Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mason is young, and he hangs out with kids that are into bad music and bad haircuts. He lives in sunny California, where he spends his nights acting stupid in punk rock clubs and his days aimlessly reading comics and listening to tunes. The two most important things in his life are the girl who makes his heart beat at erratic speeds and the band with the strange boy he knows from high school-both of whom lead lives far more interesting than the one he leads himself. Unfortunately, his life is about to come crashing down on him in a barrage of angry fists and stomping feet. Everything is going to change. The debut novel by Oni editor in chief Jamie S. Rich is finally back in print. Featuring illustrations by Scott Morse, Andi Watson, Judd Winick, Renee French, and Chynna Clugston-Major. Cover by Mike Allred (X-STATIX). Co-published by Crazyfish/MJ-12.

Review:

"[A] lyrical elegy to lost youth, the death of modern rock, and the search for something authentic....Rich's novel is full of excellent, spare writing....He lingers over beautifully rendered character descriptions, making even the most ancillary figures vital and relevant....Rich's biggest accomplishment is in capturing an era that ended so softly that many are still wondering how it faded away." Lisa Lambert, The Willamette Week (Portland, OR)

Review:

"Cut My Hair is a smart, well written, coming of age story. It?s also about being in love, not only with another person, but with music. Specifically, punk rock music....Cut My Hair, filled with the longing and heartache of teenage angst, explores both the lifestyle and the music of the Los Angles Punk rock scene of the early 90?s with authority and affection." Barry Wolborsky, NewComicReviews.com
