Expect Your Deluxe Edition Of Atomahawk From Image Comics In October

by Hannah Means Shannon

 

Atomahawk has been serialized in Heavy Metal Magazine, and is now coming to deluxe, oversized edition from Image Comics in October. Written by Donny Cates (God Country, Babyteeth, now Marvel exclusive) and illustrated by tattoo artist Ian Bederman, with lettering by Taylor Esposito, the series was described thus by Grant Morrison:

A screaming black hole feedback squall of death metal Kirby-kozmik energy spinning straight towards your prefrontal cortex. Donny Cates and Ian Bederman forge a stylish, super-heavy 21st-century mythology of blood, sentient steel, and rebel circuitry. A razor-nova of explosive writing and searing visuals that bury themselves deep in your skull. ATOMAHAWK REX!

An “out-of-this-world adventure of the Cyberzerker and his mighty Atomahawk”, the story follows the quest to free an imprisoned god.

You can hear Cates and Bederman talk a little bit about this series and the collection in our San Diego Comic-Con 2017 coverage right here.

Atomahawk (Diamond Code AUG170545) will be available in stores on Wednesday, October 11th. The final order cutoff from retailers is Monday, September 18th.
