SDCC 2013: Alice Cooper Comics
A man who knows how to tell a story through art, legendary rocker Alice Cooper is teaming up with Dynamite for an upcoming comic book series, slated for release in 2014.
Renowned as the “Godfather of Shock Rock”, Alice Cooper is an icon of rock ‘n roll with a career spanning five decades. A Detroit native, Cooper has released 26 albums over the course of his illustrious career, and maintains a reputation as one of the most theatrical live performers in history, often incorporating elaborate horror movie and vaudeville sensibilities into his stage shows. In addition to his musical career, he is an avid golfer, film actor, restaurateur, and radio DJ.
Alice Cooper has been a subject and contributor to comic books over the years, first appearing as the centerpiece of a 1972 issue of Marvel Premiere. As a companion to his 1994 concept album The Last Temptation, Cooper released a graphic novel of the same name, written by bestselling and critically acclaimed author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Michael Zulli. Cooper also contributed a story in the Treehouse of Horror comic in 1995, a Halloween-themed spin-off from The Simpsons.
