Tunes: A Comic Book History of Rock and Roll

TUNES: A COMIC BOOK HISTORY OF ROCK AND ROLL Edited by Vincent Brunner (Universe)
Comics about music are usually clunkers, but this French collection does justice to its 30 subjects, (including Elvis, Jimi, the Clash, AC/DC and the Pixies). Band anecdotes mix with impressionistic lyric interpretations and subjective fan stories, most lovingly and beautifully rendered (just ignore the clunky, tired CHEAP THRILLS cover pastiche).
