Synopsis: Nicky Marshall was saved by rock and roll – or so he likes to think.
An awkward upbringing and turmoil following his father’s suicide led Nicky to form a band called Ecstasy with his childhood friend Drey. The music takes them to Los Angeles, raw and gritty and teeming with personalities.
Nicky thinks they’re ready for stardom, but no one’s ever ready for stardom.
This first of four oversized issues begins in the 1980s, grows out of grassroots clubs & introduces Ecstasy to the world – whether it’s ready for them or not. From the brand new team of Holly Interlandi on scripts and Sally Cantirino on pencils & inks, this unique, heartbreaking story is about letting the music in… how it changes you and affects everyone around you, for better & worse.
“Interlandi & Cantirino take you from desperation to joy to self-doubt & back up again, a ride all creative people have dealt with.”
“If you are into character driven tales with music at its heart, then go out and pick up Last Song #1!”
“Heartfelt, ambitious & definitely personal… Last Song sparkles when it focuses on the relationship at its heart.”
“For those looking for something a bit different, Black Mask Studio’s LAST SONG #1 might be just for you.”
“Last Song feels like the introductory track of an EP, building to an emotional crescendo that will pound in your ears & heart.”
