With music that influenced generations, it was only natural that a company priding itself on telling positive stories about the lives of the icons of the Heavy Metal music world.

A frequent writer for TidalWave, Michael Frizell has explored the lives of dozens of musicians for the publisher. “I like writing for TidalWave because they allow me wide latitude with artistic expression. At their core, the comic books tell true stories. True stories are always more interesting than fiction.”

The biography comic form allows TidalWave’s talented writers to delve into the history of newsworthy figures and explore the events that shaped them.

Illustrator Jayfri Hashim, an artist from Singapore who drew the new issues featuring Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and Ozzy Osbourne, felt compelled to visit the United States as he was drawing his sections of the book. A visit to the famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park inspired his work.
