An upcoming release from Avery Hill Publishing,"Zebedee and the Valentines," takes place in 1982, "Somewhere," around the suburbs of Southern England. Zebedee is an egocentric lead singer for the titular band and the book follows his clash of personalities with fellow bandmates as a chance to compete in a massive, "Battle of the Bands," event brings with it both opportunities and conflict. The plot is solid and relatively straightforward in its telling of a, "Small band tries to make it big," yarn, but what really caught my attention is Bailey's artwork.
"Zebedee and the Valentines," is due to be released in the United Kingdom on September 10th, 2020; its release date for America is October 14th, 2020. Go ahead and preorder your copy at your local comic shop/bookstore/online retailer today. If you like quality comics you'll love this book!
5 out of 5 stars.
Note: I am on the press list for Avery Hill Publishing and they send digital review copies of comics often, this was one of them that was provided for free in hopes of/exchange for a review
