When your favorite local band has a new album coming out and they ask if you'd like to put together a 'zine to accompany the project, you say "yes." And then, you take the 'zine idea from them and run with it. That's just common sense. If such an opportunity presents itself, you also ask David Degrand to illustrate it. Obviously. It will be another two months before it's available, but here's the wrap-around cover:
Yes, the entire title is: THE HAPPY BULLETS IN ASSOCIATION WITH DAVID HOPKINS AND DAVID DEGRAND PRESENT AN ILLUSTRATED COMPANION PAMPHLET FOR THE ALBUM HYDROPANIC AT THE NATATORIUM. ENJOY.
I checked. You can't twitter the whole title, 22 characters too many.
The booklet will be 12 pages long. It will include six comics based on songs from "Hydropanic at the Natatorium," three essays, and some band interviews. I'll post more information (release dates, etc.) whenever I have it.
