'The Clash: The Last Gang in Town'
('The Clash: El ultimo gang en la ciudad')
from issue 8 of Metal Hurlant (Spanish language edition), 1982

The European editions of  Metal Hurlant routinely featured content that never made it to the pages of Heavy Metal. One such story, produced by Serge Clerc in 1982, featured the New Wave rockers: the Clash (!)

It's not clear if the band gave Clerc permission to use them in a comic strip. But even if you are not fluent in Spanish, the strip comes across very well, and serves as an interesting look at the influence the band had on music culture and pop culture, back in those days.
