I was a big fan of Heavy Metal, and used to get it on a regular basis. I tried to search online for a particular story but haven’t been successful; I’m looking for the title and author.
In a fantasy forest setting, a male figure (short, some type of anthropomorphic) and a female fairy creature are having a conversation. They are accompanied by a large flightless bird that carries one of them. They are walking through their forest, and make their way to the edge of the forest, where they decide to enter the golden fields beyond.
They see a strange ‘large beast’ approaching them, with a line of human figures to either side, and move to greet the new arrivals. Suddenly there is a perspective shift; a voice over panel describes the ‘new contact’ and the advancing military unit opens fire on the three, killing them. The tank reports back to base, and the strip ends.
What was this? I’m sure I have more questions about half-remembered stories from HM, but this one for now… can anyone name it?
