Music snobbery and comic snobbery meet in Phonogram. Take one part Harvey Pekar and mix in one part Rob Gordon on the prowl, and you get David Kohl, our pseudoprotagonist or anti-hero of sorts. This story is about how music is magic, and uses that magic in the narration, the dialogue, and the plot. It’s layered, and it’s good. If you don’t get the references, they’re in the back. I don’t get the references – not.a.one. And that’s fine, because I have 75 years to catch up on listening to that stuff to see if it’s any good.More…

David is on the prowl at a riotgrrl club in England. But the goddess is there, and she’s pissed at him for using a woman for sex. So she charges him with a quest.

Gillen’s knowledge of music serves the story well. He’s put some time into writing this, and it shows. And the art is on. McKelvie’s art is on, from the shading to the transparent characters in the story (ghosts!). All in all, this series is worth the purchase – the series you have to re-read using companions and notes usually are.
