Heavy Metal, Disturbed, And Incendium Team Up For Comic Series

Disturbed, Incendium, and Heavy Metal Entertainment have announced Dark Messiah, a five-part comic book series. Published under Heavy Metal Entertainment and Incendium’s music-focused OPUS imprint, the story was conceptualized by Incendium CEO Llexi Leon and Tim Seeley and written by Seeley, with illustrations by Ángel Hernández, and cover artwork by Ryan Christensen.

Dark Messiah takes place in the not-so-distant future, as firefighter Griffin DeSanto finds himself a man out of time, stumbling into a harsh world of poverty, automation, and subjugation. Technology rules and a tech empire built on suffering keeps the population in check through surveillance and mechanized policing. Though lost, Griffin is never alone. He was brought here for a reason, and The Vengeful One is his guide.

Dark Messiah begins as a 5-issue comic series; the first print edition of each issue will be released as a prestige-format limited edition collectible comic book, featuring cardstock covers, specialty foil treatments, glossy pages, and individual numbering. Disturbed’s Dark Messiah will extend beyond the printed page into toys, apparel, and collectibles, including an action figure of “The Guy”.

The first printing of each Dark Messiah issue will be limited to 3000 copies at the devilish price of $16.66, and available to order. The first issue is available to order now and ships July 2021. “The Guy” action figure is also
available to pre-order for $29.95, shipping October 2021.
