Wavves frontman takes on comics with Negative Dad

Earlier this week, the singer of the acclaimed noise-pop Wavves announced that he was getting into comics.

Nathan Williams tweeted pictures from a series dubbed Negative Dad about “a group of mutant teenagers.” The music frontman has partnered with artist Nicholas Gazin, who describes the series as “like an extra retarded X-Men. There’s heshers, evil parents, cat people, juvenile delinquents with partially functioning mutant powers, aliens, dreams.”

Gazin goes on to state the project will run for “at least 12 issues” and is tentatively set to come with a cassette of music by Williams.

“This is going to be our gift (although it will cost money) to people who enjoy pot,” Gazen told Pitchfork. “Put the tape on, put in a beanbag chair in a space small enough to get clambaked and just read the comic and stare at the pictures and chuckle at the pictures while your friend plays Nintendo and eats all your Pirate Booty or something.”



And I thought Wavves was impossible to tolerate BEFORE…it’s like this guy is trying to create a black hole where thought and imagination used to be in the universe. I think he might be getting powerful enough to do it, too.

I am flattered that the comic project I am doing is on my favorite comics blog. Thanks guys!

Jesus Christ, Chris Jones. You talk about Wavves like he’s Lady Gaga and you think he’s controlled by the Illuminati. He’s a guy who makes music and most people’s mom’s have no idea who he is so relax. You can dislike what he does without it having to be a black hole. I think you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to ignore Wavves if you don’t seek him out.
