Rock'n'Roll Comics.

I've always loved the art of Mike Allred, but I've always been underwhelmed by his writing, except for one instance: RED ROCKET 7. Here's an interview about it coming back to print.

Originally published in 12"x12" (album size), it's returning in 7"x7" (single size). Is there a metaphor for the shrinking ambitions of both the music and comics industries to be found there? Hmm?

It's so gorgeous in that huge format, too...

Yup. It always leaves me disappointed when things are resized downwards (see also: 2000AD reprints, ot those Metal Hurlant albums butchered by DC).
