Summary

Summary

The definitive collection of the popular cult-classic series Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever

Two men. Two myths. One legend.

The greatest love story ever told has finally been released in graphic novel form, featuring 20 short stories about the domestic life of "Henry" and "Glenn" and sometimes their neighbors "Daryl" and "John." Glenn deals with issues with his mother while Henry, "a loud guy with a good work ethic," shows his darker side and indifference to a fan as he drinks black coffee and bonds with Glenn over their distaste for their own bands. These are two men who truly suffer best together.

This book collects four serialized comics, adds even more never-before-published pages than previous collective edition, and will have a spiffy hardcover. This collection does not include Henry & Glenn Adult Activity and Coloring Book , which will be concurrently published this year.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Over the past three years, some of indie comics' biggest names have built a strange and wonderful mythology around real-life punk singers/muscle heads Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig (Rollins was the front man of Black Flag and Danzig was the front man of the Misfits; both were seminal hardcore bands of the late '70s and early '80s). The series of minicomics is the brainchild of editor and primary contributor Neely (The Blot, The Wolf), who uses an arsenal of classically inspired cartooning styles to paint a world in which the pair live together as lovers and confidants. In this anthology, Rollins and Danzig's suburban home shares a fence with Satan-worshipping duo Hall and Oates. The conflicts alternate between domestic and more epic ax-wielding, demon-battling fare. Not every piece is a hit single, but there is plenty of hilarious and often profane entertainment here for anyone interested in punk or metal-and a forward penned by Judas Priest front man Halford (who is openly gay) provides even more devil-horned street cred. Neely's contributions are far and away the strongest of the book, though Johnny Ryan and Noah Van Sciver illustrate notable tales. There's also plenty of eye candy throughout, in the form of dozens of pages of pinups drawn in the style of comics icons such as Jack Kirby and Bill Watterson. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Library Journal Review

Punk-rock icons Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig are known for their hyper-masculinity and self-seriousness, which make them prime targets for some bizarre and very funny teasing in this collection of 20 short stories, as well as pin-up art and comic parodies spearheaded by Neely (The Blot) and the Igloo Tornado artists collective and including contributions from more than 50 different cartoonists, including -Michael DeForge, Noah Van Sciver, and Nate -Powell. The central conceit finds Henry and Glenn living together in something like suburban bliss and occasionally beset by zombie hordes, trips to outer space, satanic rituals, magic swords, and an inability to express their emotions openly and honestly. There's nothing else quite like it. VERDICT While a given reader's enjoyment might be constricted by their familiarity with Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig and whether they find the idea of them struggling with intimacy funny, anyone on board with the idea here, as well as fans of absurd humor and independent comics, will find this one to be a total thrill.-TB © Copyright 2017.
