Every so often you hear about a new comic series that just thoroughly gob-smacks you. From the first preview image you absolutely know that you are on board. For me, that new comic series is Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! This year, the always awesome Heavy Metal Magazine is celebrating its 35th anniversary, and apparently they are pulling out all the stops– starting with the new Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse comic series from comics legend Simon Bisley! I can barely contain my excitement for this title.
From the official Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse/Heavy Metal website announcement:
“The End is Here- Welcome to the Apocalypse! Raised by the order of Solomon, Adam Cahill is one of a rare handful of highly trained warriors bound bu bloodline to guard the Seven Holy Seals that contain the End of Days. But ageless forces have conspired towards a prophetic event foretold by numerous cultures and multiple religions, and when that cryptic date arrives, they strike against the order without mercy! The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a dark, gritty, action – horror story inspired by the biblical tale of Armageddon. In addition to the works of Simon Bisley, the series will feature additional art by the late Stan Winston, Tim Bradstreet, Chad Fidler, and Dave DeVries, and script written by co-writers Mike Kennedy and Sean Jaffe.”
Oh, my! As if this information wasn’t enough to instantly sell you on Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, give the special promotional trailer below a view (trust me, it is a MUST watch).
