Alice Cooper is returning when the world needs him the most. Dynamite has announced a new Alice Cooper series, set to debut later this year, will find the legendary rocker squaring off against the forces of evil. The series is written by Rodney Barnes and illustrated by Edu Menna.

Here’s how Dynamite describes the new series:

Alice Cooper is no stranger to comic book fans as the iconic rocker has been popping up in the four-colored pages since the seventies. But in this new tale of terror, legendary rock acts are being attacked by demonic forces and Alice starts to notice some of his own fans happen to be… undead.

Along with a main cover by Jason Shawn Alexander, with whom Barnes has worked previously on Killadelphia, the first issue of the new series will also sport variant covers by Stuart Sayger and Andrew Mangum, as well as a photo cover of the rocker himself and a blank sketch cover.

The new Alice Cooper series is the third Dynamite release to star the musician’s persona, whose adventures have also been published over the years by Marvel and Blue Water. In a statement announcing the series, writer Barnes described the story a bit more, as well as his own history with Cooper:

“The forces of evil are looking for a different entry point to dealing with the forces of light. The conflict is driven by envy on the musical front, but there’s something more insidious beneath it all.”

“He used to come on a lot of talk shows and such and was a prominent figure on the radio stations my mom listened to. She bought a lot of Alice’s albums and I listened to them. “School’s Out,” “I’m Eighteen,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy” stand out as tracks I dug. I was also attracted to his look and stage presence.”
