Henry and Glenn #1 sells 71,000 copies — to celebrate, here’s a preview of issue #2

9

Tom Neely’s HENRY & GLENN FOREVER is a reinvention—totally fictional—of two rock icons combined with some razor sharp cartooning and the result is a comics classic. A POPULAR, comics classic: Publisher, Microcosm’s Joe Biel, lets it drop in this interview that HENRY & GLENN FOREVER has sold 71,000 copies. Given that it costs a mere $6—the price of a fancy coffee in some parts of the country—for 68 pages of quality comicking, that’s not really a surprise. Also, as I always say, people like to laugh…and rock out!

The merriment has continued with a four issue mini-series called HENRY & GLENN FOREVER & EVER. The second issue just came out and we’re told that  #3 should be out in time for SPX, and #4 in time for the holidays.

Volume 2 Issue has work by Neely, Josh Bayer, and Mark Rudolph. This issue is $5 for 32 pages, and here’s a peek inside plus the regular cover by Neely and an alternate cover by Levon Jihanian:

  1. Let this be a lesson to self-absorbed rock jerks everywhere — somebody with a pen and a sense of humor is gonna pants you in the sequential art form and everyone can have a laugh at what a tool you are.
    Bravo Tom Neely and friends!

  2. @Cliff G, Henry is actually a pretty good guy, very intelligent, makes it his life more or less to travel and talk to folks and not be a douche. He was pretty cool about the comic when he found out about it a few years ago. If he ever does a speaking engagement in your town it’d be well worth your time.

    Glen, far as I know, not so much.

  3. Yeah, I’ve heard that Henry Rollins is pretty amicable about Henry and Glen Forever whereas Danzig is very irked by it.

    Which pretty much confirms what I wanted to believe about the personalities of the two guys in the first place.

  4. I made some typos (SURPRISE!) in the above and has some misinformation but it is corrected now. Please note this is issue 2 of VOLUME 2 a four issue mini series of more Henry and Glenn goodness.

    I met Danzig a few times, once at a signing at St Marks Comics where me and my then assistant Ruth were the only people there. AWKWARD. We both talked about bow much we liked Tezuka, so I can’t hate him entirely. Also went to his decadent Verotik parties at SDCC back in the day.

    Never met Rollins but seen him perform many times and he is great.

  5. I remember an issue of this a few years ago had a blurb from Henry that was something like “Has Glen seen this? Because I can guarantee you he will not be amused.”

  6. @Kap: You’re correct, I love Rollins (I listen his show on KCRW) and was only referring to Glenn. In my mind it seemed obvious, but that’s my mind, and well, there’s a whole lotta goofy stuff going on in there.
