Dark Horse Comics is proud to present the new dark horror action series Roadien. From creators Tim Seeley (The occultist, Hack / Slash, Resuscitation) and Fran Galan (Lucky Devil) comes this horror saga of nostalgia, heavy metal music, hell and redemption.
More than thirty-five years after his heyday, a former heavy metal roadie must return to America’s backstory to perform a job he thought he had retired from: exorcist. But this time, he does not save groupies and drunk bassists. He’s trying to save his daughter.
“I wanted to tell the story of the ‘unsung hero’ of the 80s Satanic Panic era …,” says Tim Seeley, “roadies who supported all those metal bands, not only by tuning their guitars, but by expelling the terrible demons they summoned by accident with backwards lyrics and screaming riffs.Joe D. is the seventh son of a seventh son, and even though he once stood next to greatness, he now revels in obscurity …. until he being urged to return to a past he thought he had gone far back. THE ROAD is a part Hack / Slashpart Resuscitationand the whole heart, with Fran Galan making some absolute rockin ‘art. “
Roadie # 1 will be in comic book stores on September 28, 2022 and can be pre-ordered at your local comic book store for $ 3.99.
