True Detective ends its first season as it began: with two indelible performances [Recap: season 1, episode 8]
I keep dipping into this and it’s great, but I can’t wait to buy all of these in book form.
Getting this today is my favourite Christmas present. “Henry…” is gold.
was that a reference to henry and glenn forever?
I’m guessing so! (For those uninitiated, feast your eyes on this.)
A lot of people don’t remember this but Arthur Googy who played drums for the Misfits had a short rap career in the 80s after he left Antidote.
Dee Dee Ramone did the same thing, but I think it was late 80s/early 90s. Called himself Dee Dee King: it sucked. How was Googy?
So Rick Rubin is being portrayed as an interloper?
From previous episodes, it seems that the lone white guy at a show tended to be viewed as a poorly-undercover cop.
the Misfits panel is dope; although, despite billions of listens, I’ll admit I’m not hip to the “Henry” reference. I caught the Alice Cooper, though. the coke pinkie on Dolomite was a nice touch. This comic is officially my christmas present this year. L’Chaim, Ed.
See above WRT Rollins and Danzig. IIRC, Henry mentions Danzig favorably in Get In the Van (although the Wikipedia article doesn’t mention Danzig at all); Danzig was in the Misfits about the time (not exactly, but there’s some overlap) as Rollins was in Black Flag, and in fact Rollins was the first person that Danzig told about his plans to quit the Misfits. Rollins also knows Danzig well enough to tell someone that WRT Henry and Glenn Forever, Glenn really doesn’t have much of a sense of humor about things like that. (Danzig would later on voice his own vociferous opinion about H&GF, which that comic’s creators duly turned into a poster.)
I’m sure a lot of people already know this, but Kate the drummer was later in Luscious Jackson, a great band that never got as popular as they should have been.
Yauch in a button-down with a calculator watch (￣▽￣)ノ＿彡☆バンバン！!
Love the crowds givin’ Rubin the stinkeye. No text required!
I know it’s not very internet to say this, but I’d love to have this bound on newsprint when it’s finished.
We’re working hard on it. There should be a book around September. And, of course, all the strips will still be here online too.
When I read that last panel, in my head I heard the first 5 seconds of this:
