Legacy Beast the Comic is just 24 hours from release and we had the idea to show the comparative quality between the deluxe art associated with the fairly new genre of Heavy Metal compared to standard Comic book art.

The Derek Riggs original art work is pushing nearly 40 years old and it has clearly stood the test of time, look how it compares to the 2017 version of the same picture.

Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director at Phantom Music Management says, "After 40 years of unbridled creativity, innovation, and attitude, Heavy Metal has always been a home to the greatest talent in sequential storytelling and fantasy art. With a natural affiliation to the heavy music genre, it's a nexus point for counter culture and alternative arts. I can think of no better partner to explore Iron Maiden's Mythology and expand the Legacy Of The Beast!"

Three mini-series have been planned if the initial sales are high enough. and given the quality of the art and story, they should be he also said there may be collected graphic novel editions in the future.
