FIRST LOOK: CHECK OUT THE 'HARD ROCK HEROES' COVER FEATURING OZZY OSBOURNE, SLASH, AND MORE!
Last month, Bluewater Productions released plans to re-publish "Rock 'N' Roll Comics" in a series of 10 bi-monthly graphic novels that will feature the likes of The Beatles and several other famous musicians.
The first volume, "Hard Rock Heroes," is comprised by several biographical comics focusing on Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath and other heavy-rocking bands. Thanks to Bluewater, we're bringing you an exclusive first look at the cover for "Hard Rock Heroes," which ships to stores in February 2010.
What goes together better than comics and rock music? With almost 300 pages of Rock 'N' Roll Comics, Hard Rock Heroes goes WAY beyond Behind the Music, to tell the real life, behind-the-scenes stories of rock’s most heavy hitters. Creators include Stuart Immonen (Superman: End of the Century), Ken Landgraf (Wolverine), Jay Allen Sanford (Overheard in San Diego), Todd Loren (Beatles Experience), Scott Pentzer (Razor), Mike Sagara (Ninja High School), and many others. Covering bands like Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, Motley Crue, Poison, Megadeth, Pantera, Anthrax, Motorhead, Sammy Hagar, and more!
Hard Rock Heroes is a book-length pictorial history, covering bands like Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, Motley Crue, Poison, Megadeth, Pantera, Anthrax, Motorhead, Sammy Hagar, and more. The cinematic stories are realistically drawn, researched from countless photo and video archives, with an encyclopedic eye toward visual accuracy, dramatic flair, and journalistic depth.
Also includes the never-before published “missing” Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics #8 from 1990, on Skid Row. The lack of an eighth issue has vexed collectors and catalogers for years – exactly 20 years later, the story can finally be told, and collectors can finally own ALL the Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics!
As a bonus treat, Hard Rock Heroes also features the Motley Crue comic story from their official box CD set Music To Crash Your Car To II, released in 2004 and written and drawn by original Rock 'N' Roll Comics creators Lyndal Ferguson and Larry Nadolsky.
