Stars burn hot, bright, and then go out forever. But their legacy
remains. Like the smoky haze of a rock-n-roll arena show, a cloud
of mystery and intrigue surrounds music's infamous "27 Club." Some
of the club's more famous members include Jim Morrison (The Doors),
Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), and Amy
Winehouse, among many others. These fallen stars revolutionized
music in their youth, only for all of them to die at the age of 27.
Is it a conspiracy, or merely a coincidence? A rocking crew of
fifty-four comics creators were challenged to use their favorite
song or member of the 27 Club as inspiration for new and original
comic stories and vignettes. 27, A Comic Anthology is a free-form,
funky collection of over 200 pages of rock-n-roll comics, featuring
over twenty-seven new grooves inspired by, and in tribute to, the
myth and magic of this club of lost stars and their shining, tragic
legacy. Edited by Enrica Jang (Red Stylo Media), with introduction
by Dr Dianna Kenny (Sydney University, and author of "Stairway to
Hell: life and death in the pop music industry") Original comic
stories, illustrated essays and art inspired by the music of: Amy
Winehouse, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Jim Morrison (The Doors), Janis
Joplin, Brian Jones (The Rolling Stones), Alexander Levy
(composer), Robert Johnson, Rudy Lewis (The Drifters), Dave
Alexander (The Stooges), Richey Edwards (Manic Street Preachers),
