A new graphic novel is being released to celebrate the 40th anniversaries of Joan Jett’s albums, “Bad Reputation” and “I Love Rock ‘n Roll.” The book will reportedly bring Jett’s songs to life as “20 vivid stories.”
The president of Jett’s Blackheart Records released a statement explaining, “We thought this was a great opportunity to celebrate comic writers and illustrators who happen to be women, and who, like Joan, are constantly being asked what it’s like to be ‘a WOMAN….’ in their respective industries. We are so excited to bring these amazing artists and writers together to celebrate this milestone anniversary.”
The graphic novels will come in standard edition soft and hardcover versions.
There will also be a limited edition Deluxe Edition with bonus materials including exclusive prints, a mini guitar amplifier and a graphic novel clamshell case.
The limited-edition Super Deluxe Edition adds a Bluetooth speaker, a copy of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts Greatest Hits on magenta colored vinyl LP and a split 7-inch record of “I Love Rock & Roll.”
