Thanks for the interest, Cobainsweater!
apparently, I've been banned from logging into Morrissey-Solo as conchrisoulis for "spamming" the forum with news on my new Smiths early years comics biography!
yikes: (it's a Smiths related project that I just announced -once- in a Smiths/Moz fan forum, what's wrong with that? Is it not related or newsworthy?)
Thanks Kewpie and davidt!Infraction has been reversed.
In all honesty, I think that 'The Smiths 1982-1987 period' itself has been covered so much and so often (MOJO just ran -yet another- feature) that it's the roots of the band that remain truly interesting, mystifying and unexplored. The relationships, the pre-Smiths bands, the puzzle of who, what, when!
By visualizing that period for the first time for the fans, and the newer generation, I'm kinda hoping to achieve what Backbeat and Nowhere Boy did for the legacy of The Beatles. Bringing forth, in a visual narrative, the complexity of the human that led to The Beatle/The Smith stereotype that we're all acquainted with.
Thanks for the kind words!
TALES OF THE SMITHS Episode 1 is now online at SoComic.gr!
The episodes are in Greek and, once you scroll down, in English and they will continue daily!
If you dig the series, please 'Share' and 'Like' the episodes on the SoComic site,
so that the series can go on enabling me to retell all the Early Years of The Smiths!
Very interesting and well drawn. I look forward to more. (Did you use Mozipedia for the fun facts?)
I've actually got a quite large bibliography and tons of interviews that I've been gathering for years to derive info from!
Strangely enough, as I am on holiday in Greece right now, I've left my Mozipedia in the UK and it could come in handy when I struggle with some of the other sources that I brought with me! Luckily, I'll be back home in a week, so we'll be reunited!
I'll be sure to publish all my bibliography, when the comics are one day collected in a single book!
