Cover for issue 3

Metal Gods Issue 3 Cover by Von Allan

Here's the cover for issue 3. This one was fun to do and actually ties into page 1 of the actual issue. I was certainly thinking of Brutal Legend, the truly wonderful metal influenced game from Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions. Specifically, I wanted to do a bit of a riff on the Zaulia. Hence Lou's sexy outfit. I was tempted to put her in face paint, but restrained myself. Besides, it wouldn't have tied into the story.

I also made up a quick blurb for the Corel Endowment for the Arts award that Metal Gods won. Since I come from a book retail background, it's kinda neat to do something like that, mainly because I used to sell so many award winning books that did (and continue to do) the same thing. Besides, the award is awesome and it's nice to celebrate it.

Issue 3 has been approved by comiXology, but I'm not sure when it'll show up. Hopefully in early August, but when I know more I'll certainly post it here.

About Metal Gods

Nick Connelly was a hard-working guy; he'd been a heavy metal roadie, a mechanic, a steel worker, and even a volunteer firefighter. He liked his adventures blue-collar and down to earth...unlike his wayward parents, Art and Wanda, a flaky duo whose own adventures took them from one charismatic charlatan to another. Nick and his girlfriend, Lou, were used to the postcards they got, filled with glowing words about the newest savior; Nick and Lou rolled their eyes but Art and Wanda always came back eventually, a little lighter in the wallet but happy...until, one time, they didn't.

As the weeks and months passed without any sign of the pair, Nick and Lou finally packed up the ole van and set off to find them...and what they found was worse than they could've imagined. Art and Wanda hadn't just taken up with another religious salesman in a cookie-cutter suburb somewhere...this time they'd sworn allegiance to a truly evil force; an ancient demon that existed only to tear the universe apart. Wipe out humanity. Poison the world. And it had the power and minions to do it, too. Nick and Lou only had each other to draw on...their courage; their love; and, of course, their van.

So, it's Nick and Lou against zealous cultists, supernaturally altered humans, well-armed flesh 'n blood thugs, and a powerful corporation, each of whom wants the demonic power for themselves. And the prize? Not just the safety of Art and Wanda...but the future of the entire world.
