Metal Gods Issue 2 Teaser

"Robby Reed" (pen name for historian Kirk Kimball) over at the terrific Dial B for Blog has a number of posts detailing the old ads and other copy from Marvel and DCs silver and bronze age of comics.  I truly get a kick out of that kind of thing, mainly because I think it played a key role in how readers of those eras engaged the characters and stories from these companies.   I tend to believe that teasers for future issues combined with ads that showcased stories and characters from other series really helped hook readers.  They not only built awareness but they became part of the reading experience.

Well, perhaps I shouldn't be so broad.  It certainly brought a degree of engagement for me that was a critical part of my mainstream reading experience.

With that in mind, I will be doing little teasers and whatnot for future issues as we go along.  I'm really hoping that comiXology will have issue 2 available by the end of June, but we'll see.

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.
