The MEGADETH: DEATH BY DESIGN 350-page graphic novel will be presented in a 12.25”x12.25” prestige “album” format .
THIS HEAVY METAL EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION WILL COINCIDE WITH RELEASE OF MEGADETH’S 35th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION, ‘WARHEADS ON FOREHEADS”
This year marks the 35thanniversary of the release of MEGADETH, to which the band is set to releasetheir ultimate greatest hits compilation, WARHEADS ON FOREHEADS, on March 22. To further celebrate this, MEGADETH has partnered with premiere comics publisher, HEAVY METAL, to create the ultimate fan experience with a 350-page anthology of comic stories inspired by all the songs on the album. The collaboration, titled DEATH BY DESIGN, features stories written and illustrated by top talent from the comics, film, television and music world, all inspired by the songs from the album.
The project, carefully curated by DAVE MUSTAINE and HEAVY METAL, is a powerful book that gives both insight and understanding into the universe of MEGADETH and its harrowed mascot, VIC RATTLEHEAD.
MEGADETH, working in close collaboration with HEAVY METAL, has collected an unprecedented pool of talent for MEGADETH: DEATH BY DESIGN – making it any comic book or MEGADETH fan’s dream. Brendan Small (creator of Metalocalypse) teams with Belen Ortega (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) for Hangar 18. Dan Fogler (Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them) writes an apocalyptic tale insanely drawn by Andy Belanger (Southern Cross) for Rattlehead. An A-list talent pool rounds out the roster featuring Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), Brian Wood (DMZ), Justin Jordan & John Bivens (Spread), Leah Moore & John Reppion (Judge Dredd), Joe Keatingue (Popgun), Christine Larsen (Holy Diver), Frazier Irving (Annihilator) and more than 50 other talented creators. John Gallagher’s brilliant cover is a face melter.
Says Dave Mustaine: “I have always fantasized about MEGADETH doing something this gloriously electrifying and gruesome. I hope everyone will enjoy the graphic novel as much as I enjoyed working with HEAVY METAL to put it together for you.”
Jeff Krelitz, CEO of HEAVY METAL said “Since I was old enough to buy records, MEGADETH has been one of my favorite bands, not only for the great storytelling in the music, but the world building imagery on the album covers. This opportunity to meld the two world together and tell stories inspired by their songs is a privilege that we are excited to present to the fans.”

“Fragile as a Song” Poems & lyrics of Tony Levin, with foreword by Peter Gabriel and introduction by Bill Bruford.64 pages, leatherette bound, 6” x 4”.
All copies are autographed by Tony LevinFrom the Bill Bruford introduction: "With a smile on its face, this little anthology offers food for thought and refreshment for the soul. On a good day it may even, in T. S. Eliot’s words, 'make us see the world afresh'."
From the Peter Gabriel foreword: “I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have, with its sharp intelligence, gentle humour, quirky observations, and wonderful memories”
From Tony Levin: These are my poems from through the years, and lyrics from songs on previous albums, current albums and future ones. Some are quite personal, others humorous. The title poem is about making a musical connection with a bonobo ape.
We fashioned the book as some of my favorite poetry books are: small, leatherette bound, with no publicity blurb on the back. I’m very grateful for the wonderful foreword and introduction by my friends Peter Gabriel and Bill Bruford
The book is sold only here on my Bandwear storefront, because the markup elsewhere would have required a higher retail price. Oh, and I’ve signed every copy. Thanks for checking it out.
