Henry & Glenn Forever by Tom Neely, once a pocket-size comic love story, is now available as a full-fledged graphic novel. The original was easily one of the funniest things we’ve ever laid our eyes on. For those not in the know Henry & Glenn take two of the most iconic men in the history of music, Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig and sets them up as star-crossed lovers, roommates, and best of friends getting into all sorts of wacky situations in a crazy world. Not just a silly spoof on the male-dominated worlds of punk and metal, but also a clever, smart, satirical look at relationships using these two admired legends and icons of hyper-masculinity. I think even Rollins and Danzig, as serious as they are, would be hard pressed not to laugh at this!
From the press release:
Henry & Glenn “Forever & Ever” Graphic Novel
256 pages, 6 x 9″ paperback by Rob Halford and Tom Neely
The collected graphic novel of the greatest love story ever told features twenty short stories about the domestic life of “Henry” and “Glenn” as well as their neighbors “Daryl” and “John.” Digging beneath Glenn’s bricks in the front yard, Henry uncovers Glenn’s mother, freshly unearthed, moves in with him and Henry. Without giving too much away, [spoiler alert: Glenn has mommy issues] Glenn’s mommy issues come to the surface as she critiques his art, replaces his wardrobe, scrubs their dungeon, and recalls his childhood. Glenn tries to sell his signature to a UPS driver, takes a punch, and has some daydreaming adventures with a plunger. Henry, “a loud guy with a good work ethic,” shows his darker side and indifference to a fan as he drinks black coffee and bonds with Glenn over their distaste for their own bands; two men who suffer best alone together.
Henry and Glenn go to therapy together, battle an evil cult in the forest, and profess their love between dealing with repeated jealousy and normal relationship problems while trying to figure out if their soft-rocking neighbors are actually Dungeons and Dragons playing Satanists. It’s a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time. The book also features dozens of pin up art and full color covers from the original serialized series.
