Métal Hurlant (literal translation: "Howling Metal," "Screaming Metal") is a French comics anthology of science fiction and horror comics stories. Originally created in 1974, the anthologies ceased publication in 1987 but revived between 2002 and 2004 in multilingual editions, and then again in 2020.

Update 17/07/23: There will not be another version released for 1.5, all my focus will be dedicated to SDXL. I will train a better version there, with a bigger dataset, higher resolutions, and comprehensive captioning.

⚠️ CAUTION - Alpha Release⚠️

This version is experimental. It can handle portraits quite well but struggles with elaborate compositions containing multiple subjects. I'm working on a more complete version but I felt it was already able to output some good images, so still worth sharing if you're interested.

💥Showcase images 💥

Please note that the showcase images have been upscaled with Multidiffusion (adds sharpness) and lightly edited with Lightroom (enhances colours). You should still be able to get a resembling result by using the prompts provided, but it will not be of the same quality.
