DCU in 2011: Scott Ian and Sam Kieth take on THE DEMON

kiethdemon Metal fans will recognize Scott Ian as the guitarist from the legendary band Anthrax and comics fans will recognize him as the writer of last year's LOBO: HIGHWAY TO HELL. Between releasing "Ironiclast", the debut album of his newest band, The Damned Things (which features members of Anthrax, Fall Out Boy and Every Time I Die), just last month and launching a nationwide tour on January 19th, the busy musician and writer is announcing that he's writing a new miniseries starring Etrigan, The Demon, with his LOBO collaborator Sam Kieth on art duties, which'll hit comic shops later this year. Scott had a few words to say about the new series:
Holy crap I am excited to be writing The Demon for DC in 2011! I've been a fan of Etrigan since I was kid buying comics off of the racks. Jack Kirby created him for Hell's sake and now I get to spew Hellfire like it's never been spewed before. And I get to blow up Las Vegas. It's going to be a real vulgar display of power (pun intended). Thanks DC for sending me to Hell and back! -Scott Ian
