Heavy Vinyl, Vol. 1 (Hi-Fi Fight Club) Reviews
lovely art style, great diverse cast of kickass girls and an interesting concept
its definitely entertaining to read
the pacing of the first volume is a bit off for me personally, theres a lot happening in 4 issues that might have been better if it had been spread out a bit more, but its still fun
This graphic novel has compelling art, along with a story line with everything you need to make a good story: music, mystery, badass girls, the struggle to figure out who you are, and a little romance. Would definitely recommend.
Fight Club, meets High Fidelity, meets Josie and the Pussycats.
It's my second super-diverse disappointingly generic Scooby-Doo adventure in a row. (See Moonstruck, Volume One: Magic to Brew) An appealing cast of characters goes to waste in a silly fight club that also fights crime and a convoluted missing person story that doesn't even wrap up in the first volume. Not sure I care enough to find out how it ends.
Heavy Vinyl (formerly Hi-Fi Fight Club) is a graphic novel (for now it's a stand alone but it will probably continue) about a group of teens (and 20s) that works at a record store but are also members of a fight club that fight injustice.
Chris is the 'new' employee and the story is told from her POV mostly. Then there is Maggie, Chris' crush and Dolores, Chris' 'archnemesis' and Kennedy, who kicks ass. There is also Irene, their boss.
Chris is very insecure, anxious, sucks at lying and trying to ...more
Cute art, cute story, cute girls [that have cute crushes on other cute girls], and awesome music - What's not to like? This is definitely a fun idea for a series and I can't wait for volume 2!
Also I sent this page to my friend with the caption "i would be offended by the design of this girl asking where the new placebo album is if it wasn't so spot on" and she replied "lmao who let damien bloodmarch in here" so new headcanon accepted basically ;)
Everything in this feels like lip service. The '90s setting, the diversity, even the plot. None of it has any thought or reason behind it. Black girl likes Lauryn Hill, TLC, and hip-hop. Hispanic girl isn't Hispanic until she gets a sudden call from her Papi in the final issue. Everyone's super chill about having two dads or being a gay teen, when that's very much not how the '90s was (It's sadly not even how *now* is).
If this had been a fluffy, Empire Records-type tale of life working at a musi ...more
WOW ??? i loved this so much ??? cute girls cute art and music?? also they are fckn vigilantes??? damn
