Yesterday, Bleeding Cool ran a report on the August 2020 solicitations of Heavy Metal, including Heavy Metal Magazine #300, with an impressive creative castlist. We headlined one who stood our, a certain Jonathan Hickman, the current mastermind of the Marvel X-Men revival.
Kris Longo, President of Geek Riot Media who has just started doing some consulting for Heavy Metal, tells me that Hickman's name was in there in error. It hasn't been changed on Diamond's site, and it is going to appear listed in this week's Diamond Previews. That's the kind of thing that may make the magazine returnable, so I can see why they want to get the word out.
Longo tells me that "it looks like someone on our side submitted some incorrect info to PREVIEWS. Would you be so kind as to correct that in your post?" Happily, Kris.
Here is the Heavy Metal Magazine #300 solicitation with Jonathan Hickman removed.
