On her tumblr, Anya Davidson informally announced that her comic strip Band for Life will be collected by a pretty major publisher, but we’ll refrain from putting it in the announcement since it’s “informal.”
Band for Life was long serialized at Vice, but is now available in full on Davidson’s website, where it updates every Friday. it’s about the colorful, raucus and surreal adventures of a band of misfits in a world where some people sort of look like monsters. So yeah, Doug for a new generation.
Band for LIfe was nominated for an Ignatz, and her previous book, School Spirits, was published by Picturebox.
