''French Bedsheet-size, glossy colour comic-strip sf magazine launched January 1975 by Bernard Farkas, Jean-Pierre Dionnet and illustrators Jean Giraud and Philippe Druillet; published by Les Humanids Associes. Conceived as a high-quality showcase for the growing number of French sf artists, Mtal Hurlant was an instant success, combining many aspects of sf narrative with particular stress on the erotic, the grotesque and the horrific in illustrated form. Although it was accused of putting emphasis on graphics rather than content, its influence was notable throughout Europe and North America, and translations of its contents appeared in similar magazines in the USA (in particular Heavy Metal), Italy, Spain, Holland and elsewhere. Major contributors included Druillet, Giraud, Alexis (Dominique Valler, Enki Bilal, Vaughn Bod, Caza (Philippe Cazaumayou, Nicole Claveloux, Serge Clerc, Richard Corben, F'Murr (Richard Peyzaret, Jean-Claude Forest, Jean-Claude Gal, Dominique H, Jacques Lob, Sergio Macedo, Nikita Mandryka, Francis Mass, Jean-Claude Mzires, Rn Ptillon and Jacques Tardi. Quarterly from its inception, Mtal Hurlant became a monthly with no 9 (September 1976), at which time it began to carry a warning forbidding sale to minors. Mtal Hurlant also published a series of Hors Serie(specials) on themes such as the End of the World and H P Lovecraft'' (Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
