Top Cow/Image continues to create rumbles of excitement over Zack Kaplan’s sci-fi new series, Metal Society, with art by Guilherme Balbi, colors by Marco Lesko, and letters by Troy Peteri.

With the animated METAL SOCIETY TRAILER unveiled earlier this month, the publisher decided to give fans a double reveal as they reveal Metal Society’s 1:25variant cover.

This cover is not only by legendary artist Marc SILVESTRI, CEO of Top Cow and Co-Founder of Image by the great Mexican colorist Alex Sinclair, known for his work on BATMAN HUSH and THE FLASH, often collaborating with Jim Lee and Scott Williams. Since it is Top Cow/Image’s 30 year Anniversary, it is great to see these iconic creators come together to work on this powerful piece for Zack Kaplan’s exciting new sci-fi series.

In addition, Top Cow is giving fans an exclusive look at the first 7 pages at Metal Society. 

Fans can pre-order all the variant covers of Metal Society at their local comic book shop or via PreviewsWorld Pullbox connected to your local comic book shop.

PORT OF EARTH writer ZACK KAPLAN teams up with hot up-and-coming artist GUILHERME BALBI in a dramatic new sci-fi miniseries that’s Blade Runner meets Rocky. 

In an inverted future, evolved robots have resurrected humans for manual labor. When a tribalistic cultural clash breaks out, a fearless human fighter and a frustrated, displaced robot will square off in a public MMA-style sport fight of epic stakes to determine once and for all who reigns supreme: man or machine.
