"Kill Audio (#5/6)
This is the penultimate chapter of one of the oddest monthlies out there, and it comes with a recommended music list as though the book weren't weird enough already. The first song on it is an old-school prog rock rarity, "Apocalypse in 9/8" as things look grim for the land of Sight and Sound. Turns out Jazz is a traitor, and I feel just a little betrayed myself after I cue up song #2, The End of the World, a 2004 Cure song. Ok, I am just not a fan of recent Cure, but the title works here and the song isn't hard to listen to or long, as the Anti-Art confesses his plan to reset Sight and Sound. Chopin's Nocturne in E minor. Like music when things look grim in a silent film. Will Kill and crew be able to stop the imminent doomsday? Hunh. I've never heard Philip Glass' "They Say Paradise Will Be Perfect", and every site I visit after googling it either wants money to download it or sets off a malware alert from my antivirus software, so I've got no accompaniment for the last bit of the book leading to the cliffhanger at the end. Things look bad for Kill, but I'm not too worried.
Another super-cool BOOM! offering, the eclectic artwork by Mr Sheldon is worth taking a look at this book by itself. Love the use of monochromatic color, too, similar to Cowboy Ninja Viking. Hopefully these folks will keep making comics after KA finishes next month--those of you who trade-wait should keep an eye out for this one!
