XS Noize’s Michael Barron gave a fantastic review of Cloudscape’s Swan Song anthology:
From its 12” by 12” size and with each story title contained inside a vinyl image; the connection to tangible and superb quality music is superb. Just this musical knowledge alone is blissful enlightenment; the stories will blow your mind…
For the love of music, creativity and motivation; this collection of stories by Swan Song by the Cloudscape Comics Society is an essential read for anyone galvanized by music.
“This Week in Comics” is a new, (hopefully) weekly segment where we showcase interesting and relevant comics news with an emphasis on local creators.
This past week, two new Kickstarters were launched by Cloudscape members.
The first Kickstarter, Rise of the White Phoenix by Lisa Lindsay LaRose is a comic about a young girl named Luisa who wants to become a Luchadora: a Mexican wrestler. Luisa has been keeping her fighting a secret from her father, who does not approve, but he’s been keeping secrets too…
The second Kickstarter, Band Vs. Band by Kathleen Jacques is about two clashing musicians: wholesome do-gooder Honey Hart with her band The Candy Hearts, and bad-girl troublemaker Turpentine with her dirty noisy band The Sourballs. The gals start as enemies and rivals with a secret attraction to each other, but gradually fall in love. It’s fun, queer, and retro-inspired, with a distinctive visual style.
