LOS ANGELES, 3.24.2022 — Top Cow/Image continues to create rumbles of excitement over Zack Kaplan’s sci-fi new series, Metal Society, with art by Guilherme Balbi, colors by Marco Lesko, and letters by Troy Peteri.

With the animated METAL SOCIETY TRAILER unveiled earlier this month, the publisher decided to give fans a double reveal as they reveal Metal Society’s 1:25 variant cover.

This cover is not only by legendary artist Marc SILVESTRI, CEO of Top Cow and Co-Founder of Image by the great Mexican colorist Alex Sinclair, known for his work on BATMAN HUSH and THE FLASH, often collaborating with Jim Lee and Scott Williams.

In addition, Top Cow is giving fans an exclusive look at the first 7 pages of Metal Society.
