It’s not unusual to find CBR running a preview of an upcoming comic, but it is pretty unusual for CBR to run a preview of an upcoming CD. The name of the site is Comic Book Resources, after all. But when the CD in question is the soundtrack to a comic book, worlds collide and a cross-over of genres takes place without the usual destruction of universes found in most comic cross-overs.
This Wednesday sees the release of the second issue of the Oni Press Comic “Pounded,” by Brian Wood and Steve Rolston. Oni Press has provided CBR with a preview of the first four pages of this book. Click the images below to take a look.
Here’s how Oni describes the book:
Missy and Heavy were in love. Things were perfect. Heavy led the Vancouver
punk rock scene with Missy at his side. They were practically royalty. But
that was before. Before she went away to college and before Heavy cheated on
her with another girl. Now Missy’s back in town and while Heavy has broken
hearts before, Missy isn’t quite the same girl she used to be — and she
isn’t alone either! It’s more black humor, bloodstains, and broken hearts
courtesy of Brian Wood (“Channel Zero,” “Couscous Express”) and Steve Rolston
(“Queen & Country”)!
