The world of comics fans who also love larger-than-life horror rock acts from the 1970s (so everyone who read Kiss: Psycho Circus) was abuzz upon news of a new Dynamite Entertainment Alice Cooper comic series by writer Joe Harris (The X-Files), artist Eman Casallos (The Ninjettes) and cover artist David Mack (Kabuki).

Dynamite's description of the new series, which launches in September, touts it as the story of Cooper's secret role as "The Lord of Nightmares." He's apparently been locked out of his kingdom by a usurper and is struggling to regain his title. That sounds pretty cool, but does it really encompass all that is Alice Cooper? We don't think so. Here are some other aspects of Cooper we hope to see in the comic's pages.
