V For Vendetta





V For Vendetta has got one of the most unique G.N.'s I ever read. Anarchy, violence and elements of horror are all combined in V to make an interesting read. No wonder why it was made into a motion picture.

Heavy Metal The Illustrated Fantasy Magazine









Heavy Metal is a cool, adult, sci-fi, fantasy comic magazine that features diff. stories every month with a little nudity here and there.

I saw the animated Heavy Metal movie in '81, one of my friends at that time was turned away because it may have been rated R. Great movie, great music, great comic magazine.
