Earlier this week, the singer of the acclaimed noise-pop Wavves announced that he was getting into comics.
Nathan Williams tweeted pictures from a series dubbed Negative Dad about “a group of mutant teenagers.” The music frontman has partnered with artist Nicholas Gazin, who describes the series as “like an extra retarded X-Men. There’s heshers, evil parents, cat people, juvenile delinquents with partially functioning mutant powers, aliens, dreams.”
Gazin goes on to state the project will run for “at least 12 issues” and is tentatively set to come with a cassette of music by Williams.
“This is going to be our gift (although it will cost money) to people who enjoy pot,” Gazen told Pitchfork. “Put the tape on, put in a beanbag chair in a space small enough to get clambaked and just read the comic and stare at the pictures and chuckle at the pictures while your friend plays Nintendo and eats all your Pirate Booty or something.”
