It's Isotope Sneak Peek Time
Gipi's Awesome Garage Band


When our friends at First Second Books announced their spring 2007 offerings including more books from Eddie Campbell, Louis Troundheim, and Sfar, we here at the Isotope stood up with a hearty round of applause!

But nothing excited us more than Garage Band.



With the family garage finally his own to do with as he pleases, Giuliano grabs life by the reins and forms the band he and his friends have always dreamed of. Putting aside the fear of failure which lives in us all, these four friends begin bashing out music on battered equipment and find an unexpected refuge from turbulent family lives. But when their only amp blows a fuse, a desperate search for some new equipment lands them in more trouble than they ever saw coming...

Written and painted in gorgeous watercolor by the brilliant Italian cartoonist Gipi, this original graphic novel thrilled us with the promise of an introspective look at the intersection between music and teenage life... and having just finished reading it, we have to tell you, this book brought tears to our eyes.

Garage Band
