For Halloween, I was looking for something simple, short and a little horror related to feature...
...and I hit upon the bright idea of featuring comics with Alice Cooper, feeling that he's quite worthy of focus....
...and then the horror began, because there are quite a few comics featuring the greatest villain of rock and roll!
From the Inside
The Last Temptation
The comics were written by Neil Gaiman (author of DC's Sandman and a few episodes of Doctor Who) and interior art by Michael Zulli, with covers by Dave McKean.
The issues came out cover dated May, August and December of 1994...and the album came out in July.
The story (and album) revolve around Steven, the usual protagonist of Alice Cooper, facing off against a mysterious showman giving the boy twisted visions of his life as he tried to get Steven to join his road show where the boy would never grow up...
...and become "Lost In America".
The series was collected by Marvel in 1995, and by Dark Horse Comics in 2000 and 2005, and very recently by Dynamite in 2014!
Welcome to Alice's Nightmare
This time, it's by Bluewater Comics (home of comics about William Shatner, Adam West, Vincent Price and more)...and written by Michael Frizell and interior and regular cover art by Jayfi Hashim. "School's Out" on whether you'll like these..."and I hope I didn't scare ya..."
