Heavy Vinyl, volumes 1 and 2
Title: Heavy Vinyl
Genre/ issues: Comics. Feminism. Queer Fiction.
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.
