Megadeth and Heavy Metal Announce Graphic Novel and Album Release

Megadeth and Heavy Metal Announce Graphic Novel and Album Release

This year marks the 35thanniversary of MEGADETH, to which the band is set to release their ultimate greatest hits compilation, WARHEADS ON FOREHEADS, on March 22.  To further celebrate this, MEGADETH has partnered with premiere comics publisher, HEAVY METAL, to create the ultimate fan experience with a 350-page anthology of comic stories inspired by all the songs on the album.  The collaboration, titled DEATH BY DESIGN, features stories written and illustrated by top talent from comics, film, television and music and will be available worldwide at retailers everywhere on June 5, 2019.

The project, carefully curated by DAVE MUSTAINE and HEAVY METAL, is a powerful book that gives both insight and understanding into the universe of MEGADETH and its harrowed mascot, VIC RATTLEHEAD.

MEGADETH, working in close collaboration with HEAVY METAL, has collected an  unprecedented pool of talent for MEGADETH: DEATH BY DESIGN– making it any comic book or MEGADETH fan’s dream.  Brendan Small (creator of Metalocalypse) teams with Belen Ortega (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) for Hangar 18.  Dan Fogler (Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them) writes an apocalyptic tale insanely drawn by Andy Belanger (Southern Cross) for Rattlehead. An A-list talent pool rounds out the roster featuring Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), Brian Wood (DMZ), Justin Jordan & John Bivens (Spread), Leah Moore & John Reppion (Judge Dredd), Joe Keatingue (Popgun), Christine Larsen (Holy Diver), Frazier Irving (Annihilator) and more than 50 other talented creators.

Says Dave Mustaine: “I have always fantasized about MEGADETH doing something this gloriously electrifying and gruesome. I hope everyone will enjoy the graphic novel as much as I enjoyed working with HEAVY METAL to put it together for you.”

Jeff Krelitz, CEO of HEAVY METAL said “Since I was old enough to buy records, MEGADETH has been one of my favorite bands, not only for the great storytelling in the music, but the world building imagery on the album covers.  This opportunity to meld the two world together and tell stories inspired by their songs is a privilege that we are excited to present to the fans.”

The MEGADETH: DEATH BY DESIGN 350-page graphic novel will be presented in a 12.25”x12.25” prestige “album” format and comes in 4 different collector’s editions:

September Mourning Release Official Music Video for New Single, “Glass Animals”

September Mourning Release Official Music Video for New Single, “Glass Animals”

Hard Rock Graphic Novel Art Project SEPTEMBER MOURNING has released the official music video for their newest single, “Glass Animals.”

”’Glass Animals’ is about the fragmented soul. It’s about the realization that we are all broken. Something or someone has broken us and within that broken state we ultimately find the strength to survive. Musically, it’s a little bit of a tribute to one of our favorite bands: The Deftones. The song ties into the comic book as well…. Hannah is a broken soul who, through the help of September and Claire, finds the strength to face her personal demons and live again.” – Emily Lazar (Founder)

Shortly after Glass Animals drops, Image Comics is releasing September Mourning: The Complete Collection co-created by Lazar and Marc Silvestri, co-written by Mariah McCourt and David Hine, illustrated by Sumeyye Kesgin and Tina Valentino and published by Top Cow. “In a world where Reapers prey on the souls of the living, imprisoning them in the shadow-land of Mortem, there is one last hope for humanity…. September Mourning” describes Lazar. The graphic novel will be sold in comic stores, books stores (Barnes & Noble) nationwide and on Amazon.

To support the release of the graphic novel and new music, September Mourning will be hitting the road, supporting Smile Empty Soul. Before and after the dates, the band will also be doing a handful of headline shows that will be announced soon. Doing this tour the band will also be stopping by local comic retailers for special meet and greets and acoustic performances.

Tom DeLonge Sets December 9th Release For Limited Edition “Poet Anderson – The Dream Walker” Graphic Novel

Tom DeLonge Sets December 9th Release For Limited Edition “Poet Anderson – The Dream Walker” Graphic Novel

Coming December 9th!

Coming December 9th!

Multi-platinum-selling artist TOM DELONGE has announced a December 9th release for “Poet Anderson – The Dream Walker,” a graphic novel and art collector book that compiles all three issues of the critically acclaimed Poet Anderson comic series, 20 pages of stunning never-before-seen concept art and the instrumental version of Angels & Airwaves’ acclaimed album The Dream Walker, which hit No. 1 on iTunes.

A trailer for the collection can be seen below!

The limited edition “Poet Anderson – The Dream Walker” set is being released thorough Magnetic Press in collaboration with DeLonge’s entertainment company, To The Stars, Inc. and available for purchase HERE.

More than just a prequel to the film and novel trilogy, “Poet Anderson – The Dream Walker” is the must-read origin story that introduces readers to The Dream World, where a deep mythology begins to unfold and where Poet’s long and vibrant journey begins. Nerdist described the Poet comic books as “stunning, filled with a kinetic energy.” We The Nerdy said the books showed “a ton of imagination, creativity and [are] absolutely gorgeous to look at.”Graphic Policy declared it “visually amazing and completely beautiful” and Digital Trends praised its creator by writing, “No doubt about it, Tom DeLonge is a modern day dream weaver.”

The collection follows the release of Poet Anderson …Of Nightmares (Simon & Schuster), which was written by DeLonge and New York Times best-selling author Suzanne Young and hit No. 1 on Amazon’s Teen & Young Adult Thrillers & Suspense chart. The novel is the first of a planned trilogy of Poet Anderson adventures from the duo. Rolling Stone premiered an excerpt from the book, which can be read HERE and Billboard premiered “Home,” a track from the four-song Angels & Airwaves ‘…Of Nightmares’ EP that accompanied the book.

The graphic novel, book and EP continue the story of Poet Anderson, a character DeLonge introduced last year with the animated short “Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker” (which won “Best Animated Film at the Toronto International Short Film Festival). That film also came with the Angels & Airwaves companion  album, The Dream Walker.

As reported in the Los Angeles Times, DeLonge has also written and directed a live-action Poet Anderson short film featuring “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey as Poet that’s set for a 2016 release.
