Head-Lopper Comes to Image Comics


Andrew MacLean's Head Lopper seems to be a success and Image Comics wants to get it out to as many more people as possible. That's why the publisher will launch with a double-sized first issue, with 80 pages of story and a premium pin-up gallery for the regular price of just $5.99.

In Head Lopper #1, mighty swordsman Norgal and his unlikely companion, the severed head of the blue witch Agatha, have been summoned to the Scottish Isle of Barra to rid the town of the sea monster plaguing its shores. But what the duo did not intend is to find a much more sinister and ancient evil. The two now face a series of trials that will test both their strength and their faith. Even if they survive the island, can they survive each other's company?

MacLean said of the series: “Head Lopper (a.k.a.: the most metal comic ever) comes from the love I had watching Ray Harryhausen's creatures in Clash of the Titans and Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Conan as a kid. Oh, and it’s also the most metal comic ever.”

Head Lopper #1 (Diamond Code: JUL150559) will be available on Wednesday, September 9th. Cover B by Rafael Grampá will be available with Diamond Code JUL150560. Full press release below.
