    Michael H. Price and Lamberto Alvarez Heavy Metal Vol. 15 #6 Splash Page Original Art (Heavy Metal Publ., 1992). Price seldom does a splash page without depicting plenty of surging water: Hence the term splash page. This rain-soaked gem opens the true-crime story "Payne's Inferno," about a car-bombing murder case in Depression-era Texas. The cruel scenario pivots on a depiction of killer-lawyer A.D. Payne as a soft-spoken but violent sort. Close observation will reveal an additional illustration hidden beneath the pasted-in title card -- a more realistic portrait of the badman. Some sticklers have wondered what a true-crime story has to do with the science-fiction magazine Heavy Metal -- well, now, there's scarcely any metal heavier than an exploding automobile. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Faint toning. Excellent condition. From the Michael H. Price/Cremo Studios Archive.
