Metalocalypse/DethklokWe're big fans of the Adult Swim animated series "Metalocalypse" around Splash Page HQ, so we were psyched to bring you exclusive previews of the first two issues of Dark Horse Comics' "Metalocalypse/Dethklok" comic book series. We're continuing that trend today with an exclusive preview of the third and final issue of the miniseries.

"Metalocalypse/Dethklok" #3 features a story by series creator/writer Brendon Small and series director/designer Jon Schnepp, with interior art Lucas Marangon and covers by Schnepp and "The Goon" creator Eric Powell. The issue hits shelves February 23, 2011.

You can check out an exclusive preview below, but be warned: when the most brutal band in the world heads to comics, things get even, well... brutaler. Read More...

Metalocalypse / Dethklok comicBack in September we gave you your first look at "Metalocalypse/Dethklok," the new comic book series from Dark Horse Comics based on the Adult Swim animated series "Metalocalypse" — and now we have an exclusive look inside the second issue!

Written by "Metalocalypse" creator/writer Brendon Small and director/designer Jon Schnepp, the second issue of the comic finds the band returning to Helsinki after an earlier performance that awakened a massive, angry, and viciously destructive troll. In our six-page preview, the band debates the existence of the supernatural as only they can, and gets ready for what's likely to be an even more devastating encore.

"Metalocalypse/Dethklok" #2 hits shelves December 15, and will feature a cover by "The Goon" creator Eric Powell. Read More...

Metalocalypse/DethklokLast year, the harder-than-hardcore "Metalocalypse" crew made their comics debut in a crossover with Eric Powell's slackjaw-stomping hero, The Goon. It looks like they enjoyed their time in the comics world, because next month we'll see the black-metal musicians of Dethklok go solo in Dark Horse Comics' new "Metalocalypse/Dethklok" series — and we have your exclusive first look at the series!

Based on the popular Adult Swim animated series "Metalocalypse," the comic will feature stories by series creator/writer Brendon Small and director/designer Jon Schnepp. Eric Powell and Schnepp will create the covers for the series, with Lucas Marangon providing the interior art.

They're the most brutal band on Earth and the world's seventh-largest economy, and we're the site bringing you a three-page preview of their solo comics debut! Check out Eric Powell's cover and the first three pages below, then read on for the full solicit info. Read More...

It's no secret that Eric Powell's "The Goon" is one of our favorite comic book series around Splash Page HQ, but even though we've seen the star of the award-winning series partner with Hellboy for an occasional team-up adventure, this is one match-up we didn't see coming. We're proud to announce that this summer The Goon will face the likes of "Dethklok" band members Nathan Explosion, William Murderface and the rest of Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse" cast in a new one-shot issue titled, appropriately enough, "The Goon Vs. Dethklok."

Written and drawn by "The Goon" creator Eric Powell alongside "Metalocalypse" creator Brendan Small, the special will hit shelves in July 2009. Check out the exclusive promo video created by Small for "The Goon Vs. Dethklok" below:

Feel like your face was just rocked off by the merest hint of this collaborative effort? Yeah, same here. After the jump, see the full cover to "The Goon vs. Dethklok" and get everything we know about the series thus far. Read More...
