Heavy Metal Magazine, July 1978 issue.
''Glossy bedsheet-size US colour comic-strip magazine inspired by the French magazine METAL HURLANT and 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 Apr 1977 - Dec 1985, quarterly from the Winter (i.e., January) 1986 issue and then bimonthly from Mar 1989, Heavy Metal has built a reputation for high quality in both presentation and content. Monthly issues carried serialized material in episodes of varying length, causing an often uncomfortable segmentation of some stories. The 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 Bode, Caza, Howard V. Chaykin, Richard Corben, Guido Crepax, Philippe Druillet, Fernando Fernandez, Juan Giminez, Jean Giraud (Moebius), Jeff Jones, Rod Kierkegaard, Tanino Liberatore, Milo Manara, Georges Pichard, Jose Ribera, Aleuteri Serpieri, Jacques Tardi, Daniel Torres and Berni Wrightson'' (Ron Tiner/Encyclopedia of SF).
