What if the Smiths' songs were comics? An American publisher is taking that idea to the printing-press, organising a new anthology that transforms songs such as Girlfriend in a Coma and How Soon Is Now? into comic-book stories. Each tune will unspool as a four-to-eight-page comic strip, with the whole thing published in November.
I posted this on Facebook / G+ and some people have noticed it but I thought it would be interesting to follow (if it takes off) this over time and hear peoples responses.
