When I was young I use to go into a bookstore named Bookstar to sneak a peek at the newest Heavy Metal magazine every couple of months. I loved the Art and stories because it took Science Fiction, Fantasy and horror art and pushed the boundaries. Was it sexual? Yes. Did it deal with themes that made some people uncomfortable? Yes. Did it deal with much more realistic concepts when thinking about Scifi, Fantasy and Horror? Yes.
Life can be really gritty and slimy and rough and real fantasy-themed art and stories should show this ugly underbelly as much as the wonderful and fantastic because without it we are missing the flip side of the coin and ignoring the dark side of life and the nature of life.
Love, Death + Robots pushes some boundaries and might make some people uncomfortable but I encourage you to check it out despite that. Some of the stories are better than others but this opening story Sonnie’s Edge is the personification of Heavy Metal to me. The beautiful animation and artistic imagery blow me away. It shows the dark underbelly. Be warned It has sexual themes and a lot of blood and gore.
