Forbidden Planet's Best-Selling Comic This Week Won't Be Batman, But Iron Maiden #1

I get the word from the Forbidden Planet chain that, far from Batman: Lost #1 being their best-selling comic this week, based on pre-orders alone, it will be Iron Maiden #1 from Heavy Metal, based on the mobile game for the heavy metal band.

It also helps that they have their own exclusive edition. But that's true of many comics, and it doesn't normally have this effect.

They will also have signings from the comics author Ian Edginton at both their Birmingham store this Saturday and their London store next Wednesday.

With each victory, and with the aid of old friends, Eddie will restore his fearsome powers as he draws ever closer to facing the Unholy foe behind his fall – and thwarting a plot to unravel all of Creation! The first official Iron Maiden comic series, based on the band's hit mobile role playing game, Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, where players battle as Eddie across the many worlds of Iron Maiden's discography, from the ancient sands of Powerslave to the far future of the Final Frontier.
