by Olly MacNamee
Zack Kaplan (writer), Guilherme Balbi (artist), Marco Lesko (colourist) and Troy Peteri (letterer) have an new sci-fi series out this May from Top Cow/Image Comics; Metal Society. And today we get a first look at a seven page preview of the first issue, plus the revelation of a 1:25 variant cover by Top Cow CEO and Image Comics’ co-founder, Marc Silvestri with colours by Alex Sinclair.
“PORT OF EARTH writer ZACK KAPLAN teams up with hot up-and-coming artist GUILHERME BALBI in a dramatic new sci-fi miniseries that’s Blade Runner meets Rocky.
In an inverted future, evolved robots have resurrected humans for manual labor. When a tribalistic cultural clash breaks out, a fearless human fighter and a frustrated, displaced robot will square off in a public MMA-style sport fight of epic stakes to determine once and for all who reigns supreme: man or machine.”
Metal Society #1 will be out on Wednesday, May 4th, in print and digitally from Top Cow/Image Comics
