Welcome back to another installment of Heavy Metal Monday, a new series here on Doom Cycle which features my scans from the first 10 years of Heavy Metal Magazine. Each episode is guaranteed to blow your mind with a barrage of killer artwork from all over the globe. Though you won’t see complete stories, you will find rad panels, full pages, back covers, and some cool ads. It’s going to be a killer trip so make sure to stop by whenever you see a new episode announced.
This week I’ve got some rad stuff for ya! First up is a gorgeous page out of Moebius’ “Ballade”, followed by a tripped out page from “The Bird of Dust” by the mighty Caza and writer Bazolli. Each of these stories are EPIC so it would be worth your while to track them down.
Next up is an ad for the mail order catalog Krupp, which carried underground classics Snatch and Slow Death. A page from “Master” by the always satisfyingly bizarre Nicollet will fuck with your head, while an excerpt from “Polonius”, written by Picaret and illustrated by Tardi, drops us into a really cool story that’s been going on for a few issues now.
Closing us out this time is the November ’77 back cover by Tom Barber, followed by a seriously epic double-page pulled from EE Davis’ “World Apart”. Man, I can’t get enough of that series right now. It fucking rules!
See ya next time!
