Kill Your Boyfriend (Grant Morrison, Phillip Bond)

In which Mr. Grant Morrison & Mr. Phillip Bond weave a tale of young love.

Just an everyday story of innocent young girl meets wrong side of the tracks boy, girl falls for boy, boy takes girl on violent rampage through English suburb.

This is adolescence with attitude. Lots of attitude. & guns, drugs, bombs, crossdressing, weird cults, magical mystery buses, dadaesque art movements & general rudeness to old, boring people.

Think back to when you were young. This is what you always wanted to do, admit it. Except you were too normal, too dull & frankly, you could only ever dream about doing this sort of thing.
Just imagine, if you'd have just put a little more effort into being young this could be autobiographical. But just like the rest of us, you’ll just have to read the dream.

Kill Your Boyfriend. Page after page of brilliantly funky writing, fantasy, escapism, with lots of lovely pictures from the talented & often overlooked Phillip Bond.
Lots of attitude & lots of fun.

Sadly this is long out of print and the good folks at DC show no signs of reprinting it anytime soon.
