Script: Derek The Rock Star

Derek the Rock Star is a 2011 story written and illustrated by Nate Spidgewood. It's about a teenage boy named Derek Finn who starts up a new rock band called Insane Brats. But this job was ruined by a group of FBI agents that hate rock music, so he teams up with his bandmates to defeat the agents and take the genre back.
