- Full Description
Some say that today's most innovative artists are not hunched over a desk pouring their souls out onto dead-tree or a Wacom -- but spray-painting and wheatpasting them onto walls. Don't tell them where art doesn't belong, because that's exactly where they'll take it. This issue includes conversations with leading artists Shepard Fairey and Hebru Brantley, and presents a thrilling tale from Tristan Eaton (all three are cover artists as well). With unconventional storytelling from other creators, plus "Murky World" by Richard Corben, Grant Morrison and Cerebus artist Gerhard collaborate and more.
"The Rabbits" by Ron English; "In the Land of Umbra" by Cliff Dorfman & David Arquette, with art by Lurk; "Leap of Faith" by Beau Stanton, "Free Your Mind" by Nychos, "The Chronicles of a Brick Lady" by Lady Pink; "The Language of Revolution" by Swoon, and more stories and artwork.
Heavy Metal went on a sabbatical for much of last year and just at the end began publishing new issues. We decided it was a good time to begin handling it again. With the lack of newstands today, I expect many people don't even know it's still being published. So beginning with issues #296 and 297, we'll be bring them in again as they appear.
An oddity occurred on this issue: we only got a tiny number of of the cover variant we tried for, by Deih, so we turned around and reordered copies of this variant cover by Eaton. As I write this, we do have five left of the Deih cover, also.
