metal” previously said the following about the comic:

“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.”

“Heavy Metal”‘s Jeff Krelitz also added:

“As a lifelong fan of Iron Maiden, it is a privilege to publish the first comic giving a narrative to their iconic mascot, Eddie. 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.”
