The Story of Rock ‘n’ Roll Comics Released on DVD 7 May


This review appears in the June issue of Clash Magazine.

This smart and slick docu examines the life and work of Todd Loren, whose series of unauthorised comic book biographies of famous rockers – including Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, Ozzy Osbourne, Guns n Roses, Led Zeppelin and Alice Cooper- alternately captivated and infuriated bands of the 80’s and early 90’s. The much sued Loren’s life and career ended dramatically in 1992, murdered in mysterious circumstances. Told in lively animated style, the film is an ideal introduction to an underground icon. Packed with extras and expert insight from artists, writers and rock legends, it is a welcome curiosity and testament to a life on the artistic fringes. Highly recommended.
