Joe Satriani’s Crystal Planet comes and Incendium under the OPUS imprint

Incendium and Heavy Metal Magazine have announce the launch of Crystal Planet, created by Joe Satriani and Ned Evett, under all-new music-focused OPUS imprint. The comic features a script by Tony Lee, art by Richard Friend, color by Carlos Cabrera, lettering by Jacob Bascle, and edited by Llexi Leon.

A vivid space odyssey where Satchel Walker, a man out of time, finds himself caught between desperate factions as they battle for resources in the perilous orbit of a dying star. In a bold and brutal saga of sentient storms and Wingsuit armies, it’s music, and more importantly, the power and emotion that music can conjure, which could bring an end to the conflict, restore harmony to the timestream, and reveal Walker’s true place in the universe.

Crystal Planet begins as a 5 issue 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. Each first printing will be limited to 1998 copies at $19.98, and available to order. The first issue is available to order now and ships in March 2021.

The world of Crystal Planet will extend beyond the printed page into toys and collectibles. A Joe Satriani Crystal Planet action figure is also available to pre-order for $29.95, featuring Joe in a Tri-Diver suit from the comics with his signature Crystal Planet Ibanez guitar. Shipping May 2021.

Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes Unleashes Comic Book Fury on iOS

The brainchild of British guitarist and comic creator Llexi Leon, the multi-media Eternal Descent phenomenon has finally been unleashed on the world of video games. Developed by London-based PLA Studios, the action-packed, 3D scrolling endless brawler Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes is now available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch*.

Based on IDW Publishing’s cult comic book series, Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes places gamers in the role of Sirian, a nomadic warrior fighting back endless hordes of demonic creatures as they rampage through the city streets. Armed with a supernaturally charged electric guitar, Sirian must traverse the depths of the underworld and eliminate the Pit Lords within – all to a killer soundtrack.

Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes also features appearances and original performances from Joe Satriani, Misha Mansoor and Andrew W.K. who act as heroic tag-team assists activated by power-up tokens within the game. Wayne Static and Michael Amott take on the role of end of area boss characters, gatekeepers to the realms on Sirian’s journey to Hell.

With more rock/metal music acts slated to appear in future updates for Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes, instrument brands such as ESP, Jackson and Dean Guitars have leant their support to ensure that all cameo musicians appear with their signature instruments for real shred guitar action!

Easy to pickup but difficult to master, Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes is now available on the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch priced £1.99/$2.99/€2.39.

A series of updates with new characters and additional content are planned for release throughout 2014.

* An iPad 2 or newer, iPad Mini, iPhone 4S/5, or iPod touch (5th gen) is required to play Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes on iOS.

IDW Publishing’s Eternal Descent Returns With Volume 2 Graphic Novel!

Continuing to explore the unholy alliance that has long existed between the worlds of heavy metal and fantasy comics, multi-media phenomenon Eternal Descent returns with the second volume of the much-heralded comic saga!

Collecting six single issues, an exclusive ‘Cobalt’ one-shot, and extensive art galleries into a 200-page graphic novel set for release in March 2013 by IDW Publishing and available for preorder worldwide, Eternal Descent Volume 2 immerses fans in a dark fantasy world where demons and angels battle for supremacy alongside some of the biggest names in metal, including Arch Enemy, Firewind, Periphery, and Joe Satriani!

With the fallen Sirian consigned to his fate and Lyra consumed by her inner demons, Loki’s designs draw ever closer to their terrible conclusion. As the conflict rips into the fabric of time, Gus G. returns with an unlikely guide, offering a glimmer of hope for our heroes… The disturbance reaches far across the universe and heralds the arrival of Joe Satriani, The Extremist, whose incredible energies bring balance to the cosmos, but leave our world consumed by Khaos magic. Michael Amott lies at the heart of this volatile new reality, empowered by mysterious amber artifacts and rivaled only by Misha Mansoor, a time-traveling wanderer wielding unparalleled technology! With lives lost, heroes reborn, and darkness rising, don’t miss the climactic resolution to  Eternal Descent Volume 2!

The brainchild of British guitarist and comic creator Llexi Leon, who has teamed with American animation veteran Shaun McLaughlin and DC Comics writer Justin Peniston to bring his unique artistic vision to fruition, Eternal Descent is set in a fantasy universe where lost souls lurk in every shadow, and darkness veils sinister designs. Heavy metal could be the key to salvation… or the gateway to destruction!

Offering comics, graphic novels, animated shorts, limited edition ESP guitars, a signature Digitech ­effects pedal and an upcoming video game to keep fans occupied, Eternal Descent is fast becoming an international phenomenon.

Set to become a 21st century cult classic, fans of comics and heavy metal alike will be staggered in the scale of Eternal Descent’s ambitions and the second volume of the cult comic series promises to plunge readers even more deeply into the graphic novel’s dark, multi-faceted world.
