Tunes Summary

Tunes by Vincent Brunner

Engaging as well as informative, "Tunes" traces the rise of rock and roll through the format of comics. Capitalizing on the immense popularity of the graphic novel, Vincent Brunner has assembled illustrators and cartoonists to visually depict the history of rock music through comics. This unique approach will not only appeal to those who grew up with the bands, but also to an entirely new generation of budding fans. Full of colorful personalities from larger-than-life divas to modest men who made it big, the story of rock is compelling and diverse. From Elvis and Little Richard to the British Invasion in the 1960s and onward through the eras of punk, heavy metal, new wave, and grunge, this series of black-and-white graphic depictions ranges from hilariously personal to absolutely wild. Each strip is accompanied by humorous yet informative text recounting the early struggles, successes, and challenges of each band. Also included is a selective discography for each band or artist, highlighting their biggest hits or most memorable songs.

Tunes Reviews

"For "Tunes: A Graphic History of Rock and Roll" (Universe, October), music journalist Vincent Brunner compiled thirty comics to illustrate key moments in music history. While some of the results are pretty straight forward -- artists Catel and Philippe Paringaux render Janice Joplin's death, Sebastient Lumineau draws the Ramones onstage -- others opt for a more oblique style." "Book Forum

""The comic strips are quite amazing and often incredibly abstract, which pairs nicely with Vincent's witty & concise introduction to each artist."

."..Tunes takes readers through key moments in rock history. Brunner, a music journalist, utilizes comic book and graphic novel format to keep things moving with a fast and energetic pace." " Selectism
