"The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" Are Coming From Heavy Metal

Kevin Eastman, owner and publisher of Heavy Metal Magazine, announced the launch of "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."  Eastman states “This incredible three book series featuring the stories of Michael Mendheim and art of Simon Bisley will also include special fan incentives and social media focused promotions and preview exclusives that aim to thrill our diehard fans, friends, fans and Heavy Metal followers.”

Raised by the Order of Solomon, Adam Cahill is one of a rare handful of highly trained warriors bound by 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 ofArmageddon. 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 cowriters Mike Kennedy and Sean Jaffe.

"I feel we have created a top notch horror story that combines the feel of the Matrix with Hellraiser.” said Michael Mendheim, creator and writer. “This project has demanded a lot of passion and commitment and it really shows.” Mendheim continues “The partnership with Heavy Metal is one that Simon and I are thrilled to have. They are the perfect publisher for this event.” Comics legend Simon Bisley says “A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making this book the book it is – it’s very gratifying that it has found a good home with Kevin Eastman and Heavy Metal Magazine I take my hat off to Michael for entrusting me with this huge project.”

Kevin Eastman adds "I've been a huge fan of Michael’s project from the moment I first saw it. The added bonus of the Four Horsemen series is that we also get to work with my longtime friend Simon Bisley again. And to add to the 35th anniversary celebration efforts for this Heavy Metal project we will be offering special incentives and preview exclusives for our friends, fans and retailers.”

Eastman continues with “One of the great promotions we have lined up is the Pestilence Art Contest on our Facebook page. Someone will win an original signed painting from Simon Bisley and ten finalists will be celebrated in the September issue of Heavy Metal!”
