Heavy Metal Issue 297: The Winter Special, 19-Page Preview

Heavy Metal 297

Heavy Metal 297, the Winter Special, is on its way! This frosty wonderland of festive stories covers the gamut of wintry intrigue — you’ll find bad Santas, unusual Christ-children, and the spirit of giving turned on its head. These are not the winter’s tales they put on Lifetime or Hallmark.

Heavy Metal 297, the Winter Special, features three covers — a candy-sweet scene by Brandi Milne, a midnight journey gone wrong by Jacques Parnel, and a quality Krampus by Dwayne Harris.

Knave, D.J. Kirkbride, Nick Brokenshire, Frank Cvetkovic and Nick Brokenshire’s “Urban Developments.” Cover artist Brandi Milne is featured with a gallery and interview, as is crazy Christmas card creator Andrew Shaffer. And speaking of Christmas cards, we’ve given the last eight pages of the issue to twisted seasonal greetings by 21 artists. All this plus chapter 11 of Richard Corben’s “Murky World!”
