Unlike much of his recent work, the series won’t be a dystopian story. “It’s essentially a rock-and-roll thriller set against a magical backdrop,” he explained, adding that it will read like “‘Almost Famous’ meets ‘Supernatural'” as the protagonist investigates rock and roll mythology.
“It’s a story I’ve wanted to tell since I was a little kid,” Harris said. “The majesty of rock and roll, particularly it’s ’70s heyday, is which this series is going to take its root. The plan is for each story arc to center on a different era of rock history, from British Invasion to ’80s metal.”
“Rockstars” is slated to debut in the fall. Read a preview right now on CBR.
