We are DELIGHTED to share the news that Heavy Metal’s recent “Taarna: The Last Taarakian” comics are getting a full collected release! Written by Stephanie Phillips (“Batman,” “Harley Quinn”), with art by Patrick Zircher (“Action Comics,” “Suicide Squad”), Al Barrionuevo (“Batman,” “Martian Manhunter”) and Christian Rosado, the collection is available as either a hardbound edition or paperback of the mini series through Simon and Schuster.
The legend lives! From the death of the last Taarakian and a collapsed universe, Taarna was born. Heavy Metal’s flagship character returns in a new tale of cosmic mystery and adventure.
From the death of the last Taarakian and a collapsed universe, Taarna was born. Heavy Metal’s flagship character from the animated film returns in a new tale of cosmic mystery and battles throughout the multiverse in her war against Kako, the embodiment of chaos. This is the story of a millenia-old battle between godlike beings, with all sentient life caught in their path. A new life begins for Taarna.
We highly suggest picking up the collection, because the art and story are fabulous. Especially if you’re a Taarna fan like we are. (And even moreso when Heavy Metal themselves chimes in on things like her new armor.)
You can also order the Taarna collection in either hardbound or paperback from Amazon. The paperback is set to release on January 18th, 2022. The hardbound releases on July 19th, 2022.
