Menton3's Chasing The Dragon #1 in Heavy Metal February 2021 Solicits

We note that despite promises by Heavy Metal Magazine that they would resolicit Cold, Dead War in January – after Bleeding Cool posted legal challenges from the estate of Dan O'Bannon – that they have yet to do so. Instead, February 2021 sees the solicitation of new series Chasing The Dragon by former IDW exec Denton J Tipton and the also-controversial Menton3.
