Twenty-something guitarist Aksel stutters when he sings, and the latest reviews say he has the voice of a crow with throat plague. That’s not a compliment, even for the avant-garde music his band Perkeros plays. Aksel is having a hard time keeping the band together, stopping his girlfriend from kicking him out, and not getting eaten by his drummer (who happens to be a cranky brown bear). There are also the rival bands that Perkeros find themselves in battle with to save the city from supernatural forces set loose by ancient music. The key to it all could be in the music Aksel hears in his dreams—if it doesn’t drive him mad first. With a visual soundtrack that blasts off the page, Sing No Evil is a wild ride through otherworldly dangers and the power of pure rock’n’roll.

    I tend to have this (not necessarily good) habit of devouring Ahonen's books in one go, or at least as close to one go that is possible at that moment. Which means I miss out on quite a lot of little...

    An incredibly impressive debut graphic novel from Finland, with music, love and relationships and some added fantasy/horror elements, in a mix that strangely works really, really well. Story/content:T...

    This story had so much potential. The idea was there but the execution was so so. I loved the last part of the book but there was no world building or anything to set up what happened. There kinda was...

    So, first off, the art in this was gorgeous. I love the emphasis on curves in the linework, and the layering involved in the coloring -- it was probably arduous, but the pages were luscious as a resul...

  • Aurora Dimitre

    Two things really, really stood out to me in this graphic novel - the art (my God the art) and the characters. I'll start with the art, because it was just gorgeous . Full-color, with sometimes ful...
