Heavy Metal Magazine Discovers Jozef Szekeres

Last year, out of the blue, I was asked by Heavy Metal to supply artwork for a gallery feature on my work. I've been a fan of Heavy Metal since I was a child, and consider it the preeminent arts/comics magazine. So to be featured like this is certainly a wish fulfillment. Please do pick up the March 2009 copy and check it out.

Wow! Congratulations, sounds great!
I am assuming that 'Heavy Metal' is an USA magazine? I havent seen it in Australia.

Heavy Metal magazine is a USA publication. It's owned by the co-creator of "The Teenage Mutant Nignja Turtles" Kevin Eastman. The magazine dates back to April 1977, so it has the proven staying power and is a significant Fantasy/Sci-fi/Comics/Art magazine.

You can purchase copies in Sydney Australia from Kings Comics, and Comic Kingdom. It should also be available in comics shops Australia wild. I have also seen Heavy Metal magazine distributed by Gordon and Gotch in newsagencies.

Thank you for the congratulation, I hope you can get a copy of the magazine. The gallery is several pages long, so there is more of my art on show then what is previewed on the one page shown here on our blog.
