Heavy Metal will releash a comic book on Iron Maiden this summer, “Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast”. The book is based on the video game with the same tittle and features the band’s timeless mascot, Eddie, who has to battle against the forces of The Beast travelling through time. “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”. “Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast” was written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton with art from Kevin J. West, the book will premiere in July’s Heavy Metal #287.
