I have these:

But to be honest, I don't remember what they're about. They're packed away now...

"Love Hurts.
Your lies, they cut me.
Now your words don't mean a thing.
I don't give a damn if you ever loved me..."

-Cher, "Woman's World"

I will never be able to find the source again, but I read about the one on the top right of this picture..
It is basicly the story from the love symbol album
the princess and the three chains of gold

According to what i read, the writer didn't know that the storyline had been used for the album... but that seems unlikely to me

Ok, here is a brief summary:

The 1st to come out is the one with Prince on the motorcycle. It's basically a comic book history of Prince's musical career. Best part is at the end where the book says there is a huge rivalry going on between P and MJ, and that they hate each other. Even says that at the end of the Batdance song, Prince is screaming "MICHAEL JACKSON"....when we all know he is saying "DON'T STOP DANCIN'!"

2nd book, with the yellow cloud guitar, has P as a muscian/superhero saving the world from a rival musician called "Spooky Electric" and his mind controlling beats. Best scene here is when Prince steps up to a group of thugs and basically threatens to beat their ass, to which the cowar like dogs. Gotta admit, Jet Lee wishes he had some of the kung fu moves P displays in this book.

Last book is semi-based off of the song "7". Prince is on tour and must save Princess Mayte from evil-doers that wish to cause her harm. Wish I could remember a scene from this one, but I know P is more James Bond/Jason Bourne than the androgonist rock star we know in this title.

All three are great, and as a side note, I believe the Cloud Guitar cover won an award for the best comic cover for that year. Brian Boland is the artist and really did a great job.

I would love to read all three of these comics! But I'm too cheap to overbid for them on eBay (they are probably like $100 each by now, or some crazy-ass price). I don't suppose anyone could/would post some scans??? batting eyes

The Rock and Roll comic one, also had the life story of George Clinton in it. I had all three and tossed them in the trash back in 2006.
