According to Nerdist, Heavy Metal will unleash an IRON MAIDEN comic book this summer.
Based on the mobile role-playing game Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, the comic is set to feature the band's longtime mascot Eddie battling through the worlds of their albums.
Heavy Metal told Nerdist about the series: "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.
