Sounds of Your Name 1.0

Sounds of Your Name 1.0

by Nate Powell Author

Nate Powell's (Soophie Nun Squad, Walkie Talkie, Conditions, Wonderful Broken Thing, Schwa Sound, Playground Messiah) intricate black & white art focuses on the terrors and pleasures of growing up. Poignantly plumbing the existential angst of youth, he invokes great coming-of-age novels with only a few dozen words. This book collects his self published zines and comics dating back to 1992, his first two graphic novels (Tiny Giants and It Disappears), and new work. These stories build vignette by vignette into a rich tableau of lofty dreams and Deep South disappointment, car crashes and love letters, first kisses and four-tracks. Powell's work is a reminder of the persistence of wonder against all odds. ISBN 0-9770557-9-5

    Comments/Reviews

    I still find myself flipping through the pages of this book long after I've completed reading it, just to marvel at the complexity of the awesome drawings which Powell has created. It's the type of document whereby every time you pick it up you come across something you hadn't noticed before. If, like me, you've tended to gloss over comics in the past, this collection will set you straight on how effective the format can be, when done to a high quality. "Sounds of Your Name" strikes a great balance between punk rock idealogy and the illustrations which express this in the ways the printed word probably never could.
