Marc Olivent’s stunning artwork and Jim McCarthy’s incisive script perfectly capture the rollercoaster tale of Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, Steve Adler and the many others who have passed through the Metallica story.
Jim McCarthy’s career in publishing began with 2000AD and work on Bad Company, Bix Barton, The Grudgefather, Kyd Cyborg and Judge Dredd.
