MURDER FALCON “HEAVY METAL” VARIANTS SALUTE THE CLASSICS

Image Comics Skybound

Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment have recently revealed the first “Heavy Metal” variant cover for MURDER FALCON by writer/artist Daniel Warren Johnson, colorist Mike Spicer and letterer Rus Wooton. Each issue of the head-banging action series will feature a “Heavy Metal” variant cover that pays tribute to a different classic heavy metal album cover. A variety of brutally talented artists will contribute to this variant cover line, kicking off with series artist Daniel Warren Johnson on MURDER FALCON #1 Cover B.

“MURDER FALCON is a series that has a little bit of everything that I love: kung fu, beer, having fun, playing music, and—most importantly—METAL,” said Johnson. “So what better way to celebrate this comic than to homage one of my favorite records, Painkiller by the immortal Judas Priest. YOU’RE WELCOME.”

MURDER FALCON #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, October 10th.

The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, September 17th.
