I knew that a queer 90’s record store comic would be my vibe – but then you throw in an underground teen girl vigilante fight club? Hell yes! I read volumes 1 and 2 of Heavy Vinyl tonight and thoroughly enjoyed them. Clever, quirky, and with a fantastically diverse group of characters ready to take on the world and make it a better place. With a strong message about the power of individuals when they join together with a common purpose, and an underlying theme of the importance of music to communicate important ideas, this comic rocks. Quite literally, too – there is a killer soundtrack, and the action throughout packs a punch. I wish I’d been friends with these girls when I was a teenager. Hell, I wish I was friends with them now. Highly recommended.

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
