With “The Beatles: Rock Band” hitting shelves Tuesday, September 9, everyone’s been talking about the Fab Four these days. That means it’s the perfect time to bring you some exclusive news involving John, Paul, George and Ringo—as well as a host of other music icons.

Bluewater Productions, who previously published “Tribute: Michael Jackson, King of Pop,” has revealed to Splash Page that the early-’90s biography comic book series “Rock ‘N Roll Comics” will be collected in a new line of graphic novels published by Bluewater. As part of the partnership with the publishers of “Rock ‘N Roll Comics,” Revolutionary Comics, the line will be released as 10 bi-monthly graphic novels (150-300 pages), each focusing on a particular band, musical era or style.

The first volume, “Hard Rock Heroes,” will arrive in December and feature bios of Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Black Sabbath/Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, Poison, Van Halen, Black Crowes, Motorhead, Pantera, Megadeth, Sammy Hagar, Anthrax, Joan Jett/Lita Ford and Skid Row. The second volume will focus on The Beatles, and Bluewater has offered Splash Page readers the first, exclusive look at the cover to the graphic novel.
