Welcome to the jungle! In Orbit: Guns N’ Roses, read about how the “most dangerous band in the world” rode a wave of fame and fortune during the heyday of MTV. Camera-ready, their creativity fueled by drugs, booze, and eager groupies, members like Axl Rose and Slash crafted music that permeated the airwaves. Gun N’ Roses transcended their metal roots to become genuine chart-toppers. This comic book explores their meteoric rise and dramatic fall.

Orbit: Bon Jovi is a sequel to the sold-out Fame: Bon Jovi, which was featured in Rolling Stone, People, and Time magazines. The Orbit comic explores the myth behind the band, their creative impulses, and drive to be fulfilled artistically. A humanitarian and philanthropist, lead singer Jon kept the band on the charts for decades, landing them a coveted spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Written by Michael L. Frizell and art by Jayfri Hashim, Orbit: Guns N’ Roses features a special cover by famed album artist David Frizell and a regular cover by Hashim. Orbit: Bon Jovi also features two collectible covers, both by Hashim, who also wrote the outline for the comic with an assist from Frizell.

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

Thanks to a recent partnership with Ingram, TidalWave is releasing its engaging catalog of biography comics as high-quality books sporting vibrant colors and cardstock covers printed on demand.

A frequent writer for TidalWave, Michael Frizell has explored the lives of dozens of musicians for the publisher. “I jumped at the chance to work with Jayfri Hashim again. We’ve collaborated on several books and he just gets better and better. I think this comic is his strongest work to date as he captured the story I wanted to tell and nailed their likenesses.”

TidalWave has published well-received biographies of other musicians, John Lennon, George Harrison, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jerry Garcia and more.

Also back in print in a special hardcover edition is FAME: Bon Jovi, the prequel to the new edition out this week.

Their line of biographical comic books has been featured on CNN, USA Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Vanity Fair, The Today Show, FOX News, and in People Magazine among thousands of others, engaging readers of all ages with a mix of information and entertainment.

“As a reluctant reader, I found the comic book form easy to access, so I always believed comics could both entertain and teach,” said publisher and creative force Darren G. Davis.

In print on Amazon and are available on your e-reader from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, DriveThru Comics, Google Play, Overdrive, IVerse, Biblioboard, Madefire, Axis360, Blio, Entitle, EPIC!, Trajectory, SpinWhiz, Smash Words, Kobo and wherever eBooks are sold.

TidalWave’s recent partnership with Ingram allows them to produce high-quality books on demand – a boon for the independent publisher. The comic book will feature a heavy-stock cover and bright, clean colors in the interior. Ingram works across the full publishing spectrum, aiding some of the largest names in the business to local indie authors.
