CHRIS YAMBAR - AMERICAN ARTIST, WRITER, PUBLISHER, SPEAKER - 1961 - 2021
CBG said it best when they wrote, "Actually, it's all Yambar's fault." when they reported on the secret origin of this 48 page comic! With Bongo Comics' blessing, Yambar gathered the Kings of Horror Rock and let ALICE COOPER, KISS bassist GENE SIMMONS, ROB ZOMBIE, and PAT BOONE (!) loose in this all 'MONSTERS OF ROCK' themed issue. Springfield will never be the same again! Yambar teams up with Cooper for writing chores on 'THE LEGEND OF BATTERFACE' (a FRIDAY THE 13TH spoof,) and melds minds with lizard bat-man Simmons to dish up the twisted origin tale aptly titled, 'BART SIMMONS: GOD OF THUNDER!' Yambar is joined by inker friend Ken Wheaton, Bill Morrison, and other SIMPSONS comics fan favorites in this historic rock and roll Halloween rampage!
