If you’re as excited as I am for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, then you’re going to want to read these! They’re a group of official tie-in comics to the upcoming film.
When a gig on Blur‘s 2013 Asian tour was canceled, it left the band free in Hong Kong for a week. They spent that week in a tiny Kowloon studio and recorded what eventually became The Magic Whip, their first album in 13 years — an album which by the way is brilliant with its familiar but also exploratory feel.
The band then released a 24-page comic book to serve as a visual companion to the album titled ‘Travel to Hong Kong with Blur‘ – which features Blur in a futuristic Hong Kong adventure. The comic was created by Hong Kong’s famed comic artist Kongkee of Penguin Lab.
If you didn’t already know, I love the 90’s… especially the music. When you think 90’s music, you think either Alternative or Britpop — so I’m gonna start with Alternative Music.
