And so begins the Grant Morrison Era at Heavy Metal.
Heavy Metal #280 is here! This is the much ballyhooed, and deservedly so, debut issue for our new Editor in Chief, Mr. Grant Morrison. Within its pages you will find a blast of excellently illustrated, maddeningly mind-bending tales by Heavy Metal regulars and debutantes. It’s all kicked off with an editor’s note that is an unprocessed, unfiltered slice of Morrison’s brain, that comics fountain from whence sprung The Invisibles, Flex Mentallo, The Filth, and a host of name-brand stuff (Superman, X-Men, JLA, etc.).
Here are all three covers and a sampling of interior pages from this landmark issue, which is on newsstands now and available in our online shop—enjoy!
