The Yawpers Are Releasing a Comic Book, and Paste Magazine Is Previewing the First Ten Pages


August 8th, 2017 by bsradmin

You didn't expect a WWI France-set historical fiction/horror concept album to come with an accompanying comic book? Come on! The Yawpers' new album Boy in a Well does indeed, and Paste Magazine has a preview of the first 10 pages right here.

"The tale diagrams the evil, depraved outcomes that stem from altruistic organized religion, and no party leaves their best intentions unscathed. Wilkes’ artwork veers from the dark, monochrome hatching of Charles Burns to more exaggerated moments à la Robert Crumb. It’s unique and very, very NSFW."

The comic is illustrated by J.D. Wilkes of The Legendary Shack Shakers and is included in all pre-orders of the LP or CD.
