All five of the “Onyx” line of books being announced were created by Matthew Medney, Morgan Rosenblum, Jonny Handler, and Pete “Voodoo Bownz” Russo, and written by Medney and Rosenblum. Notable artists featured in the series of OGNs include Francesco Pisa, Jon Lam, Giuseppe Peppe, Santa Fung, Andrea Adiletto, Fabrizio Ugolini, and many more.

Stable will be on sale in winter of 2022, followed by Remnant coming out summer of 2022, both of which are collaborations with Tomato Farm Agency, then The Awakening in fall of 2022, Dogma Resistance in winter of 2023, and The Red in spring of 2023.

Along with the slate of graphic novels hitting shelves soon, Heavy Metal’s President and Head of Studio Tommy Coriale is in the process of developing screen adaptations of Herø Projects’ graphic novel collection, based on the original IP. Heavy Metal plans to produce the television and film projects with additional partners. Stable and The Red are the first two of the titles being developed, with the others in the pipeline.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Artie and the Wolf Man

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Artie and the Wolf Moon (Graphic Universe) – Artie sneaks out at night to discover their mother is a werewolf!

Avengers Tech-On #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of fun as a powered up Red Skull strips the world’s heroes of their powers.

Bad Sister (First Second Books) – A middle grade graphic memoir following a young girl who undergoes a crisis of conscience, realizing that she is a “bad sister.”

Batman #112 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” kicks off as the Scarecrow’s plan for Gotham unfolds.

Bountiful Garden #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – In the year 2200, a team of teenage scientists are sent on a terraforming mission to a distant planet. When they are awakened abruptly, ten years early, halted above a strange planet, the teens are tasked with trying to figure out why they’re stalled – or what stalled them.

Deadbox #1 (Vault Comics) We have an early review and praise this debut.

Glamorella’s Daughter #2 (Literati Press) – The debut issue was fantastic introducing us to a new hero and her daughter who’d rather read books than punch bad guys.

Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land #1 (Marvel) – Ka-Zar is back! We always want to see what’s done with this character that never quite catches on.

Last Flight Out #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Humanity has chosen to evacuate Earth as a father attempts to make amends with his daughter during the end of the world.

Mazebook #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Jeff Lemire. Nuff said.

The Nice House on the Lake #4 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – This series has been amazing with a great mix of horror, mystery, and a focus on the characters. This one delivers some twists that have a major impact.

Nine Stones #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Disturbing dreams shake Alistair “Allie” Jacobi’s nights. But his daytime life is not much better.

Not All Robots #2 (AWA Studios) – In the year of 2056, robots have replaced human beings in the workforce. Mark Russell and Mike Deodato deliver more brilliant commentary.

Savage Circus #6 (Heavy Metal Entertainment) – Strange creators on the loose and a group of thieves. The series has been a lot of fund mashing up genres.

Search for Hu #1 (AfterShock) – A son must protect his parents who a feud breaks out between the two sides of his family.

Snelson #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue was interesting looking at “cancel culture”. It didn’t quite deliver the commentary we hoped for but it was enough that we want to see what the second issue has to say.

Star Trek: Mirror War #0 (IDW Publishing) – Star Trek and the Mirror Universe are two things together that always have us interested.

Whistle: A New Gotham Hero (DC Comics) – When Willow discovers that her “uncle” Edward and his friends are actually some of Gotham’s most corrupt criminals, she must make a choice: remain loyal to the man who kept her family together, or use her new powers to be a voice for her community.

Heavy Metal Announces The Axe from Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman and Brian Posehn

The Axe

Heavy Metal has announce a new comic book series co-created by Joe Trohman, guitarist of multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-nominated Fall Out Boy and The Damned Things, and Brian Posehn, actor extraordinaire and stand-up comedian. Trohman and Posehn’s story The Axe will be featured as an ongoing serial in the legendary illustrated horror, sci-fi, and fantasy Heavy Metal Magazine and then collected into a comic book series.

