RIORDAN & COX
Originally released as comic segments annually as a seven-part series; these parts have now formed together to be released as a full-length graphic novel. As the title “Hitsville UK” indicates - this is a book about the music industry (but not about The Clash or their song bearing the same title). Before you even leap into the first page, the foreword by Matt Everett (Menswear) states that “the language of music is the language of comics”. XS Noize can confer the validity of this statement and the quality of a music-themed graphic novel rests on the ability of the music and comic worlds to collate and work together using the same shared language.
