"Band for Life collects underground zine guru Anya Davidson's long-running comic strip for Vice. Told in short episodic bursts (and drawn in neon marker), Band for Life follows a group of ex-cons and misfits struggling to get their act together and start a successful noise rock band. Though it's full of the kind of crust one expects from a punk glory saga, Davidson plants seeds of poignant optimism and love in moments where we usually find cynicism and angst. It's a loud, wild, goofy book—and an unusually beautiful one, too."
Peanuts meets The Young Ones in this graphic novel about a noise rock band in an alternate reality Chicago.
This is a graphic novel about a noise rock band, based in an alternate reality version of Chicago, and their community of friends and acquaintances. Though beset with disaster at every turn—and frequently reduced to squabbling—they stick together because the band is the core of their existence, and they help each other find their way. Band for Life is a love letter to people compelled to create with no hope of financial reward. Full-color illustrations throughout.
