Having long been fans of Band for Life – a brilliant online series by Anya Davidson – it’s wonderful to see it collected at last in a beautiful hardcover edition. And to celebrate Anya has done us an exclusive bookplate featuring Krang, the punk-caveman keyboardist!
The Ignatz-nominated Band for Life is the story of a noise rock band and their community of friends and acquaintances based in an alternate reality version of Chicago.
“Fusing elements of the classic British sitcom The Young Ones, as well as classic kids comic strips like Charles Schulz’s Peanuts and John Stanley’s Melvin Monster, Band for Life is a work of dark humor, but also infused with genuine affection for its cast; in many ways it is a love letter to creative people compelled to create, with no hope of financial reward.”
The comics have been serialised on Vice and on Anya’s website for the last two years, and the complete story is in print at last courtesy of Fantagraphics Books.
Limited to 200 copies, each numbered bookplate is printed on high quality card and signed by Anya Davidson. The book retails at £26.99. You can place an order now through our online store!
