Posers have been a problem since the dawn of time.
They continue to be a problem today. Some even run blogs.
To prove that metalheads have been dealing with posers for decades, go here.
That’s where you will find a rare 1985 Exodus comic book called “Slay Team.”
Created by Lizzy Green, a member of Exodus’ inner circle during the pioneering Bonded By Blood days, this lengthy black-and-white book portrays members of the band as they murder hair-metal posers who dare spread falseness instead of relentless metal mania.
“Our singer’s ex-girlfriend was a really good cartoonist, and she drew up these comics that showed us knifing and beating up Motley Crue clones,” Gary Holt once recalled in an interview. “We were constantly drinking and chain-sawing and jack-hammering people to death. They were just for our own amusement, and then it spread off to our fans in the local club scene.”
The comic is called “Slay Team: The Poser Wars,” and again, can be read in full here.
