        Michael Doc Allred Also Credited as M Dalton Allred grew up in the 60 s and 70 s and was surrounded with the best in pop culture and a steady diet of music, movies and comic books including the three B s Beatles, Bond and Batman to the point of obsession So it should come as no surprise that he keeps a hand in film and music He s the lead singer and guitarist for The Gear , but comic books have always been a seminal source of joy for Mike and that joy remains the main ingredient in most of his work Allred first tasted success in the comics field with his wildly popular MADMAN series, which is currently being developed for a live action film with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez His earlier work from GRAFIK MUZIK was turned into the cult hit movie G Men from Hell directed by Christopher Coppola featuring Robert Goulet as the Devil Other work includes Red Rocket 7, his history of Rock and Roll told in the context of a sci fi adventure storyl the Madman spin off THE ATOMICS and his magnum opus, THE GOLDEN PLATES, where he s illustrating the entire Book of Mormon Mike counts the secret to his success to be his wife, and creative partner, Laura Allred, who is is considered to be one of the best colorists in the business.


    1. Extraña combinación de documental y ciencia ficción con seres inmortales que escapando de una raza alienígena a través del tiempo se va contando el inicio, florecimiento, desarrollo y apogeo del pop rock. A pesar de su originalidad algo no cierra en el trasfondo fantástico y el dibujo de los más flojos que le conozco a Mike Allred, parece hecho a las apuradas, sin buenas terminaciones. No deja de ser un cómic interesante que aporta mucha data de música.

    2. Este cómic destila amor a la música por los cuatro costados, se nota que Mike Allred es un apasionado del rock y que tiene una cultura musical bastante sólida este es un cómic que apreciarán mucho más aquellos que se toman la música (y en concreto la música popular de la segunda mitad del siglo XX) realmente en serio, porque el número de referencias y detalles de interés es abrumador, aquel que no le siga el juego del quién es quién musical a Mike Allred tiene muchas menos posibilida [...]

    3. I read it when it was first published in the late 90s, returning to it 20 years later was both nostalgic and a reminder of the vast generational shift in which many of the artists featured in the series are now very much the "classic rock" of grandparents. It's also great to look at a period of artistic difference from Mike Mignola with the fat, sharpie like lines he used for the series, and the colors from Laura Allred popped per usual.

    4. Me encantaría conseguir este libro-disco en edición española, pero por lo que veo está más que difícil. De todos modos, dejo como to-read esta edición hasta nuevo aviso. Cuando pueda me pongo a jugar a reconocer a los íconos musicales que aparecen en la portada.

    5. I was introduced to this graphic novel by my Book Club, and I’m really glad I read it. I believe this is the first Mike Allred piece, I’ve read or written about, and for the most part I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the music survey of all of Mike Allred’s favorites from the 1950s until the early/mid ‘90s was distracting and indulgent at best, and annoying and elitist at worst. Like the guy at the shop who just has to keep throwing trivia at you until he finds the one thing you didn’t kno [...]

    6. Bellissimi e coloratissimi i disegni degli Allred. Fregano sempre: non si può non comprare un prodotto con una confezione così attraente. Salvo poi ricredersi leggendo la storia, che è piuttosto insulsa. Non proprio illeggibile, ma neanche degna di nota.

    7. Desde hace unos meses tenía ganas de adentrarme en el mundo de los comics, pero no llegaba a encontrar el adecuado para dar el paso: la mayoría que encontraba eran relacionados con los superhéroes, como los de Marvel, y debo confesar que ese universo no me interesa mucho.Hasta que un día en la sección de comics de la biblioteca de mi pueblo me topé con este comic, el cual me llamó la atención por su portada, y al leer la sinopsis decidí que era el adecuado para comenzar con ellos.Red Ro [...]

    8. I'm a fan of Mike Allred from back in the Grafik/Graphique Muzak/Musique days; I've been a pop & rock afficianado for about that long, as well. However, there's always been something about this best-of-both-worlds book (and indeed the entire multimedia project of which it was part) that's been off the mark for me. The art is, typical of Allred, stunning and the colours are, typical of the other Allred, gorgeous. It would be a fun traipse through the history of pop & rock if it didn't see [...]

    9. This book was given to me years ago, but I'd never really been interested in reading it. I picked it up now because it was relatively short and I needed some distraction one night. It was a lot more interesting than I'd expected, though nothing spectacular. My favorite part was kind of a sub-point of the story - Red Rocket 7 was extremely interested in music, and it details his interactions with many musicians throughout the years. It was fun to see the artist's interpretation of the musicians a [...]

    10. THE BEATLES, THE STONES, ELVIS, LITTLE RICHARD, T-REX, BOWIEe history of rock n roll told thru sci-fi-pop-comic-art. can't describe it any better than thatez mike allred. genius. i still like MADMAN better, but you can tell this is just done out of pure love fer music and comics and stuff. BONUS! this new collection (not the one pictured above) is now the size of a 7"!! but one complaint--the dandy warhols show up too much. i used to like them, but they're douchebags. this book, and mike allred [...]

    11. Originally serialized in the 1990s, this odd series brings together SF, comics, and rock and roll in a quasi-religious narrative about clones, immortality, and the great lost chord. Lovely Kirbyesque gonzo art, rather pedestrian writing, and a meandering plot more interested in likening the protagonist to major 1950s and 1960s rock icons than in telling a sensible story. And since it's reproduced at a smaller size than originally intended, it looks cramped.

    12. Not sure this is going to really mean anything to a reader who isn't up on their rock history; but this is a fun trip through the first 20ish years of rock. Featuring a nicely retro sci-fi background, we follow the adventures of Red Rocket 7, a rock n roll loving clone of an alien fugitive. Rock is very obviously near and dear to Allred's heart, and it really shows on every page of this book. Mike's art and design is beautiful, and Laura's colors are stunning as usual. A ton of fun!

    13. Did not like the history lesson and the 'I so hung out with beatles' feeling. The story was what I like and it was disregarded so that I could learn the history of David Bowe. Which would be cool if red rocket did not hang out with every musician in the last decade. All I want to know is, did he smoke pot with any no names?

    14. Lushly colored (holla Laura Allred!) sci-fi comic in which an alien is inserted into 20th century popular music history.Yeah, kinda nuff said. Saw the Allreds at the last Oly Comics Fest (2012) but somehow had never read this.

    15. I loved the art, the trip through rock and roll history, everything. Er, except the story, which didn't totally engage me like Madman always did. That Beatles cover, um, cover was fantastic, though. Great rendition of Black Francis.

    16. Absolutely amazing.A detailed chronicle of the history of Rock & Roll, with space aliens and robots!A really great read!

    17. A fun visual pop art look at the history of rock and roll thru sci-fi glasses, but completely falls apart with a disaster of an ending.

    18. I really, really, really wanted to like this since it seemed like as if Ziggy Stardust were Doctor Who, but it just didn't work out for me.
