This Damned Band

A new comic created and written by Paul Cornell, This Damned Band (advance review here) runs with a modern fantasy premise - that a rock band that talks about Satanism a lot actually gets in contact with something from beyond. Horror and comedy ensue, and the comic tells the story like a behind the music doc and retrospective box set.

“One of my favourite shows is Parks and Recreation. I love that specific use of the documentary mode, where one can get reactions to camera and see intimately the gap between what people say and what they mean. So, obviously, when writing a dark comedy about how mainstream the occult was in the 1970s, P&R was a major influence.”
