Alice Cooper is returning to comic books this fall.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame shock rocker will be the subject of Dynamite Entertainment's new "Alice Cooper" series, which rolls out in September. The books will be written by "X-Files" veteran Joe Harris and drawn by Eman Casallos of "The Ninjettes" and "Jennifer Blood" fame and will portray Cooper as "the guardian of humanity's dreams."
In a statement, Cooper said that, "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 onstage. 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!"
Cooper is no stranger to comics, of course; he was part of the Marvel Comics Premiere series during the 70s as well as a 90s mini-series based on his album "The Last Temptation."
Cooper returns to the road Thursday (June 26) in Manistee, Mich., and plays three warm-up dates before joining Motley Crue as the special guest on its farewell tour, which stars July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich.
