Iron Maiden Graphic Novel

Iron Maiden fans, get ready to embark on a thrilling journey as the legendary band partners with Z2 Comics to bring you an epic graphic novel based on their iconic 1983 album, ‘Piece of Mind.’ The graphic novel is set to launch on November 21st, and it promises to be an exhilarating celebration of the album’s 40th anniversary.

A Unique Tribute to an Iconic Album

‘Piece of Mind’ remains a timeless classic, featuring unforgettable tracks like “Where Eagles Dare,” “Die with Your Boots On,” and “The Trooper.” Iron Maiden enthusiasts will undoubtedly be delighted to see these songs come to life in an entirely new way.

Z2 Comics, known for its successful collaborations with heavy metal acts like Anthrax and King Diamond, has pulled out all the stops to make ‘Iron Maiden: Piece of Mind’ a masterpiece. The graphic novel is not just a retelling of the songs; it delves deeper into the album, creating new storylines and dimensions through captivating narrative and stunning imagery.

Frontman Bruce Dickinson, who contributed to the writing with his piece ‘Revelations,’ expressed his excitement about this project. He believes that the graphic novel format allows for a more profound exploration of the album’s themes and provides a fresh perspective. “With ‘Revelations,’ it allowed me to add more layers and dimensions to the lyrics and add a new twist,” Dickinson explained. “Equally as exciting was bringing together some of the top writers and illustrators in the industry who are all actual fans of the band, to add their creative ideas inspired by the songs, Eddie, and the album itself. Z2 did a tremendous job in pulling this all together to create more than just a graphic novel, it’s what I consider a work of art.”

A Team of Top Talents

The creative team behind ‘Iron Maiden: Piece of Mind’ is nothing short of remarkable. The novel was edited by Rantz Hoseley, who describes his involvement as a dream come true. Other notable writers who contributed to the project include Steven Grant (‘The Punisher’), Tony Lee (‘Doctor Who’), Ivan Brandon (’24Seven,’ ‘Viking’), Sacha Gervasi, Antony Johnston (‘Atomic Blonde’), Leah Moore, John Reppion (‘Conspiracy of Ravens’), Brian Posehn, Chris Roberson (‘iZombie’), and Alison Sampson (‘Hit-Girl’). The roster of illustrators includes Carson Thorn (‘Batman the Barbarian’), Damien Worm (‘The October Faction’), Francesco Dossena (‘Dylan Dog’), Christian Rosado, Staz Johnson (‘Rogue Trooper’), John Pearson (‘Mindset’), Michael Avon Oeming (‘Powers’), and Danijel Žeželj (‘Luna Park’).

Breathtaking Artwork

Between each story, ‘Piece of Mind’ features original pieces of art by renowned illustrators such as Montos, Ghoulish Gary, Steve Chanks, Jan Meininghaus, Kyle Hotz, Jay Geldhof, Darin Hazmat, Travis Knight, Akirant, and Nat Jones. The combination of these talented artists promises a visual feast that complements the rich storytelling.

Multiple Editions for Fans

For fans who want to immerse themselves fully in the ‘Piece of Mind’ experience, the graphic novel comes in five different editions, each offering a unique collectible experience. The Oversized Deluxe and Asylum Editions come in a special “asylum” clamshell with a locking mechanism, featuring Eddie snarling from behind the die-cut bars of the asylum doors. When you “unlock” the book, Eddie breaks free of his chains and straitjacket, a thrilling interactive element.

In addition to these, there’s ‘The Trooper’ Cutaway Edition, featuring the standard hardcover graphic novel with cover art by Travis Knight. This edition, limited to 666 copies, retails for $40 and includes a foil collector’s card featuring Knight’s artwork.

The top-tier Asylum Edition, priced at $300, includes various extras like art prints, a replica concert ticket, four collector’s cards, and an Eddie asylum model kit (shipped separately). Pre-orders for these editions are available through Z2 Comics.
