Heavy Metal (magazine)
Initially, most of its material was translated comics from the French magazine Métal Hurlant (started in December 1974), including pieces by Enki Bilal, Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Moebius), and Phillippe Druillet ; and long-running serials by Richard Corben and Matt Howarth.
Heavy Metal's high quailty artwork is notable. Work by international fine artists such as H.R. Giger has been featured on their covers. Terrance Lindalls illustrated version of Milton's epic Paradise Lost appeared in the magazine in the late 1970s and is generally considered to be the greatest rendition of the poem done in the 20th century.
Some critics feel Heavy Metal's style and content is too violent and pornographic, and argue for protectively banning its sale to minors. Despite such objections, Heavy Metal's sale is not restricted to adults in the US.
