Any opinions on Heavy Metal magazine?
I got a few issues years ago because the covers interested me, but the price and the fact I wasn't really into comics at the time didn't lead me to get any more. Now, I notice they're having a deal on subscription rates ($20 or so for a year and $10 per year afterwards and shit)....should I splurge? Does anybody read the magazine?
If you're going to splurge on a general- humor- with- small- comics magazine, you're better off sticking to MAD. Heavy Metal is a mixed bag at BEST. Although the art often kick ass. But are you getting a subscription for something to read, or for some good comic-style drawings and paintings? The stories in Heavy Metal always seemed lacking (although I did like the FIRST movie)
