What Entropy Means to Me

Here’s the official description of Entropy from Heavy Metal:

Breaking Bad meets Green Lantern in the origin story of Heavy Metal‘s ultimate supervillain!

Henry Hanks had a good life, until he betrayed KAKO, the living embodiment of chaos and misery!

With his whole world destroyed, Henry is killed and reborn as the newest herald of Kako, with the power to destroy entire worlds in his master’s name.
