Courtesy of Heavy Metal, we have your first look at The Adventures of Adrienne James #0. It’s an ongoing series, with stories first debuting in Heavy Metal Magazine, then published in the comic format as part of Heavy Metal’s “Elements” comics line which includes chapters from the magazine plus bonus materials.
In fact, AIPT spoke to the co-creator and co-writer Matthew Medney recently about this very project. Check that out here.
Issue #0 (the Prologue issue) debuts December 1st, 2021 with the first issue premiering in February 2022. The series will be published on a monthly basis following that. The trade is expected in Fall 2022.
Check out the preview below.
High adventure among the stars! In a far-off galaxy obsessed with rarity and the exotic treasures of a million worlds, thousands of treasure hunting factions vie for the rarest treasure of them all – the fabulous and mysterious E-Ra-Du! Long rumored to be the source of ultimate power and hidden somewhere in the galaxy by the long-lost Elders, the E-Ra-Du holds the key to dominance over the cosmos.
The star-scattered secrets leading to it and the spoils it promises have long been lost over eons. And now AeroJ, capital of the galaxy, is rocked by the death of the leader of the virtuous Lumans, Waldun Li, while he and his partner, the intrepid and infamous Adrienne James, were hot on the trail of the E-Ra-Du! Still reeling from his shocking death, Adrienne, who must now take on the mantle of High Luman is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime – which begins, of course, at her own funeral.
