Akira the Don draws Axl Rose for Art Brut comic
Earlier this summer indie rock band Art Brut released a comic book that had Bryan Lee O’Malley, Hope Larson, Jeff Lemire, Jeffrey Brown and several others creating comics based on tracks from Art Brut’s Brilliant Tragic! album. (The band’s lead singer, Eddie Argos, is a big comic book fan, and even writes a column on them).
Artist and musician Akira the Don, whose new album The Life Equation can be heard on his blog and opens with a speech by Grant Morrison, created a comic for the song “Axl Rose.” Naturally, it features the Guns N’Roses front man leaping out of a kid’s poster to ride a motorcycle and flip off the world. The Don has posted it on his website, so you can go check it out for yourself.
