STARWARD Chapter 5 is out today in the new Heavy Metal Magazine #310, but thanks to the publisher, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive five-page preview for you!
About the series:
STARWARD is Heavy Metal’s first YA story and follows college student and summer lifeguard Stephanie Cohen, who realizes she’s a reincarnated cosmic warrior who must defend reality from chaos as one of seven Starward Sisters. In this chapter, Stephanie battles the demon Kaos and his minions in an effort to protect the universe from destruction. The series is an epic hero’s journey-fantasy tale mixed with a modern-day coming-of-age comedy.
STARWARD is by writer Steve Orlando and artist Ivan Shavrin, with letters by Saida Temofonte. It is edited by Joseph Illidge. The series is currently coming out as a serial in Heavy Metal Magazine, and will be published as an Elements comic series down the road (collecting the chapters plus bonus content).
In addition to STARWARD, today’s new Heavy Metal Magazine #310 doubles down on the horror with two chapters of Ron Marz’s historical war-horror story Swamp God, plus the return of George C. Romero’s bone-chilling Night of the Living Dead prologue The Rise, and many more terrifying tales.
