We’re introduced to Jake, a guitarist with a lot of baggage struggling to get by in life and not necessarily caring about it. Living with a guilt that seems to numb him to his own turbulent situation in life. One day, he’s attacked by a mysterious creature. After a brief struggle, the beast pushes him down onto his old broken guitar, when Jake then tries to defend himself with a piece of it. Suddenly his guitar is repaired in his hand and a humanoid cyborg falcon warrior appears in front of Jake. Murder Falcon is here to show Jake the way of metal, and vanquish all evil.

This Issue

Jake is hard at practice trying to get back to pique form, but he’s rusty. Murder Falcon lets Jake know the better he plays, the better Falcon fights. Before they can even get a full jam session in there’s a call to action, a monster attacking downtown. Jake and MF arrive on the scene ready to kick some creature tail when they run into Jakes old bass player. Murder Falcon rejoices as he is one of the prophesized warriors of metal needed to vanquish the greater evil. Remembering his guilt, Jake is reluctant to bring his old friend into a life-threatening conflict.

Thoughts

This series is keeping me very much interested and entertained. As a bass player I feel like this issue is for me if I’m being honest. The relationship between bass and guitar is illustrated exactly as it should be, what brings thing together. The mythos of MF’s world is keeping me enthralled, describing a world I’ve never known but as a metalhead has been there my whole life. The Heavy. This series is something I am very much certain I will rock with until its next phase in comic existence, the idea of musical warriors is just too good to go away, ever.

As I got older my friends used me as their comic encyclopedia for random trivia. Now, I show my daughter all the stories and characters that helped me through, and being able to share my views on that through reviews is one of my favorite privileges.
