Heavy Metal​’s dedicated, longtime fans will now have a new way to help stay awake, alert, and focused on reading more comics, now that the magazine and Dark Matter Coffee have collaborated to produce Heavy Metal Coffee.

The Chicago, IL-based Dark Matter adheres to a philosophy where quality coffees are sourced based upon traceability, innovation, and social responsibility, enforcing a level of quality control not unlike the magazine, which is dedicated to delivering premium genre content from legendary creators and emerging talent.

Each subscription release will feature high concept coffee and art!

The artwork in question is a collage of Heavy Metal​ iconography past and present, featuring the long-running TAARNA and NELSON characters, along with images from more contemporary offerings from the publisher like Dylan Sprouse’s Sun Eater, Matthew Medney’s Dark Wing, ​Brendan Columbus’ Savage Circus, ​and Bart & Michelle Sears’ Maiden​. Each quarter for the first year, Heavy Metal​ and Dark Matter will update the art, appealing to collectors and completists who have supported the magazine for years.

Heavy Metal Coffee ​ is available at the publisher’s online shop now for preordering, and starting to ship for the holidays. The monthly subscription is $22 dollars a bag, including shipping or you can buy it ala carte for $25 plus shipping. The product will be available on HeavyMetal.com and DarkMatterCoffee.com

SDCC 2019: TNT and TBS Brings Snowpiercer Bug Bars to Comic-Con!

Snowpiercer EXO bars

In anticipation of TBS’s upcoming post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer, the network is partnering with EXO for the first and only time to distribute “Bug Bars” at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 via vending machines. Created by EXO, which is owned by Aspire Food Group, these one-of-a-kind protein bars are made out of cricket protein powder. Fans just enter their email address into the vending machines to receive a bar in addition to a special piece of Snowpiercer content. 

WHEN: Thursday, July 18, to Sunday, July 21
WHERE: TBS’s Snowpiercer Booth 4215 in the Comic-Con® Exhibit Hall

In the series, the Snowpiercer train carries the remnants of humanity around the world after the earth has become a frozen wasteland. While the front of the train enjoys the luxuries of first class, the Tailies huddled in the back of the train survive on daily rations of bars, which are made out of bugs. These bars at Comic-Con® offer a taste of the story, but with a flavor one would expect from the front of the train.

Snowpiercer will also have a panel on Saturday, July 20 featuring stars Jennifer ConnellyDaveed DiggsAlison WrightMickey SumnerLena HallSteven Ogg, and executive producer and showrunner Graeme Manson from 3:00 p.m. – 3:50 p.m. in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.

*Allergy Warning: please note cricket products may trigger crustacean and shellfish allergies and contain peanuts, almonds and coconuts. 

In the announce, Mohammed AshourCo-Founder and CEO, Aspire Food Group said:

It’s a thrill for me, as co-founder and CEO of a company dedicated to normalizing the consumption of insects in the western world, to have this chance for so many to taste a part of the Snowpiercer story I’m such a fan of while hopefully joining the two billion people who already consider insects a normal cuisine. Our Snowpiercer cricket bars have a solid texture and ingredients like peanuts and strawberries so the taste is more familiar while you’re trying something new. I wouldn’t typically consider a custom product partnership, but the alignment of Snowpiercer with Aspire’s own path of radical technology solutions to the real-world challenges of food insecurity and climate change made for a perfect partnership.
