    DEATH BY DESIGN Graphic Novel - Episode: The Mechanix

    2019 marks the 35th anniversary of the formation of the pioneering thrash-metal band Megadeth, and the group is celebrating the milestone with the release of the 35-track 3-CD collection Warheads on Foreheads. We at Heavy Metal are honored to share in this moment with Megadeth: Death by Design, a 350-page anthology of comic stories inspired by all 35 songs from Warheads on Foreheads. The collection is presented in a 12.25″ x 12.25″ prestige “album” format. The stories are written and illustrated by top talent from the comics, film, television and music world. Carefully curated by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Heavy Metal, Megadeth: Death by Design is a powerful book that gives both insight and understanding into the universe of Megadeth and its mascot, Vic Rattlehead.

    A cry of redemption

    
to break free from control and correctness that dominate our everyday gestures and relationships.


    Not to escape life, but to give voice to its most shameless part:

    
quickness, invention, strength

    
and fire-red.
