Morrissey and the Smiths To be in a New Comic Book

Posted by at 11:34 am on August 4, 2011

Morrissey is going to the comics now. a Comic book compilation Unite and Take Over: Comic Book Stories Inspired by The Smiths premieres at Tuscon Comic-Con in November, just following the October release of that massive Smiths box set.

The comic book project was inspired by Morrissey fan and SpazDog Press publisher Shawn Demumbrum, who tapped indie comics vets Christian Vilaire, Henry Barajas, Jeff Pina, Shelby Robertson, and others for 78 pages’ worth of comic strips. (Demumbrum also wrote one himself.)

“The concept’s pretty simple: what’s the story that plays in your head when you listen to your favorite Smiths song?” Demumbrum explained in a promotional video for the crowdsourcing web site Kickstarter.com, which helped fund the project. “The song acts as an inspiration, jumping off point, theme or mood for the story.”

  1. For all those interested, you can currently pledge through Kickstarter to secure a copy (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/756324374/unite-and-take-over-comic-stories-inspired-by-the). We won’t be able to solicit it through comic book and bookstore distributors until January, so pledging through Kickstart is the only way to get your copy before the holiday season. Better yet, contact your local comic book store and ask them to contribute. Retailers have options for wholesale pricing, in book ads and custom covers. Thanks for posting the article.
