Heavy Metal comic Maurice and the Metal Issue 3 receives PROJECT WE LOVE
What makes a hero? There’s a question that’s been asked since the dawn of time. But it’s the last 80 years where we’ve really defined the makings of hero. What make a hero could be the superhero of Superman qualities or a Rockstar of Lars Ulrich qualities.
Written by Aaron Sammut and drawn by artist Nicola Izzo, Issue 3 of heavy metal comic Maurice and the Metal explores the meeting of the superhero minds and continues the question of “why can’t a metalhead be a superhero?” in this gargantuan supercharged issue of 40+ pages.
The electrifying trials of a teenage drummer turned unexpected hero continue in issue 3 of Maurice & The Metal – “The Soldier of Metal”. Awakened by a nightmare of epic sacrifice, Maurice realises that he will have to face the music: endless gloomy goth music! The venomous V reveals to his dark army of doom-lovers a depressing plan to impose his will (and music) on the masses as a way to spread the sadness. Unwilling to be a bystander, Maurice is forced to enter a world of near-impossible choices that lead him to something he never saw coming: responsibility. Staring Into the Void, Maurice will ask himself a fateful question: “Do I have to?”
Maurice and the Metal – Issue 3 dropped on Kickstarter on the 24th May and in just under 24 hours received the legendary status of PROJECTS WE LOVE badge. Perhaps it was due to the unending supply of merch available or maybe it’s because Kickstarter staff love their comics METAL THRASHING MAD?
