Bestial Avenger #2 - Into the Void

Bestial Avenger #2 - Into the Void

92pg, A5, xerox, English

This great DIY comic continues. This issue starts at where they stop last time, arriving at the doomsday fest. There is an interview session with the mighty Pentagram. Is this happening in real life (and later drawn for this project)? And that crazy Japanese dude too? Those were some of the hilarious part in this issue.

Pentagram have a broken bass guitar, they offered them to borrow theirs. Later on their van broke down and Pentagram offered them a lift and they travelled together in the same van to the next venue. Bobby Liebling becomes their roadie/gig crew and the next gig and that shocked those people there.

The story ended when they arrived at Thirsty Club, still closed. Now I want #3!

This issue also available for download.

While reading this comic, I remembered one underground comic project here in Malaysia, called "Under One Flag" (if not mistaken) released in mid 1990's. It’s a comic project with editor of Obscure People zine and few others. The story is about metal and underground music fans. Anyone here remember this? Wondering where is Borg now.

Bestial Avenger #1 - No Sleep 'till Doomsday

Bestial Avenger #1 - No Sleep 'till Doomsday

52pg, A5, xerox, English

Metal-themed comics is something I rarely see. There's none of this kind of project that I know off. This comic is made by Nagawika. The story is about a 2-piece doom band called Bestial Avenger and their journey in the scene. With a drummer and lady named Sima as the guitar/vox. Interesting story and at times hilarious too. Not sure if the drawing resemble anyone in the real world except the well-known metal 'personalities' I assumed. There is a scene where the audience start making fun of the band and asking for Nirvana song when they saw Sima on stage. Once this band starts to play, they blew the place with their music. The fun continues afterwards. This issue ended when they arrived at The Doomsday Fest.

Good drawing with excellent xerox quality. This comic is issued by SataniCat Comics is a sub-division of Forgotten Wisdom Production (FWP) dedicated to Metal minded comics.

Last time I checked, the entire issue can be viewed online. Check that out. If interested to buy a copy can get this at FWP.
