"APART FROM ALL THE REST"
KEEPING IT REAL
With vibrant colours and detailed drawings,
Song of Songs is nice to look at, but what really
sets this indie comic apart from all the rest
is the T-Dot setting and hip-hop-influenced cast of
characters. "I wouldn't say it's a hip-hop comic, but it takes place in reality."
A slightly skewed reality. With issue five soon to drop,
average guy Isaiah and his friends have already encountered
the lumbering grey man-monster Bello and an army of
Asian "clones." And things are just starting to unfold:
"Some of it will unfold tomorrow, some of it
won't unfold until ten years from now." Let's at least hope
Isaiah rescues his kidnapped girlfriend from Bello
