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.
