John Dolmayan and Torpedo Comics - Exclusive pics!

With System of a Down currently on open-ended hiatus the members of the band have been busy with their own projects. Frontman Serj Tankian is rocking the airwaves with a new album whilst guitarist Daron Malakian and drummer John Dolmayan are busy working on their new band Scars on Broadway.

Comic-lover Dolmayan is also busy getting his new company, Torpedo Comics, under way. Rhythm reported on the company in the November issue (onsale now), but we've since been able to get our hands on some exclusive pictures of the Torpedo Comics operation!

No rest for the wicked! John still finds time to have a blast on his kit in the warehouse.
