Heavy Metal, Winter 1987 issue. $10, magazine size, full color throughout.
A magazine with maybe the most famous highs and lows in periodical history. But the fact remains: any issue has work to please the most discerning comic fan. Combining contemporary European sci fi auteurs and American artists informed by Euro sci fi, this magazine inspired many generations of artists, and continues to do so today for anyone who encounters it used. Hard to go wrong with Heavy Metal, just enjoy it.
