Swot up on heroes and villains with Metallica’s new comic

In need of some bedtime reading? Metallica have just released a biography as a comic book called Orbit: Metallica.

Written by Michael L Frizell and illustrated by Jayfri Hashim, the 28-page comic features the story of the band’s formation, as well as memorable moments in their career.

Frontman James Hetfield released an extract to give fans a sneak peak. “Sabbath was everything that the 60s weren’t, you know?” it reads.

“Their music was cool because it was completely anti-hippie. Completely. I hated The Beatles. Jethro Tull. And all that other hippie shit. Life’s not like that.”

2015 is set to be another hectic year for the band. Not only are they set to headline this year’s Reading and Leeds festival in August, but they’re also said to be a quarter of the way through a brand new album.

Earlier this year, guitarist Kirk Hammett told NME: “The songs are ever-changing at this point. Nothing is etched in stone. We still have a lot of material we have to sift through, still,”

Orbit: Metallica is available to buy here and fans can choose from two covers, one of which is designed by Avenged Sevenfold artist David A. Frizell.
