Embrace the Heavy with more “Murder Falcon” Heavy Metal variant covers
It should be pretty clear by now how much we love Murder Falcon. It’s wonderfully illustrated, action-packed, and full of more heart and humanity than you’re likely to find anywhere else.
It’s also supremely, righteously Metal, what with the core conceit being “dude shreds on a guitar that gives strength to a giant falcon and also the falcon has a bionic arm.” It rules, is what I’m getting at.
To highlight its roots in metal, Murder Falcon will have some “Heavy Metal variant” covers that pay tribute to some classic metal albums. Vanesa Del Rey channels Megadeth and Erica Henderson rocks some Dio, so check them out below.
