LOS ANGELES, CA, February 16, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As the sun sets on February the 14th, there is still time to gift that special someone what they really wanted: a dark and digital twist on the story of St. Valentine, sure to make them "scream!" Heavy Metal and Everscapes introduce a special hyper-limited collection of NFT's created in partnership with writers David Arquette (Scream) and Cliff Dorfman (Entourage), with art by Bernard Chang (Teen Titans, X-Men). Featured in Heavy Metal Magazine #313, Valentine is a one-time collection released in five parts, with a special exclusive bonus NFT, unseen and unavailable elsewhere, including the story itself!
The story's cowriters commented "We heard two stories that always stuck in our heads. One was about an emperor in Rome who banned marriage because recruitment in the army was down and they were losing wars, so he essentially banned love. Additionally, we were always fascinated with the fact that St. Valentine was brutally executed, ending with his head chopped off because of his defiance of this order. Yet, we celebrate this holiday based on his name as if it's the cutest, sweetest little holiday with hearts and candies and flowers; but let's face it, love is brutal."
Can love save the day? One priest not only believes it will, but that even death can't defeat it! He defies an emperor's attempt to ban love and marriage, ends up on the execution block, only to find himself thrust into the future with a second chance to save humanity, in the name of love. In a time where past and future collide, Heavy Metal gives its very own take on the Saint Valentine legend.
