The Story of Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics charts the short and controversial life of publisher Todd Loren, whose scandalous series of unauthorized comic book biographies of rock stars enraged and sometimes charmed his subjects, provoked numerous lawsuit threats from the likes of Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses and Skid Row, and eventually led to a landmark First Amendment case, all before he was savagely murdered in 1992. Includes first hand accounts from many of the artists and writers who were inspired and exploited by Loren, along with interviews with Alice Cooper, Mojo Nixon and more.The directorial debut from filmmaker Ilko Davidov, this documentary examines the life and death of Todd Loren, who gained both acclaim and ridicule for publishing his controversial Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics before being murdered in 1992. Using interviews with the likes of Alice Cooper and Mojo Nixon as well as home-movie footage of Loren, Davidov attempts to shed some light on Loren’s mystery-shrouded slaying.
