Just a handful of HM-related Bits I've come across in my wandering the desolate wasteland that was once my Heavy Metal Magazine fanboyhood. It's a cryin' shame what they did to my favorite mag (Medney and Erwin? Yeah, fuck those guys).
Oddly, traffic on my miserable blog is high, but it's mostly some robot that says it's from Singapore hitting it about a hundred times a day or more, randomly. Not a fan.
Ferran Xalabarder is still around. I found him selling art as of this year via his Fbook:
R.G. LLarena hasn't been a part of Heavy Metal for a couple years, but it appears he's still working. He would actually comment on my blog a bit way back when.
I did also notice that besides being on Twtr, Philippe Druillet is on Iggrm and also has a website, which is in French but still really cool. I figure to add to them the Links page on my little blog, along with a few others that are out there.
Anyway, here's hoping that, like me, anyone reading this has more to their lives than mourning the death of Heavy Metal Magazine, and perhaps some may enjoy my little stumbles across the wastes of the HeavyMetalpocalypse, searching for more traces of the mag's past existence. Every now and then I'll come across another Bit, and I'll post about some of them.
