There was nothin' happening at all
Every time she puts on the radio
There was nothin' goin' down at all, not at all
Then, one fine mornin', she puts on a Snap City station
You know, she couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started shakin' to that fine, fine music
You know, her life was saved by rock'n'roll"
The first review of Madman Atomic Comics #16 is in, and it couldn't be more flattering to myself and Joëlle.
Chad Nevett writes over at CBR:
"It’s weird, but this issue of “Madman Atomic Comics” begins with a 12-page story by Jamie S. Rich and Joëlle Jones that is actually stronger than the Mike Allred story that follows it. “Last Night the Atomics Saved My Life!” follows a teenage girl as she details her obsession with the band the Atomics and, most importantly, its front man, Adam Balm...Jones’s art complements Rich’s writing well, and also offers similar clean lines to Allred, firmly placing it in the same world visually. She has a dynamic flair that makes even static images visually interesting and compelling."
Read the whole thing in the link. Until he mentioned it, I had never thought about the fact that the girl in the story and the girl in the Velvet Underground song had the same name!
Also, check out this interview with Mike, featuring downloads of some of the new songs from his band, the Gear.
