Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Starring notorious muscle-bound punk/metal dudes Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig (with a little help from soft rockers Hall and Oates), Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever is a love story to end all love stories. And here for the first time is the complete compiled collection of the graphic novel that details the fictitious romance of these real-life music icons. Henry and Glenn are very good “friends”; they are also roommates. Daryl and John live next door; they are Satanists. The 20 short stories about their domestic life that follow offer a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time. Follow along as Henry and Glenn go to therapy together, battle an evil cult in the forest, and profess their love between dealing with repeated jealousy and normal relationship problems. This tongue-in-cheek graphic novel satire is filled with adventure, subtle references, and humor, and the book also features dozens of pinup art and full-color covers from the original series.

Review:

"Over the past three years, some of indie comics' biggest names have built a strange and wonderful mythology around real-life punk singers/muscle heads Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig (Rollins was the front man of Black Flag and Danzig was the front man of the Misfits; both were seminal hardcore bands of the late '70s and early '80s). The series of minicomics is the brainchild of editor and primary contributor Neely (The Blot, The Wolf), who uses an arsenal of classically inspired cartooning styles to paint a world in which the pair live together as lovers and confidants. In this anthology, Rollins and Danzig's suburban home shares a fence with Satan-worshipping duo Hall and Oates. The conflicts alternate between domestic and more epic ax-wielding, demon-battling fare. Not every piece is a hit single, but there is plenty of hilarious and often profane entertainment here for anyone interested in punk or metal — and a forward penned by Judas Priest front man Halford (who is openly gay) provides even more devil-horned street cred. Neely's contributions are far and away the strongest of the book, though Johnny Ryan and Noah Van Sciver illustrate notable tales. There's also plenty of eye candy throughout, in the form of dozens of pages of pinups drawn in the style of comics icons such as Jack Kirby and Bill Watterson.
