You already know that 27 is a very significative number in Rock. The age that Hendrix, Cobain, Morrison and Amy Winehouse died. I don't need to explain you then why Charles Soule and Renzo Podesta chose that title. The comic was published by Image in two volumes in 2010 and 2011. The story is about a Rock Star that injures his hand and get super Powers. The second volume is about rock stars that have only one hit and slowly fade away.
