Yellow Eyes Look Through Cuts

Phonogram: The Singles Club #7, by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson, and guest-starring Nikki Cook, Becky Cloonan, Andy Bloor, and Sean Azzopardi

The final episode of this run of the title about the people who use popular music to work magic. In this one, David K's pal Kid With Knife (an endearing skanger) becomes a temporary sorcerer and rampages around Bristol, largely using his powers for good rather than evil. I liked the Bristol locations. Is the club he goes to a real one? Wow, maybe I could go there next time I am in Bristol and meet all the characters from the comic. That would be awesome.

The back-up strips are entertaining enough. I liked the one where this guy has to be carried across a nightclub dancefloor – he could not set foot on it, as the DJ was playing Kula Shaker. The Phonogram people have a bit of a thing about Kula Shaker, it makes me feel almost sorry for that now largely forgotten band.
