    1. Follows the well walked path of a Rock band mockumentary.You can feel a bit of the humour and tongue in cheek similar to that of This is Spinal Tap.The stereotypes and dynamics of the bands and groupies are well setup.The role of the camera crew filming the whole thing morphs throughout the story and its interesting to see the move from passive to active on their part.The band itself is perfectly over the top, it just wouldn't make sense otherwise.Added to all the above is the occult, statanism( [...]

    2. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/This is a hard one to review: I didn't enjoy reading any of it and thought it was a hot mess. But there are touches of cleverness (both in story and illustrations) that make it so hard to rate this low. The characters are thoroughly unlikable, the story jumpy/feeling so random in so many places, and the art is all over the place. I should have been the perfect audience for this and so I have to admit to some disappointment.Story: A v [...]

    3. "This Is Spinal Tap" where the band might really have sold their souls to the devil. Tony Parker's art is fantastic. It's a bit hard to care for anyone in the band because they are all a bunch of a-holes. I wish they had focused more on what was going on behind the scenes instead of how big of dicks these guys are. I felt like the end happened very abbruptly because all of a sudden in the last issue there's this big upheaval in the plot.Received an advance copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss in e [...]

    4. I liked the rock band documentary spoof. The art was great to look at, but didn't always clarify the action.

    5. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 2.5 of 5This graphic novel took me on a roller coaster ride of liking it, not liking it, liking it again, then not liking it again.The book takes on the quirks of rock music and publicity in the pop culture market during rock's hey-day - 1972. In what might be a cross between The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Motley Crue (who admittedly came through a decade or so later), and band called MotherFather is out on to [...]

    6. This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.---I've struggled for a couple of days now trying to figure out what I can say about this. It's all about the premise when it comes to this book (a collection of issues from a limited-run series). This is a comic about one of the biggest bands of 1974, Motherfather, on what could be their last world tour -- complete with a documentary crew, a gaggle of groupies, and a manager who could be the hybrid of Wilson Fisk and Colonel Tom Parker. Like [...]

    7. Ahahahaha (falls over laughing). I loved this. Read at white heat from the moment I unwrapped this (hooray for birthday gifts), it was unputdownable. Is that a word? It should be a word. Fine. It is now. Cornell takes the silliness of Spinal Tap, mixes it up with some of the more lurid stories about 70s superbands (I'm looking at you, Pink Floyd) and adds a liberal dose of good ol' cheekiness. While he's at it, he mixes in some outrageous French accents, seriously psychedelic mushrooms, and just [...]

    8. Hmmmmm. There are things I like and things that don't quite gel. It's a bit meta, a bit tongue-in-cheek, and a bit nostalgic; but the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. I imagine I missed some seventies rock references, but the ones I did get were a lot of fun. Interesting characters, but there seems to be some missing pieces in the plot, like skipped frames. You can figure out the way things are supposed to be happening, but it's a bit jerky. I'd say I liked it, but it didn't blow me a [...]

    9. Seventies rock titans, known for their flirtation with Satanic imagery, are startled to learn that yes, they really are serving the Devil. It's a wonderful concept, and some of the details are equally delightful. But too often the series is let down by erratic art, and a faux-documentary conceit which simply doesn't work.

    10. The excess of the Seventies taken to its logical endpoint, where it's all about the magick, and the magick is all about the music, and the music is all about the money, and wait, what do those symbols on the album cover mean?

    11. A docu-style story of the ultimate rock band and their tryst with the devil. Madness and genius standing in for fame and self gratification. Cornell and Parker drummed up a whole lotta love and mayhem as hubris takes on the band of bands.

    12. Weird but interesting, and the ending was quite satisfying. I love that the groupies and wives were so heroic. If Paul Cornell ever starts writing less horror, call me.
