Hi, what are you looking for?


FOG! Exclusive! Read The First Chapter of The Upcoming Dark Horse TPB, ‘The Roadie’ by Tim Seeley and Fran Galan!

Next month, Dark Horse Books will release the first volume of The Roadie.  From the rocking creative team of writer Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Revival), artist Fran Galán (Lucky Devil), and letterer El Torres (Lucky Devil), the book collects issues #1-#4 of the horror-humor-rock and roll comic miniseries.

The Roadie is a horror saga about nostalgia, heavy metal music, hell, and redemption.

More than thirty years after his heyday, a former heavy metal roadie must return to the backroads of America to do a job he thought he’d retired from: demon fighter. But this time, he’s not saving 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,” Seeley said. “The roadies who supported all those metal bands, not only by tuning their guitars, but by casting out the horrific demons they accidentally summoned with backwards lyrics and screaming riffs. Joe D. is the seventh son of a seventh son, and though once he stood next to greatness, he now wallows in obscurity… until he gets called upon to return to a past he thought he’d left far behind.”

And thanks to our friends at Dark Horse, we’re proud to share the entire first issue of the original mini-series!

Rock on!

The Roadie trade paperback will arrive in comic shops May 17, 2023 and in bookstores May 30, 2023.

The 104-page volume is available for pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble,
and at your local comic book shop and bookstore, and will retail for $19.99.
