Highway to Hell

"Better to sing lead in Hell than sing backup in Heaven!"

This is a series I really want to get going in 2008. Each adventure is 8-16 pages, and each includes fast cars, demons, and plenty of fun stuff to draw.

The series contains a lot of humor and rock parody, but plays with some philosophical points. What would you do if you knew -- had actually met -- someone who'd been to Hell?

The Cast

Dirk Del Rio Dirk Del Rio lived a life of sex, drugs and rock 'n roll -- until all three came together on a lonely stretch of Michigan highway. Resurrected by the love of one true fan, Dirk must save his soul -- before the Devil can drag him back to Hell!
Earl Unteid A local mechanic and Dirk Del Rio's No. 1 fan, keeper of Dirk's sacred GTO, wielder of the Magic Pistol of Elvis. His hero's death makes Earl rethink some of his own priorities.
The Devil The motherfucking prince of darkness. But he's got a bitchin' van.
