Black Metal, by Rick Spears & Chuck BB

First there was black.
Then there was metal.
Then there was Black Metal, a wee graphic novel following the adventures of twin brothers Shawn and Sam Stronghand, black metal enthusiasts and junior high inmates. Good clean fun as black metal meets suburbia, and the narrative rockets the duo along pretty rapidly to the inevitable battle to reclaim their birthright... in HELL!

This is something Dr. Pookie picked up at the recent estate sale. A quick read with a few good laughs, and a metric trebuchet-ful of blackness, metalness, spikes, and reanimate skeletons.
