The latest issue of Revolver magazine is a “Fallen Heroes Of Hard Rock and Metal” tribute to several late musicians, like Ronnie James Dio and Peter Steele, both of whom passed away in 2010. The issue has special cover artwork by legendary comics artist J.G. Jones.
Gracing the cover along with Dio and Steele are Paul Gray (Slipnot), The Rev (Avenged Sevenfold), Dimebag Darrell (Pantera), Cliff Burton (Metallica), Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne), Freddy Mercury (Queen), and Layne Staley (Alice In Chains).
The cover painting also appears inside the magazine as a free poster. Check out the cover image here at right (click for larger, full view).
The issue is on newsstands now, but you can also purchase it online for $19.95, which includes a commemorative limited-edition 1 3/4″â€“diameter Dimebag Darrell â€œdimeâ€ along with an antiqued metal coin holder. (This is the only way to get the coin and holder, aside from at Barnes & Noble stores.) A portion of the proceeds will go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout cancer fund.
Jones is known for his amazing cover artwork on many popular comic book series, including all 52 issues of DC Comics’ event series 52.
