Heavy Metal Magazine, the adult-themed illustrated publication started in 1977.  It became very successful and continues to this day. It is full-color inside and out and features illustrated dark sci-fi and fantasy, combined with some light erotica. Its name has nothing to do with the music style. Gracing the covers you can find fantastic artwork from famous artists like, Giger, Frazetta, Boris, Rowena, and Royo.

OK, this is the final post in this series. Hope you all enjoyed it. It was enjoyable to me, to revisit some of the underground literature, pulp, magazines and comics that I grew up with.
