Interesting.

Another brilliant Tex Willer cover (by Claudio Villa). Issue 639 is out on monday (April 9) in good old Norway.

It should come as no surprise that comic book fans will enjoy the hell out of the fact that Babymetal is now entering into their universe. If anything I  would say that it is highly likely that fans of Japanese art and comics were among the very first to discover Babymetal in the West back in 2014. PREVIEWSworld tweeted about the “Apocrypha” graphic novel yesterday and this will be the talk of the town in the world of fandom in the next few months. Expect this to be a hit. I found the book listed at AdLibris here in Sweden today. Looks like it sports 144 pages. Meanwhile, Rock & Metal media in the West is waking up and the Fox Day announcement is everywhere now. I even saw an article from the Grammys Stateside a few days ago, prior to the Fox Day hype. There is a lot of goodwill for Babymetal out there.
