Nerdist today broke a story we’ve been hard pressed to keep to ourselves, but now it can be told: Heavy Metal is publishing Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, a comic series inspired by Iron Maiden’s catalog and starring the band’s well-known mascot Eddie.

“As a lifelong fan of Iron Maiden, it is a privilege to publish the first comic giving a narrative to their iconic mascot, Eddie,” says Heavy Metal CEO Jeff Krelitz. “When we discussed the potential of coming together on this project it was immediately clear that there was no better home for Iron Maiden than Heavy Metal.”

Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast will appear in the next issue of Heavy Metal (coming in July) prior to launching as a standalone comics series. Get the full story at Nerdist.com: THROW UP SOME HORNS FOR HEAVY METAL’S NEW IRON MAIDEN COMIC BOOK

[…] While, over the years, the album artwork featuring Eddie (AKA “Eddie The Head”) has been contributed by a host of talented artists, beginning in 1980 with Derek Riggs’ work on Iron Maiden (Riggs would produce the character in all its incarnations through 1992), Hugh Syme (of RUSH fame), Melvyn Grant and several others, this book’s stunning artwork was penned by Kevin J. West, with words contributed by writers Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton.
