Writer Joe Harris (SNOWFALL, X-Files) and artist Megan Hutchison (An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O’ the Wisp) will launch a new story arc in their ongoing series ROCKSTARS this August: Children of the Beast.
In ROCKSTARS #6, self-proclaimed “rock ‘n’ roll investigators” Jackie Mayer and Dorothy Buell uncover a sinister connection between an ‘80s metal legend and the hot, new shredding sensation Dani Dangerous.
“If there was ever a genre that fit the ROCKSTARS modus, ethos, and mythological mission statement, it’s metal,” said Harris. “And, with Children of the Beast, we’re tapping into some of my favorite tropes and subversive tendencies from the 1980’s to today, including backward masking, album cover mascots, horns throwing, head banging, hell-raising, unauthorized parking lot videotape and the most Satanic of panics the parents of America’s children could suffer. We’re going straight for jugular with this one!”
“Finally, I get to draw the dreams that I envisioned when I was a kid listening to metal albums before my parents got home,” said Hutchison.
ROCKSTARS #6 (Diamond code: JUN170790) hits comic shops Wednesday, August 16th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, July 24th.
