Ah, those. Bah. Where I come from, those were School Study Media
. I read my first Métal Hurlant issue at age twelve
; it involved a guy descending on a pterodactyl on some other guy who had a hot wife, murdering him, going to shag the hot wife, only to find that she had an incredibly ugly face, and leave.
And then there was that super Shoot the Shaggy Dog
story about an Ark that survived a Class X Apocalypse How
but did not contain a single living thing. It was hauntingly beautiful.
Métal Hurlant was awesome in the original sense of the word.
Anyway, yeah, their Gorn is very different from Dark Age US Gorn: the former is very detached and matter-of-fact, as if they were challenging the reader to object to what's going on, while the latter is very spectacular and focused-upon, as if they were encouraging the reader to revel in it.
Either would be problematic to adapt to video games, unless you adopt an Amnesia: The Dark Descent
approach, and even then...
