I love listening to music while reading comics (Basil Poledoris’s Conan the Barbarian was amazing for DC’s Kingdom Come). Stereotypical Freaks has its own soundtrack – which you can use to enjoy the comic with. And it really adds to the experience. I created a Spotify playlist called ‘Stereotypical Freaks’, and it seemed like there was only one or two songs Spotify didn’t have.
This is the simple story of a band coming together. The pitfalls of high school are there, and though I don’t like to be reminded of them, they resonated with me as I thought back to this time in my life.
As the characters develop, and we learn more about them, they learn more about themselves. An intriguing story with a lot of heart, it makes you reflect on where you are in life and what’s important to you.
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
Well-written, and emotionally stirring, I heartily recommend this book. Check it out.
(Note: in Chapter 6, on the recommended listening, Jet City Woman and Another Rainy Night should be attributed to Queensryche, rather than the Who.)
