My childhood was seriously traumatized by a particular issue of Heavy Metal magazine. I remember it calling itself “the violence issue”. And boy oooo boy was this issue violent. I lived in Georgia at the time, we had it at school somehow and me and my goofball friends would pass it around and read it. I think at one point the teachers confiscated it because it was so freaky. I don’t blame them!
This would have been … around 1981-ish? I’m fuzzy on the exact time frame.
I browsed a bunch of Heavy Metal magazine covers and I can’t find it in that time range, unfortunately:
I have a torrent of a bunch of issues (all the issues?) and I’ll keep looking. I would have sworn it was Heavy Metal, I have no idea how 1981 me would obtain any kind of other magazine that Comix Violent around that time, if any such thing even existed.
Does anyone else remember such an issue of Heavy Metal? The Violence Issue?
