The Temple of Karvul

One of my favorite artists of the high-tide years of Heavy Metal was/is Paul Kirchner. He brought an underground-comix flavor to Euro-comix surrealism. I don't know if Kirchner was a fan of Fred Schrier, but this beautifully drawn little 3-pager is Schrieresque, and I mean that as a sincere compliment.

A variation on “You touched it last!”

Remember "The Bus"? I have a collection of that surreal little strip and refuse to part with it...

Indeed, this little story was a highlight of Heavy Metal. What most striked me in the story that the old man isn't aware that he too can walk away, just like the other bloke. Nobody forces him to stay,yet he is so conditioned in his behavior that he stays.

@Fredio--yes, that's it. I think many situations are like that.
