It’s punk music, plenty of attitude and it’s Home Sick Pilots #1 from Image.

This new series comes from writer Dan Watters and illustrator Caspar Wijngaard (letters by Aditya Bidikar).

The Home Sick Pilots is a rock band. It’s power chords, power cords, powerful powers. Young punks who will live forever, full of themselves. The powers that be, inside the haunted house, filled with punk rockers, all akimbo. Smoking, spitting, cussing, this comic has the strength, unfiltered.

It’s the 90’s. 1994, actually. Ami, lead singer of a high school punk band has been missing for weeks. The haunted house seems to have swallowed her up! The mood is dark and indigo. The contrasts are fascinating: glowing beings, exploding things, cops, and punks, pink and purple. Wijngaard captures the heart and soul of the sometimes empty world of high school alt-living. The teenage wasteland, well-drawn together.

This one is fresh, haunting, and gripping. Grab a copy and let it consume you!

Image, Home Sick Pilots #1, $3.99 for 30 pages of content.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
