About the Helm
The Helm is the tale of a lazy video store clerk who finds a magic helmet at a garage sale and is thrust into the job of defending the world against evil. And it's funny. It's an ironic spin on the "destiny" genre that teams veteran artist Bart Sears with comics newcomer Jim Hardison.
