Rock N Roll Comics
One of the few independent comics I bought during the early 90's was Revolutionary's Rock N Roll comics. It combined two of my main interests, rock music and comics. The Grand Comic Book Database doesn't have a lot of info on this series, other than it lasted 65 issues from 1989-1993. The series featured such artists as U2, The Rolling Stones, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Alice Cooper, Living Color, Rush, and Def Lepard. The stories usually covered the history of the bands featured. Unfortunately, they weren't real accurate most of the time. The art was OK. Some bands were portrayed pretty accurately while others weren't. It's not a great series by any stretch of the imagination, but I still kind of like it. Some of these artists' stories would make pretty good comics. Maybe someday another publisher will try their hand at adapting them in comics form.
