In search of the iconographic roots of ruin illustrations I passed through a lot of editions of Heavy Metal Magazine – started in 1977. Soon I noticed that in the first years not much is to be found. But then in the 1990s ruins started to become fashionable.
Today a combination well armed half naked warrior women with ruins seems to be the climax of comic art.
