In celebration of the release of “Helldiver”, the first book in the epic graphic novel series The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Heavy Metal Magazine invites artists to submit their original artwork or photography displaying their vision of Pestilence.
The three-book series is written by Michael Mendheim and illustrated by Simon Bisley. Check out the cover art for “Helldiver” and a video trailer below. Parts 2 and 3 are entitled “The Chosen” and “End of Days,” respectively.
Kevin Eastman, owner and publisher of Heavy Metal Magazine, asks “What’s Your Vision of Pestilence?” The Top 10 Finalists will have the honor of their artwork celebrated in Heavy Metal Magazine’s 35th anniversary issue and receive a subscription to Heavy Metal Magazine with the grand prize winner also taking home an original, signed Simon Bisley painting of Pestilence!
The contest is simple. Submit your vision of Pestilence through original artwork or photography from March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day) through April 28th, 2012 at The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Facebook contest page. The Top 10 Finalists will be chosen by Simon Bisley, Kevin Eastman, Dave Elliot, and Michael Mendheim. The grand prize winner will be chosen from the Top 10 Finalists by Facebook fan votes.
The Pestilence Art Contest is just one of many promotions celebrating the launch of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse graphic novel series with “Helldiver” hitting shelves April 13th, 2012, as well as the 35th Anniversary of Heavy Metal Magazine.

The End is Here – Welcome to the Apocalypse! Raised by the Order of Solomon, Adam Cahill is one of a rare handful of highly trained warriors bound by bloodline to guard the Seven Holy Seals that contain the End of Days. But ageless forces have conspired toward a prophetic event foretold by numerous cultures and multiple religions, and when that cryptic date arrives, they strike against the order without mercy! Adam’s world is shattered, his family murdered, and he is sent spiraling into Hell itself. There, he must find three corrupt souls, chosen by Divinity, to join him in battle against the legendary Horsemen of the Apocalypse. These broken individuals must band together to not only save their own souls but decide the fate of Humanity.
