Tarnished Metal

The French-Belgian science fiction anthology series Métal Hurlant Chronicles debuted this week on the Syfy Channel. Phil Dyess-Nugent views the show as “the kind of thing that gives adolescent male power fantasies a boad name”:

“The producers have managed to isolate everything that’s gross and charmless about European fantasy comics as if they thought the beauty and kinetic energy of the artwork is what’s most disposable about them.”
