The World is Full of Evil!

My pals over at Hydra Head Records are putting out a fancy, limited edition vinyl version of "(a) senile animal" by The Melvins. They had the bright idea of asking me to do a comic book inspired by the album. Having been a HUGE and LONGTIME fan of The Melvins, I of course said "Hell Yeah!"

Above is the first page that I inked today. The whole comic will be 22 pages long. In keeping with the surreal nature of the band, the story is quite strange. Instead of trying to interpret the album, I used the song titles as inspiration for the characters (such as: A Talking Horse, The Civilized Worm, and Blood Witch) and then wrote a story around them.

I'll post some more updates as I go along with this project.

Nice work if you can get it! Looks shweet…

If you fancy doing the same for every album in my collection I'd be very grateful.
