Bleeding Cool was the website that first told you about the existence of Brian Azzarello and Simon Bisley's Three Floyds: Rise Of The Alpha King from Heavy Metal, that premiered at this year's Lollapalooza.
We'll all get to see what the fuss is about in November, when Heavy Metal publish the comic more widely.
Heavy Metal teams with legendary brewery, Three Floyds for an event unlike any other in publishing or brewing! This likely pairing will reveal and detail the story behind the characters of the brewery which boasts its own holiday for the most sought after beer in the world! Bringing together writer and beer aficionado Brian Azzarello (Dark Knight, 100 Bullets) and longtime Heavy Metal artist Simon Bisley, this new series is sure please comics fans and beer lovers everywhere!
It's the same month that Azzarello's work on Dark Knight III comes out, which will be fortuitous timing.
