Heavy Vinyl, Vol. 1 (Hi-Fi Fight Club) Reviews
YAS!! Was eagerly anticipating its release (thanks Autostraddle), and I loved it. Girl-gang banding together to protect against the scourges of their world. Chris as the lead of the ensemble was adorable as she tries to figure out who she is and how to get the girl of her dreams.
Great for a first TP to actually have a (rad) story arc it finished, while leaving the possibility open for more. Now I'm eagerly anticipating the next one...
Cute art, cute story, cute girls [that have cute crushes on other cute girls], and awesome music - What's not to like? This is definitely a fun idea for a series and I can't wait for volume 2!
Also I sent this page to my friend with the caption "i would be offended by the design of this girl asking where the new placebo album is if it wasn't so spot on" and she replied "lmao who let damien bloodmarch in here" so new headcanon accepted basically ;)
WOW ??? i loved this so much ??? cute girls cute art and music?? also they are fckn vigilantes??? damn
lovely art style, great diverse cast of kickass girls and an interesting concept
its definitely entertaining to read
the pacing of the first volume is a bit off for me personally, theres a lot happening in 4 issues that might have been better if it had been spread out a bit more, but its still fun
I absolutely loved volume 1 of this new comic! The main character, Chris, is an awkward teenager with anxiety issues (I could totally relate) who gets a super cool job at Vinyl Destination, the local record store, in 1998. She works with other awesome women in this music driven atmosphere, hoping that this dream job will help her figure out who she really is. All of the main characters are badass women who fight the patriarchy, know how to throw a punch, and are super intelligent.
I got a great d ...more
I'll skip the synopsis and just say that this was a wonderful start to what I can only hope is a continuing series. I was so devastated with the cliffhanger ending. I want more!
Anyways, I'll make a list of my pros and cons to keep things short and simple. There is way too much I want to gush about, otherwise.
- Love, love, LOVED the art style! I find far too often that western comics tend to be ugly in either the obviously-traced-from-a-stock-photo kind of way or from trying too hard to be ...more
it's so cute & fun & also so effortlessly diverse!! two biracial couples one of which is sapphic! gay dads! another sapphic couple! black & puerto rican mcs!
Carly Usdinin "Heavy Vinyl, Vol. 1" (Boom! Box, 2018) on 1990-luvun loppupuolelle sijoittuva tarina, jossa amerikkalaisen levykaupan myyjinä toimivat nuoret naiset muodostavat myös salaisen iskujoukon, joka taistelee viekkautta, vääryyttä ja seksismiä vastaan. Luvassa on tavallista tiukempi tapaus, kun viisikon pitäisi löytää suositun kadonnut laulaja. Mutta miksi ihmeessä bändin muut jäsenet ovat kuin aivopestyjä zombeja?
Kannattaa siis kääntää aivojen realismiasetukset heti alkuun vähän löysemm ...more
