Review | Heavy Vinyl, Vol. 1: Riot on the Radio

Film and TV director Carly Usdin (Suicide Kale) teams up with breakout artist Nina Vakueva (Lilith’s Word) for a new series that’s music to our ears! New Jersey, 1998. Chris has just started the teen dream job: working at Vinyl Mayhem, the local record store. She’s prepared to deal with anything—misogynistic metalheads, grunge wannabes, even a crush on her wicked cute co-worker, Maggie. But when the staff’s favorite singer mysteriously vanishes the night before her band’s show in town, Chris finds out her co-workers are doing more than just sorting vinyl… her local indie record store is also a front for a teen girl vigilante fight club! Collects the complete limited series.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I didn’t know much about this one going in, but knew there were 90’s references and it was set at a record store, so I was sold. This was so fun! I loved the twist as to what happens at the record store and all the relationships that were forged and grew on the pages. The art style was fun, expressive and full of color and yes, the time frame was right up my alley. I will definitely be checking our more of this series to see where the story takes us!

Happy reading!
