Heavy Metal issue 280 Entertainment Weekly

Heavy Metal 280

Heavy Metal 280 arrives on newsstands this month, marking the publication’s maiden voyage with Grant Morrison at the helm as their new editor-in-chief. Morrison took the graphic literature world by storm in the 1990s and 2000s, penning notable titles such as The Authority, The Invisibles, and Seaguy.

A longtime periodical source of inspiration for tabletop rpg referees everywhere, Heavy Metal magazine is “the world’s greatest illustrated magazine,” where open-minded readers can go to “explore ancient secrets, forgotten worlds, savage futures, a universe at war, your darkest fears, your deadliest desires.” *

15 features appear in this issue, packed into 134 pages; an anthology to remember. And, the first 2 words appearing on page 135 are “DISCOVER INSPIRATION.”

Highlights include:
“BEACHHEAD” (a memorable battle chant that you’ll want to plug right in to your tabletop rpgs!)
“GODDESS” (a look at Flidais; a goddess and conqueror of Celtic origins!)
“FIENDY” (a chocolate sundae madonna!?)

Heavy Metal magazine is published six times a year, and is intended for mature readers only.
