COVER E: Corey Steger - 'Tribute': James Sims (Artist)
HEIRS OF ISILDUR 'Nightmare Scenario' is the perfect bridge episode that links The Crossroads Conundrum to the upcoming story arc The Perilous Prospects.
This issue will answer the biggest cliffhanger from THE CROSSROADS CONUNDRUM: Is main character Mykal Isildur alive, did he perish, or is he somewhere in between?
It will also set up who the players will (and won't) be in The Perilous Prospects.
This 28 page standalone special issue also contains all the lyrics and explanations for the songs on the HEIRS OF ISILDUR vs TALES FROM NOCTURNIA metal album.
About the 'Tribute' cover: Corey Steger passed away in an innocent and tragic fashion on 3.17.21, shortly after recording for our upcoming album. Corey had a role with HEIRS since its inception, and so we knew we needed to honor him - in our own way.
His ‘Guitar Throne’ contains many of the axes he used over the years, from UNDEROATH to ARCHER to SOLO PROJECTS and finally with us.
The red guitar he holds (aka the 'bubblegum express') was one of his least ‘metal’, but there are more solos on HEIRS recordings using it than any other. We also made sure to include some small, hidden details that were unique to him.
