BoroughCon 2018: Band – A Comic Exploring Relationships And The World Of Music

An absolute must-read comic series!

Let’s make this clear now, I really enjoy Christine and Erin Humiston’s, comic Band.

Like a lot.

Like IMMENSELY enjoy it.

It can be gritty, it can be harsh, but it is somehow also filled with a relatable hope and dynamic that I completely understand and think most people will. Band explores the world of relationships and how you sometimes end up in a makeshift family. Relationships that can be full of hate and annoyances, but at the end of the day you come back. You learn about those around you and what makes them, them.

Focusing on a small band playing on the club scene, its four members are dealing with a bit of an upset to their formula. The group is made up of people who are very different, connected on the surface only by music. Their conflicting personalities is what drives the story. You want them to like each-other, some of them want to like each other, and in certain ways they do…

And that is what makes the story so emotionally real.

It helps that Erin’s expressive and lively art is paired so well with Christine’s writing. Like I said, the world is gritty, but it is still beautiful and highly detailed. The characters clash, but you end up still loving them all. They feel real and is a show of masterful skill on both creators part.

Did I mention that I really liked this comic?
