What did you think of the book?

ID is a teenage boy who’s life has recently turned upside-down. His girlfriend dies tragically and he uses music, specifically heavy metal, to express his grief, loss, and love for her. What he doesn’t know is that the whole town can hear him on the radio and soon he becomes a local legend.

There is so much I love about this book. I can’t even stop to explain or have any idea where to begin. The art. The story, The plot. The idea of translating sound and music into pictures and ideas – HOLY ASDFGHJK:LKJHG; I cannot put this book down. Easily one of the best comics/graphics I’ve read in a long time. Perhaps even all year!

Would you recommend this book?
