Jason Martin

A highly enjoyable series of comics adapted from music biographies. Within: Bob Dylan's makeshift Blood on the Tracks backing band, Kurt & Courtney's mac-and-cheese trials, John & Yoko's primal scream therapy, John Coltrane being a good guy, Mike Watt wearing a pumpkin on his head, the feuds of J Mascis & Lou Barlow, and Kristin Hersh's evil self.

40 pages, half-letter size.

Comic artist Jason Martin's Covers has long been one of our favorites and we're so thrilled about this long-awaited second issue. These "covers album"-style comic adaptations of his favorite stories about musicians are just a joy. 

In this issue: Sonic Youth's trailer of stolen gear, Keanu Reeves' ice skating rink 30th birthday party with Thurston Moore and Mike Watt, Alex Zhang Hungtai of Dirty Beaches' getting banned from the U.S., Juliana Hatfield's sold guitar, Jim O'Rourke's stuffed animals of protection, and Neil Young's brief imagined life as a salmon.
