If the figures were drawn in a more grotesque manner, I would have believed that this was something from Boucq. The punchline is that the eskimo gives him an intemized bill for his stay and the sex is on it. Ha ha.

The best part of this page is the obvious editing in the middle tier to ensure that the oral sex is covered up. That looks like the Photoshop clone tool, unless I miss my guess.

This is the quality sexually related entertainment that I’m here for. I’m going to be sad when this feature goes away.

Eastman’s use of “” around titles will never stop bothering me. The response to the last letter is pretty interesting as well, but I don’t feel like it really answered the question.

Today we pause for a quick introduction. My name is RM Rhodes. I started rereading my father’s Heavy Metal collection (that’s him at the top) in 2011. Somewhere in the mid-90s, his collection ended and mine picked up. I now have a complete run and I plan to read and post until I get there. At the current rate, it should take about four more years.

The format is locked and loaded and will not change – I read an issue, scan twelve pages, and post them, one a day with commentary. This blog used to be on Tumblr, but moved when the posts started getting flagged as adult material. So it goes.

Over the years, I’ve written a number of articles on Heavy Metal. I recently discovered that there was another article written about this blog from 2016. If you see any others, send them in my direction.
