You know you’re an Artist when you create a title that others can’t read. The hell IS that? It’s like a tag you’d find on a wall somewhere.

Ever see Heavy Metal: The Movie? The Den story in that is basically this moment. In the film, you hear “OO-LA-TEC”, so it’s not clear that they’re chanting “Cthulhu” backwards, as it’s clear here. Or “Cthulu”, as they spell it above.
Yay! Birdie alive! All in a day’s work for Vague Mechanic Guy!
And that’s all the Heavy Metal we got… for NOW. Join us here on Wednesday for a new comics title!
