This is a Grail Page for me. I grew up reading Heavy Metal magazine and whenever I think of HM today I think of this page, Richard Corben, HR Giger , and Enki Bilal. In that order.
I'm a big fan of Leif Peng's Today's Inspiration which recently ran a great article about Luis Garcia Mozos . In doing a bit of poking around I discovered he was the artist of this page which has always been stuck in my head. A bit more poking around lead me to his Facebook site. Amazingly enough this page, which he drew in 1981 was still available. Let's not even mention that it is page 33, the age I was when I met my wife, or the fact that 3 has always been my favorite number. Let's not even bring that up because that sounds an awful lot like fate to me.
To see a scan of this simply does not do it justice so I will post some detail shots soon.

Deadlines got you down? Noodling too much? Mix it up with Wally's 22 panels. Of course his motto was also "Never draw anything you can copy, never copy anything you can trace, never trace anything you can cut out and paste." I'm not sure I agree with all of that all of the time but a deadline is a deadline. Image courtesy of this site.
