by Erik Amaya
It’s no more Mr. Nice Guy when Alice Cooper takes on the ultimate adversary.
Dynamite Entertainment announced on Tuesday the forthcoming comic book, Alice Cooper vs. The Prince of Darkness, from writer Rodney Barnes, artist Edu Menna with Jason Shawn Alexander providing the main cover. “The Graphic Novel medium is perfect to give new angles to the fans,” Cooper said in a statement. “It’s just a great vehicle for storytelling, and it really has almost limitless possibilities. I had such a great experience with Dynamite on our last story, that I’m looking forward to working with them on more. We’re hoping to stretch the existing boundaries of the comic medium again, and doing it with the same theatrical, sinister sensibility that comes with the name ‘Alice Cooper.’ What else can I say but Welcome to my new nightmares!”
Although details on the plot are scared, Barnes said he was excited to “see how the fans react to Alice facing his most powerful opponent to date.”
Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci added, “Alice Cooper is a living legend, who has not only been a trendsetter, but has inspired musicians the world over … It’s a great series, and we can’t wait for fans to read it.” Stuart Sayger and Andrew Mangum will also provided covers.
Additional details about the comic’s release are expected to follow soon.
