This is part one of a long series on both Metal Hurlant and Heavy Metal illustrated science fiction and fantasy magazines.
A few years before Heavy Metal illustrated science fiction and fantasy magazine hit the stands to worldwide acclaim, it’s mother, Metal Hurlant would shake the rafters in a revolutonary new approach to comic books and illustrated magazines.
Metal Hurlant was formed in France in 1974 by Moebius, Druillet, Dionnet, and Farkas aka Les Humanoides Associes. Two years later, National Lampoon would publish Heavy Metal magazine which more or less reprinted the comic book stories from Metal Hurlant. We take a good look at the new 290 page illustrated book “Metal Hurlant 1975 – 1984” the prime early years of the magazine featuring art by Moebius, Druillet, Caza, Claveloux, Bode, and stories by Dan O’Bannon, Dionnet, and more.
