Zep, the French-language cartoonist of “Titeuf” and “Captain Biceps,” is debuting his first English-language work with “A Story of Men,” the story of a band that never quite broke big. The book looks absolutely gorgeous, and as someone with a soft spot for musical comics, this is definitely grabbing a spot on my pull list. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the book, which comes out this month from IDW.
Written and Illustrated by Zep
In this original graphic novel, the last time that the rock group Tricky Fingers found themselves in the same spot was eighteen years ago for a concert in the BBC studios that was supposed to launch their career… but instead ended in catastrophe. Since then, this group of friends that once harbored dreams of revolutionizing rock has parted ways, most drifting into musical obscurity. Except Sandro. His initiative brings the group together for the weekend to find out where life has taken them. How their fortunes have faired. To see if they’ve learned anything since they were teenagers.
