The story is simple: a rock'n'roll trio has survived an apocalyptic explosion. They have to search for some haven while meeting survivors and playing rock'n'roll. With a very fluid story and great art, the only bad thing about this book is that it is too short. 3 stories (giant ants included), that doesn't quench my thirst. I want more Apocalipstix. But I'm sure I will read it again and enjoy it the same. :)

Format: Paperback
There is a growing trend in indie comics for what I call "band comics"... for the most part, they take another genre or two (superhero comics, fight comics, romantic comedy, etc) and throw in a band as their protagonists. Enter The Apocalipstix, the 144 page original graphic novel by Ray Fawkes and Cameron Stewart (Seven Soldiers: Manhattan Gaurdian, Seaguy, Batman and Robin) about a girl band so righteous they survived mutual assured destruction!...

The Apocalipstix is the band formerly known as Mandy and the Mittens, composed of the tough-as-nails axe-handler Mandy, prototypical blonde bombshell Dot on bass, and Japanese gunslinger Megumi on the drumkit. In addition to roaming the blasted wasteland, scrounging for gas and food and just generally surviving the game, the Apocalipstix also maintain their commitment to rocking hard. They didn't let anything as minor as global thermonuclear war stop their rise to the top, either... as evidenced by the throngs of post-apocalyptic groupies they find themselves wading though in their quest for... whatever.

This comic is a lot of fun. Fawkes' script skips through all the boring parts and pretty much hits all the high notes. It reads like it was written "Marvel-style" with the intent of just giving Stewart the opportunity to draw a bunch of moments he asked for like Mandy wrestling giant ants or Dot shredding so hard her guitar explodes. Stewart flawlessly executes a loose cartoon style here, reminiscent of Jamie Hewlett or Bruce Timm. his figures are bouncy and fresh, and he handles detail work on vehicles, weapons and (or course) musical instruments like a seasoned vet!
