The Image Comics series Rockstars is getting a trade edition this June. Written by Joe Harris (Snowfall, X-Files) and mega-talented artist Megan Hutchison (An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O’ the Wisp), the series combines music, of course, and mystery elements to weave a vibrant and stylish story, colored by the fabulous Kelly Fitzpatrick.
The mystery in the story focuses on a series of unsolved “groupie murders” in the 1970’s and is set in Los Angeles where a “rock nerd” and perhaps some unusual abilities of her own, begins to put two and two together. Teaming up with a music writer and their cat, she stumbles upon a conspiracy, black magic, and even darker sacrifices to the “gods of rock”.
Rockstars Volume 1: Nativity in Blacklight (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0190-0, Diamond code: MAR170832) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, June 14th and bookstores Tuesday, June 20th.
The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 1st.
