Anthrax's Scott Ian To Write 'The Demon' for DC Comics - With Sam Keith!

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian -- the writer of last year's "Lobo: Highway To Hell" -- will pen a new "Demon" miniseries for DC Comics later this year. Ian's "Lobo" collaborator Sam Keith will be on-board to handle the art duties.

Ian told the DC Comics Blog:

"Holy crap I am excited to be writing The Demon for DC in 2011! I’ve been a fan of Etrigan since I was kid buying comics off of the racks. Jack Kirby created him for Hell’s sake and now I get to spew Hellfire like it’s never been spewed before. And I get to blow up Las Vegas.

It’s going to be a real vulgar display of power (pun intended).

Thanks DC for sending me to Hell and back!"

This is a busy time for Scott Ian -- he released "Ironiclast," the debut album from his newest band The Damned Things (which features members of Anthrax, Fall Out Boy and Every Time I Die), last month, and is launching a nationwide tour on January 19th.
