Episode 322: The Story of Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics

This documentary charts the short and controversial life of publisher Todd Loren, whose scandalous series of unauthorized comic book biographies of rock stars enraged and sometimes charmed his subjects, provoked numerous lawsuit threats from the likes of Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses and Skid Row, and eventually led to a landmark First Amendment case, all before he was savagely murdered in 1992.

Music by The Melvins and Alabama Shakes

    Great show. I bought a few Rock N Roll comics back in the day. A novel idea but the art was horrendous. Definitely would watch a documentary on the subject though. Just for the record, the only good thing Bluewater produced was The Mis-Adventures of Adam West in my opinion Sold Gold:)

  1. Thanks for the shout out and I’m glad you liked Spellbound. Though, to date, I really think my best work has been in The Dead Weather
