A chronicle of Todd Loren, the controversial publisher of unauthorized comic book biographies of rock stars. Despite his success, Loren’s inconsistent and frequently insufferable behavior created legions of enemies. At the height of his success, Loren was fatally stabbed, and his murder officially remains unsolved.

Despite Rock ‘n’ Roll Comics being largely derided by others in the comic book industry and hated by the music business for its “Unauthorized and Proud of It” motto, Loren won a landmark court case that established First Amendment protections for comic books.

Unauthorized inter-splices Rock ‘n’ Roll Comic art, original music by Elvis Costello and Mojo Nixon, interviews with Alice Cooper, Cynthia Plaster Caster and others, to show this story through the eyes of those who lived it.
