You Missed that Issue?! Corrective Measures Volume 1

“It’s another addition of "You Missed that Issue?!” where I talk about a comic you’ve probably never heard of and need to read! Corrective Measures Volume 1 was published by Arcana Comics back in 2008. The first volume collects the first six issues of Corrective Measures and with each issue (dubbed “chapter”) comes more thrills, mystery and fascinating characters. I was given the chance to enjoy the story yet again when I participated in Comic Bin’s Preview Weekend. You can find the full volume at their site here (for the monthly price of $8.99 for hundreds of other comics plus this gem). But, without further ado and advertisement, onto the madness of Corrective Measures!“

Happy 67th birthday to Alice Cooper! Read about his amazing life story in the biography comic book! Digitally there is one cover 0 but if you go to Comic Flea Market, you can get the other two collectable covers!   Alice Cooper is a man, a band, and an idea that took on a life of its own, a voice for shock and glitter rockers whose influence created stars like Marilyn Manson and KISS. Behind the paint, the boa constrictors, and the staged executions is a man whose creative energies gave rise to a legend. Half truth, half fiction, Alice Cooper defines fame.   Orbit Alice Cooper, is available for $3.99 on your e-reader from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, DriveThru Comics, Google Play, My Digital Comics, Overdrive, Iverse, Biblioboard, ComicBin,Axis360, Blio, Entitle, Comicblender, Kobo and wherever eBooks are sold. #gallery-0-4 { margin: auto; } #gallery-0-4 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-0-4 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-0-4 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
