It’s a new year, and like clockwork we begin a new title for the Ash Ave Comic Book Club. We kick off 2018 with Mike Allred’s sci-fi rock n roll tribute Red Rocket 7, and then in February we’ll be reading the first volume of DC/Vertigo’s Hellblazer.
We will be meeting on Sunday, January 7 at 6PM to discuss Red Rocket 7, and per usual we recommend BYOB (be it beer, beverage, or BBQ). Below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of January’s title:
Sunday, January 7: Red Rocket 7
Sunday, February 4: Hellblazer TP Vol 1
This is the story of RED ROCKET SEVEN: The entire history of rock n roll as seen through the eyes of the seventh clone of a man from a distant world. RR7 rubs shoulders with every legend from the birth of rock in the ’50s, through the British invasion of the ’60s, through the advent of Heavy Metal and Glam rock in the ’70s, the New Wave of the ’80s, the Grunge Rock and Indie/Alt. scene in the ’90s, and into the new millennium! This special edition is busting out with special features, plus rare and new art.
Alternate Press Magazine called it, “The stuff of ultimate juvenile fantasy.” and “If this weren’t a comic, it’d be one of the greatest stories in modern rock history.”
Raygun Magazine said,” A magnum opus to popular music, with ALLRED presenting sly, yet loving explanations of some of rock’s greatest mysteries.”
