By Staff Reports
Heavy Metal has dropped information on the landmark #300 issue, including the reveal of Cover A, and new on Brendan Columbus, son of filmmaker Chris Columbus, and his debut in Heavy Metal!
Cover A of Issue 300 Features Heavy Metal Heroine Taarna
Since the 1981 Heavy Metal movie, Taarna the Taarakian has been the avatar of all things Heavy Metal, so it’s no wonder she gets Cover A of our much anticipated 300th issue, an all-star celebration of Heavy Metal contributors past, present and future. The issue drops the week of San Diego Comic Con (July 23-26).
First-time Heavy Metal cover artist Claudia Ianniciello knocks it out of the park with her depiction of Taarna, who’s previously been painted by Chris Achilleos, Alex Ross, and numerous others.

Brendan Columbus’ “Savage Circus” Starts in Heavy Metal #300
Brendan Columbus, son of filmmaker Chris Columbus, will launch his debut feature in issue 300, a 10-part serial is called “Savage Circus.” Here’s the quick take:
A circus train collides with a stolen armored car, spilling its cargo — a ferocious menagerie collected by mad ringleader Lewis Savage — on the only road in or out of town. It’s a bad day to be Deputy Brady Harrison. With no power, no communications, and animals on the loose, it’s looking to be a blood-red Christmas.
