Heavy Metal Magazine cover art
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.
Just a quick question, if you don’t mind. I set this one up as a Gallery. Do you prefer the single pics layout or the Gallery layout?
ooooooooohh – I like the “gallery” look – I love these. I used to have all of the issues where Earl Norem did the cover art. I wonder where those are…
not familiar with his work. gonna check it out.
I like the gallery look as well.
ok cool beans. I don’t know why I don’t use this more.
Gallery makes it easier to look at all of the covers.
thanks for the input Jeff. I may go and change the other posts.
I agree, the gallery look is definitely better!
The artwork of Boris and Royo do stand out, don’t they?
Hey Lovina! Glad you could stop by. Boris had so much undercolor in his skin tones, its amazing, the skin looks so real. And Royo had a real spark of life in the eyes of his paintings.
