The graphic novel follows four teenaged boys Dan, Mark, Jacoby and Tom-who represent the many clicks of the social spectrum. Through their love of music-and for their own personal reasons-they come together and form a band in order to participate in the battle of the bands.
As each member of the band goes through challenges and tragedies they grow and become stronger people for it. It’s as though they started out as children and are now on the cusp of adulthood due to the things that they’ve been through. They’re also more prepared for what future challenges that will come.
Shapiro’s writing is excellent. This is a story that will tug at the heart strings of readers. Pekar’s art is also wonderful as it is in perfect tune with Shapiro’s storytelling.
Overall, this is a wonderful story. This is one of the reasons why 2012 is the year of the indie creator. Go and get this graphic novel. It’s not available until November 14th. You can preorder the book on Amazon.
