To Defend -- This Is The Pact: Taarna Art (Artists A-M)

Call me crazy ("You're crazy!"), but one of my favorite movies of all time is the 1981 animated classic HEAVY METAL, and in particular, the "Taarna" sequence (directed by future special effects maven John Bruno) that comprises the final third of the film's running time. Based on the ARZACH stories by the great French artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud, the segment features visual designs by such talents as Chris Achilleos, Howard Chaykin, and Michael Ploog. This gallery is my tribute to the mysterious, silent, and beautiful Taarakian defender.