A horror-comedy adventure, The Axe follows three nerdy, skatepunk, metalhead teens that, upon stealing an old, cursed guitar, open a portal to an interdimensional hell-scape, Sheol. Thus, the kids fall into a world where they must fend-off hideous ancient creatures—that would very much like to kill and eat them—while trying to get back to Earth. Imagine Army of Darkness meets The Goonies.

Trohman and Posehn are teaming up again with artist Scott Koblish, who is illustrating The Axe; Koblish and Posehn previously collaborated on a stellar run of Marvel’s Deadpool comic series, and all three creators recently contributed to the Anthrax: Among The Living graphic novel. Artist Diego Fichera has also come on board to color The Axe series.

Heavy Metal is also currently developing The Axe as a screen adaptation as part of a slate of projects that Heavy Metal is producing based on original IP from the acclaimed publisher.

Posehn and Trohman’s The Axe series will premiere in Heavy Metal Magazine as a serial in early 2022, and will be collected into a comic book series, and ultimately a trade paperback. More news on the screen adaptation to come.

Heavy Metal Celebrates 40 Years by Rocking this Limited Edition Custom Guitar

Heavy Metal Entertainment, Incendium, and Minarik Guitars have announced that they are teaming up to release a limited edition custom electric guitar to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the legendary Heavy Metal film. The handmade guitars are available to order, in time for the anniversary of the film, released on August 7, 1981. Each Heavy Metal custom guitar will be made to order on a first come, first served basis for the remainder of 2021.

The custom instrument will be built by Minarik Guitars and features stunning airbrushed art of Taarna and more iconic scenes from the movie on the body of the guitar, while the fretboard inlay displays the Heavy Metal logo along with Taarna’s famous sword, channeling lightning down the length of the neck. The back of the guitar pays homage to the B-17 segment, looking like metal torn straight off one of the bomber planes with a bolted steel airbrushed effect, complete with bullet holes and missile artwork. Additional highlights and hidden accents can be seen when the instrument is placed under UV Black Light.

The artwork which covers the Heavy Metal custom guitar was designed by Matt Skiff and airbrushed by the legendary Craig Fraser, known for his work on Iron Maiden’s instruments. This marks the second brand collaboration for boutique workshop Minarik Guitars, following a sold-out release for the 50th anniversary of Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride. 13 electric guitars and 1 acoustic guitar were built to commemorate the popular attraction. For this project, Heavy Metal Entertainment is collaborating with Incendium as a premier licensing partner. Incendium is a lifestyle brand and production company known for its impressive slate of animation, comic book, toy, and video game projects.

The Heavy Metal custom guitar, which is priced at $19,666, will be available exclusively from http://www.incendium.online and features a dazzling array of craftsmanship. The instrument’s top, back, and sides are built from select Honduran mahogany checked for weight and resonance, and it features a 3 piece hard maple neck through body construction, with a figured Ebony fretboard and headstock plate which incorporate 100s of pieces of assorted inlay materials—including stone, mother of pearl, brass, aluminium, and acrylics—to depict Taarna’s war blade charged with lightning that strikes the entire length of the neck, ending with a blood red Heavy Metal logo. The unique contours of the body feature hand cut abalone trim and 5-ply binding, which frame the airbrushed artwork on the carved top.

Upon assembly, the Heavy Metal custom guitar is appointed with a MannMade intonatable wraparound bridge, precision machined from aircraft grade Aluminium, fitted with brass saddles and studs. This is fitted with a bone nut and gold Gotoh machine heads, whilst the 3-way toggle connects a DiMarzio AT-1 in the bridge and Gravity Storm in the neck, customized with gold bobbins and nickel poles, continuing the mixed hardware look. Clear speed knobs on the 2 volume and master tone knobs allow the graphics to shine through.

This limited edition custom guitar is built to order and only available to order this year, for the remainder of 2021. The guitar includes a hard case, certificate of authenticity, and a set of Heavy Metal branded plectrums from Dunlop in a matching tin.
