It is not news to most of you who know me that I am a HUGE Alice Cooper fan. I have seen the Coop in concert more times than I can remember and I have tickets to see him again this fall. I had heard that a new Alice Cooper comic was in the works, but now I have some official info.
Issue number 1 will be hitting the shelves in September of this year, just in time for Halloween (also, shortly before I see him again). The comic will be written by Joe Harris and illustrated by Eman Casallos. According to the article I read:
In the new series Cooper is portrayed as a rocker by day and “Lord of Nightmares” at night. He watched over us as we slept and delivered horrors to those who deserved it. But someone took that away from him, pushed him out of his realm and locked him away… but now he’s going to take it all back.

Alice is no stranger to the comic-book world. Neil Gaiman did a short comic series featuring Alice, which was inspired by Cooper’s The Last Temptation album (check out my reviews of those).
- Alice Cooper: The Last Temptation – Book I
- Alice Cooper: The Last Temptation – Book II
- Alice Cooper: The Last Temptation – Book III
I can’t wait for this. I will be putting my order in at the local comic store to ensure I get my hands on the first issue as soon as it come out.
