Heavy Metal the movie (1981) is the reason I love hentai. It’s as simple as that.
I was born in 1978 and I heard about Heavy Metal from my step dad and had seen posters for it in the comic book store I frequented. Whenever I got the chance I would look through old issues of the Heavy Metal magazine my step dad had in the basement but I didn’t see the movie until one summer in the late 80’s. In fact, the first sex scenes I ever saw was the one with Harry Canyon and the big titted chick who’s dad was killed for the Loc-Nar. As awesome as that sex scene was it was Taarna that sent my puberty stricken mind spinning.
Since I grew up reading comics I was pretty used to being attracted to fictional characters like Wonder Woman but Taarna was different, she was the first character I lusted for (not knowing what that was back then). I have seen Heavy Metal the movie about 50 times over the course of my life, and have purchased the soundtrack 5 different times, and every time I see it I am still mesmerized by Taarna. There is just something about a strong female character that has white pubic hair that really turns me on. She will always hold a special place in my heart and probably without her, or the movie, I would not have the love for hentai that I do now.
I met Alicia Hollinger at comic book industry meet-and-great a couple weeks ago in Hollywood. I was admiring her pin-ups on the wall, specifically a Taarna pic she had created, and once we started talking I knew I wanted to feature her work on MPL Toons. Alicia was nice enough to make me this beautiful, and exclusive, Taarna piece for the site. I love the way it turned out, she really nailed the character’s confidence and strength as well as her sensuality.
