LIFE IS POSERS #1: $5, 5½” x 8½”, offset, 60 pgs.

Jun 13, 2014

Okay, true, there’s copious amounts of cussing, nudity, drug use and violence here. Shit, there’s even a sieg heiling pet rat.But at its core, Life Is Posers is a comic indebted by and in loving homage to punk in all of its trappings, hypocrisies, and goofiness. Taking place throughout one night and jumping between a bevy of characters at a party, with each page being part of the longer story as well as its own separate gag, LiP #1 is actually cute and kind of sweet. Sure, people get pummeled and mocked and threatened, but everyone’s back to normal in the next page. A genuine, heartfelt, and downright funny spoof on punk, meticulously drawn and very, very smart. Nice job. –Keith Rosson (Mike Kadomiya, 53 Beacon St. #2, Somerville, MA02143)
