The story is set to later appear in Glenat’s French language collection of Liberatore’s short comics in July.
Ai Shiteru focuses on a somewhat dangerous man and his unhealthy obsession with a Japanese taxi dancer.
Liberatore, a personal favorite of Heavy Metal’s editor-in-chief, Grant Morrison, is excited to be returning to the magazine that first brought him recognition in America. “When I met met with him at his studio in Paris last December, he showed me the story while in progress and I knew it was a perfect time fit for the magazine”, said Heavy Metal co-CEO, Jeff Krelitz.
Heavy Metal Magazine introduced Liberatore to the English-speaking world in July 1983 with the creator’s ultra-violent character, RanXerox, so it is fitting they are the ones to celebrate his return.
