Top Cow and EP1T0ME gift metal music lovers and comic book fans a free digital 20+ page preview book of their upcoming one-shot comic, The Clay People: Colossus, which is inspired by the song “Colossus” by the band The Clay People, and written by Matt Hawkins (Think Tank, Swing) and Christian DiBari (Magdalena).
This one-shot is the second team up project between Top Cow and EP1T0ME, the first being St. Mercy.
“The song means different things to different people; the more we heard it, the more we envisioned a story about an underdog with new-found, out-of-control power and the ramifications that using it would bring,” said Richard Leibowitz, President at EP1T0ME.
This free preview book allows fans to think a bit deeper and contemplate the song and the story themselves.
The Clay People: Colossus one-shot follows a biracial boy in the Midwest who uses a supernatural gift from his grandfather to push back against two older boys who are terrorizing him. In a tale inspired by the song “Colossus” by heavy metal band The Clay People, intolerance, drug addiction, poverty, and boredom collide into a perfect storm of grisly revenge!
The Clay People: Colossus one-shot (Diamond Code DEC210075) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 16.
The Clay People: Colossus one-shot will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
