After creating two extraordinary coming-of-age stories in graphic-novel form (the road to god knows... and Stargazer I and II), Ottawa comic book guy Von Allen made a sharp turn into heavy metal, aliens and devil worship and has come away with 2014’s  Council for the Arts in Ottawa’s Corel Endowment Fund award to help the “Metal Gods” project continue. In the first issue the content is adult-oriented with the requisite nipples, “Unghhh”s and explosions, but it’s impossible to miss the main characters’ gentleness typical of Allen’s earlier work. The new comic is now available on the huge digital comics site Comixology.com. Image courtesy of Von Allen.
