Praise for Reid Chancellor's Hardcore Anxiety:
“A throwback to alternative comics of the 1990s, this self-conscious autobiographical narrative positions Chancellor’s depression as a lens to examine how punk rock bands used their music to express their own members’ mental health struggles.” –Publisher’s Weekly
“...an eye-catching nonfiction graphic novel told from the point of view of a young man discovering punk and working through mental illness in America’s Midwest, Evansville, IN. It gives punks the most important advice of all: “You aren’t alone. You’re going to make it through alive.” –Music Connection
2020 marks the 27th anniversary of the death of GG Allin, the most notorious rock n roll artist of all time. He was loved and hated, but it was clear to everyone that he knew how to create a spectacle: defecating on stage, throwing blood at the audience, self-mutilation, and violent attacks. This coloring and activity book honors the best of his unique creative expression. Draw his tattoos, color his infamous onstage antics, engage with his unflinching takes on death, pain, and religion. Channel your rage through the page.
