''glossy letter-size US colour comic-strip magazine inspired by the French magazine Métal Hurlant and initially reprinting English-language versions of mainly sf and fantasy material from this and other French, Italian and Spanish sources alongside similar matter by select US contributors. Published monthly April 1977 - December 1985, quarterly from the Winter (i.e., January) 1986 issue and then bi-monthly from March 1989, Heavy Metal built a reputation for high quality in both presentation and content; Heavy Metal's list of contributors reads like a roster of the world's best artists and writers of comic-strip sf, and the following is only a selection: Enki Bilal, Vaughn Bodé, Caza, Howard V Chaykin, Richard Corben, Guido Crepax, Philippe Druillet, Fernando Fernandez, Juan Giminez, Jean Giraud (Moebius), Matt Howarth, Jeff Jones, Rod Kierkegaard, Tanino Liberatore, Milo Manara, Georges Pichard, José Ribera, Aleuteri Serpieri, Jacques Tardi, Daniel Torres and Bernie Wrightson'' (Ron Timer & Jphn Platt/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
