Here's what Red Stylo has to say about 27, A Comic Anthology:
Stars burn hot, bright, and then go out forever. But their legacy remains.
Like the smoky haze of a ‘70s arena show, a cloud of mystery and intrigue surrounds music’s infamous "27 Club." Its members—including Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse, to name just a few—revolutionized music in their youth, only to die at the age of 27. Is it a conspiracy, or merely a coincidence?
Using the music and mystery as inspiration, an all-star band of fifty-four creators were challenged to add a few new grooves to the mythological record of the 27 club. These stories are not adaptations of songs or a particular club-member’s life. That’s not how Red Stylo rolls! This isn’t a cover-band—it’s a free-form jam session where our writer and artists use familiar melodies to create something entirely new!
That “something” is 27, A Comic Anthology--212+ full color pages of original comics, art, and illustrated essays, all inspired by the music and rock stars of the 27 Club. Tracks run the gamut from hard-rockin’ horror, dramatic dirges, classical comedies, and even a few outrageous outtakes that you just have to see!
27 is the latest in Red Stylo’s annual anthologies. For the last five years, we have hosted a face-melting festival for veteran artists and up-and-coming acts to unleash their comic arsenal on a roaring crowd of readers. But this year, we have a stronger lineup than ever before, and a theme for the ages. It’s time to #ROCKHARD or stay home!
