Not For a Million Dollars Would I Read This Comic Book

From the old press-release inbox comes this little gem:

9 April, 2008 (Berkeley, CA) - This July the ever-growing relationship between comics and music reaches new heights as Tori Amos and Image Comics release COMIC BOOK TATTOO, a 480-page, full color anthology adapting the themes and ideas behind her songs into a lush volume of sequential art. “I have been surprised, excited and pleasantly shocked by these comics that are extensions of the songs that I have loved and therefore welcome these amazing stories of pictures and words because they are uncompromisingly inspiring,” says Amos. “It shows you thought is a powerful formidable essence and can have a breathtaking domino effect.”



[COMIC BOOK TATTOO’s Editor Rantz] Hoseley added, “While the connections between comics and music have been long established by generations of creators, Comic Book Tattoo is the pure distillation of how these two art forms inspire and feed off of each other across all the classifications, genres and styles of comic storytelling. Like Tori’s music, these stories run the gamut of human experience, emotion and imagination brought to life by some of the most compelling and innovative creators in the field of comics.”

COMIC BOOK TATTOO, a 12” x 12” 480-page anthology, will be in stores July 23rd.

I went to a Tori Amos show once. I was young, and in love, and painfully stupid. Never again, not even in comic book form.

They should sell that to the Justice Department for use at Guantanamo Bay.

Your an idiot and think it is just so hip to diss Amos. Performers change and grow, obviously you haven't
