The biographical comic book company will be collecting and reprinting the early 90’s Rock N’ Roll Comics series, with the second volume all about The Beatles!
If you were both a comic book collector and a fan of hard rock in the early nineties, you probably remember Rock N’ Roll Comics, the comic books series that presented biographies of hard rock bands like Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Black Sabbath/Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, Poison, Van Halen, Black Crowes, Motorhead, Pantera, Megadeth, Sammy Hagar, Anthrax, Joan Jett/Lita Ford and Skid Row!
These comics may be hard to find today, but Bluewater Comics, the company that has produced biographies of such political icons as Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, and Ted Kennedy, as well as notable women in its Female Force line such as Oprah Winfrey, J. K. Rowling, and Princess Diana, will be collecting and reprinting the Rock N’ Roll Comics series in a series of 10 bi-monthly graphic novels, each focusing on a particular artist or genre.
The first volume will feature the above mentioned Hard Rock bands, while the second volume will focus solely on the Fab Four. The graphic novels will begin shipping in December, and will range from 150 to 300 pages. In special cases where major events have occurred for the band since the original comic was printed, Bluewater will be adding a special epilogue. The suggested retail price for the novels is $17.99.
