Alice Cooper Returns To Comics

Master Alice reveals his plans to make a return to comic books in 2014. Read on…

Legendary rock star Alice Cooper will star in an upcoming comic book series from Dynamite, slated for release in 2014.

“We’re doing many cool things with Dynamite, beginning with a new comics series which I am very excited about.  I always say that the best thing about being in a comic book is that they draw you with great abs!” says Alice Cooper.  “Artistically, for me there is hardly a better medium.  There is so much you can do in the form of a comic that we’d never been able to do on stage.  It’s just a different way of storytelling, and it really has almost limitless possibilities.  We’re looking forward to stretching the existing boundaries of the comic medium again.  We have new stories to tell, but we’ll do it with the same theatrical, sinister sensibility that comes with the name ‘Alice Cooper’.  This is just the beginning!  Welcome to my NEW Nightmares!”

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 (The SandmanAmerican Gods,Coraline) and illustrated by Michael Zulli.  Cooper also contributed a story in the Treehouse of Horror comic in 1995, a Halloween-themed spin-off fromThe Simpsons.

“Alice Cooper’s on-stage persona, the ultimate shock rocker, is perfect for comic books,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite.  “From his comic book debut in Marvel Premiere to The Last Temptation by Neil Gaiman, I’ve enjoyed the appearances Alice has made in comics.  We are excited to develop captivating and hypnotic comic storylines that incorporate the Sinister Showman’s gothic flair and grandiose vision.  This is going to be one hell of a ride!”

  1. One of my favorite tv shows is “The Big Bang Theory” about a group of geeky scientists who, among other things, collect comic books and dress up as superheroes. There’s Superman, The Flash, Incredible Hulk, Batman, Wonder Woman and others. I’d like to see one of them dress up as super goth, Sinister Showman, Alice Cooper. I see a connection here……..

  2. Will this comic be part of the “Uncle Alice Presents” project? I’d be very interested to see that happen, especially the proposed TV series of the same name.

  3. I am really excited to read this.I have been an Alice Cooper fan,as long as I can remember.I have the original comic Alice started out in Marvels “Alice Cooper tales from the inside!’ There was only one issue and of course the 4 “Last teptation of Alice” series…I would like to see a more enduring series…maybe one where they can make Uncle Alice a caharacter,and perhaps the host in a “Tales from the Crypt” manner.Anyway…Cool!

  4. U speaking of ur up coming comic book makes me think of what my very soon to be ex husband did after the eating to shot me in my head the judge order him to take only his personal belongings and leave but, hell no what did he do? He took what meant the most to me my Alice Cooper collection cd’s,albums, Cooper comics, Me Alice book,the ridding crop I caught in Fort Wayne,Indiana, my Cooper cash,t shirts,hoodies,lunchbox,and my Cooper dolls I say I should make a new comic where Alice comes back and gets his revenge on his fans behalf for the soon to be ex husband taking the Cooper collection that didn’t belong to him. He really pissed me off taking my things like that and I told him I want then back and I will see him in court but, what’s my changes of getting back my most prized collection that had took me many years to build? Slim to none hu? Thought so. Luv ya Coop
