Murder Falcon’s ‘Heavy Metal’ Variant Covers Pay Homage To Classic Albums

by Oliver MacNamee

Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment have revealed their first “Heavy Metal” variant cover for Daniel Warren Johnson’s Murder Falcon.

Each issue of this action series will feature a “Heavy Metal” variant cover that pays tribute to a different classic heavy metal album cover. Issue one features series artist Daniel Warren Johnson on Murder Falcon #1 Cover B, with various artists on future issues.

Johnson explains his reasons for his own choice of tribute cover:

Murder Falcon is a series that has a little bit of everything that I love: kung fu, beer, having fun, playing music, and—most importantly—Metal! So what better way to celebrate this comic than to homage one of my favorite records, Painkiller by the immortal Judas Priest.

Murder Falcon #1 will be in stores on Wednesday, October 10th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, September 17th.
