You may have seen the Heavy Metal movie from 1981 (or the remake in 2000). Or maybe you’ve been collecting the cutting-edge science fiction, fantasy, and horror comics magazine going back to its first issue in 1977.

Regardless, this brand has a storied history and has been the source material for incredible movies such as Blade Runner, The 5th Element, and more.

Today, these famous titles are coming to the Curio NFT marketplace (see previous blog post)

Heavy Metal is now dropping its iconic covers as NFTs for the first time ever on Curio.

This female-led collection highlights Heavy Metal’s biggest heroine, Taarna — majestically shown on Issue #300 by Glenn Fabry, which was just nominated for a prestigious Ringo Award in Best Presentation in Design — alongside Lex, the part-woman-part-machine on Heavy Metal Issue #301 by Isaac Escorza.

The other two covers are Taarna The Cosmic Gardener riding the lightning by comics master Butch Guice, and Issue #304 in a luminescent cover by Michal Suchanek
