Save the world through the power of Metal with Image Comics’ “Murder Falcon”

The electric guitars wail.

The drums pound away. 

The bass drives us home.

And somewhere, in the distance... a falcon cries out.

Have you ever thought that rock and roll could save the world?  Warren Johnson has, and he's going to prove that with his upcoming series Murder Falcon.  It has everything you'd ever want in a story: a relatable protagonist ("no girl, no gig, no future, oh no!"), a ridiculously amazing title hero, and some sweet licks and chunky riffs.  Check out the details below, and prepare to have your faces melted off.

PORTLAND, OR, 07/09/2018 — This October, Eisner-nominated writer/artist Daniel Warren Johnson (EXTREMITY, Space-Mullet) will launch an all-new head-banging, face-melting adventure from Image/Skybound Entertainment: MURDER FALCON.

The world is under attack. Monsters have invaded our streets and our homes, and there’s only one thing that can stop them: METAL.

“Music is something that brings me a lot of joy, and it was my goal to translate that into images, thus bringing MURDER FALCON into the world,” said Johnson. “It's a super combo of all the things I love, and I'm so excited to share it with you all.”

Jake’s life is falling apart: no band, no girl, no future…until he meets Murder Falcon, a legendary monster-killer sent from The Heavy to destroy all evil. But he can’t do it alone—he needs Jake by his side, shredding up a storm. Now, with every chord Jake plays on his guitar, the power of metal fuels Murder Falcon into all-out kung fu fury on those that seek to conquer Earth.

Better watch out, monsters—METAL WILL DESTROY ALL EVIL!

Murder Falcon #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on October 10.  Check out the preview trailer below.
