About


  Cover Art by @TankFerrettArt


SACTOWN, CALIFORNIA 1982

Mikey & Carlos are two head-banging bad-asses stoked for a wild weekend with their best bros and cherry pie chicks at the Celtica heavy metal concert. Unfortunately for these thrashers, all hell breaks loose when strange, glowing spheres rocket toward earth and crash land in the middle of the mosh pit! It’s up to these metalheads to not only stay alive, but save SacTown from an otherworldly invasion.

Thrashers is a righteous 80’s heavy metal alien invasion comic series. 

 Who need super powered heroes, with fancy shmancy costumes or cybernetic creatures with crazy high-tech gizmos and gadgets. All you need are these hard-nosed, hard-headed and hardcore Rock’n’Rollers, to battling the onslaught of an alien invasion.

 Just Denim, Leather, Spandex and Attitude.

 Mikey is a beer drinking metal head mechanic that loves his ’66 Chevy El Camino.If he’s not elbows deep in an engine, he’s with his buddy Carlos, getting into trouble, till he laid eyes on Dee and his world was rocked.

Dee is a sweet, sexy athletic college girl from the sticks. When she’s not chilling at the beach or at the mall, she’s hanging out with her best friend Maria. Then she met Mikey and everything changed.

Carlos is a beer drinking hardcore head banging welder. When he’s not obsessed with building something awesome or raising Cain with his buddy, Mikey, he’s hanging with Maria.

Maria is a smart, sassy and sexy college chick who loves rock music. If her nose isn’t buried in a magazine, she’s hanging out with her best friend Dee or with Carlos, who she loves almost as much as her ’72 Chevy Nova.

Brian is an Academic genius Punk rocker with a red mohawk. He loves tinkering with electronics, his ’76 VW Beetle and playing pinball.

Rocky is a party hardy college pretty boy and a bit of a nerd. If you don’t find him in front of a mirror, he’ll be at the arcade or at the movies.






THE OUTCASTS
