Gotta new comic up at VICE, head over there to read the whole thing. Enjoy the ever-complimentary comments while you’re at it.

The comic was inspired by the “Henry and Glenn Forever” book, which has grown into a group art show happening here in L.A. which opens this Friday night. Stop by and check out my piece in person if you get a chance. Here’s the info about the show:

Henry & Glenn Gang Bang
Book Signing & Art Show
February 18-27
Opening reception, book signing & live performance: Friday, February 18th; 8PM

LA LUZ DE JESUS GALLERY, 4633 HOLLYWOOD BLVD. LA, CA 90027

“Henry & Glenn Forever,”a comic book by the Los Angeles art fraternity Igloo Tornado that contemplates the question, “What if Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig were a little more than ‘friends?’” has become a cult phenomenon in the comics and music scene since its release in April. Now, Igloo Tornado members Tom Neely, Gin Stevens, Scot Nobles and Levon Jihanian have put the question to more than a dozen other artists, who will offer their own answers in a group show opening Feb. 18 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Hollywood. Participants include critically acclaimed L.A.-based artist Eric Yahnker, low-brow superstars Coop and The Clayton Brothers, and alternative cartoonists Ed Luce, Johnny Ryan and Kaz as part of a diverse group of artists, cartoonists and oddballs.

The Igloo Tornado will also debut their own new Henry & Glenn-themed works in the show and be on hand at the opening to sign copies of Henry & Glenn Forever. Black Fag and Misfits cover band GLENN will perform live.

“Henry & Glenn Forever” has sold more than 30,000 copies since its release by the Microcosm imprint Cantankerous Titles less than a year ago. What started as a joke scrawled on a bar napkin has become a bona fide hit, spawning dozens of print and online write-ups from outlets including Spin, National Public Radio, MTV, LA Weekly, Decibel, Maximum Rock’n'roll and Razorcake. While the comic book has reportedly inspired outrage from singer Glenn Danzig and indifference from former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins, the lighthearted send-up of two of punk’s most macho icons has gained thousands of fans.
