Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig Become More Than Friends in New Romance Comic
While Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins fans longing for a little inter punk romance have historically had to settle for fan fiction, a new comic book by art fraternity “Igloo Tornado” (which includes artists Tom Neely, Gin Stevens, Scott Nobles, and Levon Jihanian) explores a completely fictional relationship between the two sequential art style.
Starring super-notorious musclebound punk/metaldudes Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins (with a little help from super-notorious soft-rockdudes Hall and Oates) Henry & Glenn Forever is a love story to end all love stories! The premise of this Cantankerous Titles-released comic is explained at the front of the zine: “Henry and Glenn are very good ‘friends.’ They are also ‘room mates.’ Daryl and John live next door. They are satanists.” What follows is ultra-metal violence and cryfest diary entries, cringing self-doubt and mega-hilarious emo-meltdowns. Who knew Danzig was such a vulnerable, self-conscious sweety-pie? Who knew Rollins was such a caring spouse? Who knew Hall and Oates were so infernally evil-yet so considerate?
Weighing in at 64 pages, the indie comic seems like a pretty good deal for fans at $4. Just don’t tell Hall and Oates about their fictional Satanism. Those guys seem sensitive.[Via Queersighted]
