Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, it's about time - a graphic novel about music. Though it's also about creativity and creativity lost. A famous musician's right hand is crippled by neurological disease and he seeks the wrong person to help him. He's just turning 27 (and many music lovers know about that club), and he's got just 27 chances left to use his "gift" before dying. I found the premise to be quite original, but I found it a bit slow at first (as is the nature of plays, some movies, and novels in the "first act".) Still, looking forward to the Second Set. Rock on, Garland, rock on.

Enjoyed this thoroughly and found myself rushing to by every issue when the monthly comic came out. I couldn't have told you that Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin died at 27! Well, in "27" our protaganist does NOT want to meet the same fate!

The pop and rock sensibilities and heart of Phonogram and Scott Pilgrim, but with the darkness of Fell or Hellblazer. A nice unique read, and one of my favourites of 2011. Along with Infinite Vacation, and Nonplayer, it's a vintage 2011 for comics. Buy this book!

Beautifully written novel on the journey a musician goes through both personally and professionally with fun and unusual twists and turns....definitely a fun read that I highly recommend. I find myself reading the book over and over to fully absorb the words and stellar art work.

I like the fantasy elements in this story, which are innovative and plausible (selling your soul and sacrificing animals are classic techniques for getting what you want from the gods, but I cannot recall combining the two, channelling the life-force of animals through a human subject in an attempt to trick the gods into thinking they're getting a human soul). I also like the very lifelike depiction of the music industry, and of the internal struggles of someone who has lost something precious to him and is offered a tempting substitute.
