Having been through a bit of a comics drought because Lincoln doesn't believe in culture, my friend pointed me in the direction of Jamie McKelvie's Phonogram and by jove! What a corker! Based on the idea of phonomancers and retromancers, Rue Britannia follows the quest to track down the spirit of Britpop, interveaved with the Manics-obsessed ghost of a girl that isn't actually dead. Lots of fun for the Britpop survivor, although I'm enjoying the follow-up collection of stories set over one night in one indie night: Phonogram The Singles Club. Indeed, I'm developing a major crush on Seth Bingo and his trusty be-bobbed sidekick, Silent Girl.
I've also recently discovered Adrian Tomine (very Dan Clowes) and Scott Pilgrim is very good fun: soon to be a film thanks to Edgar Wright, of Spaced and Shaun of the Dead fame. Anyone got any recommendations?
