Violence Becomes Tranquility

While I am slowly working on a post about covers, and on my review of #287, I want to to note that someone put up a Heavy Metal story from March 1980, Violence Becomes Tranquility, by Shinobu Kaze, and since it's such a wonderful example of the best work HM had to offer, I wanted to link it here:

Linked via The Bristol Board, a very nice and active collection of comic art through the years (apparently via a Morioh a few years back).


This has most everything I liked about HM in the early days, delightful art with terrific storytelling, that presented itself very well in comic form, and thought-provoking exploration of consciousness and reality.  Since most who have not seen this particular issue would not have seen this story, I thought I would promote it so others would have the chance.  Enjoy!
