This is a stand-alone issue done by a different writer and artist (Joe Harris and Eman Casallos did the first five issues). I loved it, but it is definitely a niche comic. If you are not an Alice Cooper fan, you are probably not going to enjoy this much. The premise is that Alice is doing a tour through the Nightmare Place but is plagued by a specter, who is some kind of psychotic clown demon seeking to shatter Alice’s sanity. There are definite allusions to Cooper’s “From the Inside” album, which I think is a nice touch. But again, if you are not a Cooper fan, then this would mean nothing to you.
I do not know if this comic is going to continue. There is a sense of finality about it, and there is no mention of an issue 7. I suppose all dark things must come to an end. I’ll inquire next time I visit my local comic store.
Happy nightmares, and keep on reading!

I had no idea there was such a thing as an Alice Cooper comic. He was my first rock concert.
What a great first concert! I’ve seen him more times than I can remember. He is always great on stage. This is actually the third Alice Cooper comic series. It’s very good, but I recommend the one done my Neil Gaiman. It was only three issues but AWESOME!! In fact, they have just released an omnibus compilation of all the issues which includes storyboards, sketches, and letters between Alice and Neil. I highly recommend it.
