'Heavy Metal' magazine September 1980

The September 1980 issue of 'Heavy Metal' featured 'It Came from Mount Saint Helens' by Robert Adragna on the front cover, and 'Who's the Fairest of Them All ?' by Berni Wrightson on the back cover.

Ongoing installments of Ribera and Godard's 'The Alchemist Supreme', Bilal's 'Progress', and Duillet's 'Salammbo'  dominated this issue. Other noteworthy material  included Kirchner's outstanding 'Shaman', which I will be posting later this month, and the amusing strip 'Into the Breach' by Shirley and Duranona.

I've posted the Salammbo strip below. In this episode Loan Sloane, obsessed with Salammbo and determined to risk his ship's safety in order to rondezvous with her, deals with a rebellious crew in rather abrupt fashion.....
