Joe Harris and Megan Hutchison kick off a new story arc in their ongoing series, Rockstars, from Image Comics. The arc is titled, Children of 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 in a press release from Image Comics. “And, with Children of the Beast, we’re tapping into some of my favorite tropes and subversive tendencies from the 1980s 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 is scheduled to arrive in stores on August 16, 2017.
