EXCLUSIVE: 'Metalocalypse/Dethklok' #2 Preview

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.
