Image Comics will carry on its musical mystery series Rockstars, from writer Joe Harris (Snowfall, X-Files) and artist Megan Hutchison (An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O’ the Wisp). The series will continue with Rockstars #6 in its new story arc, “Children of the Beast.”
In Rockstars #6, self-proclaimed “rock ‘n’ roll investigators” Jackie Mayer and Dorothy Buell uncover a sinister connection between a ‘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 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 the 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 opens its act in comic shops on Wednesday, August 16th.
