LAKE IMAGO, by Eddie Wright and one of our favorite artists Jamaica Dyer, is a powerfully haunting coming of age comic about tragedy, grief and depression told in personal moments and a particularly bleak familial road trip. We’re thrilled to get to do this event for such a fantastic new work, and cannot recommend it more highly! Surreal in the vein of Charles Burns‘ brilliant BLACK HOLE, quietly personal like Sofie Campbell‘s WET MOON, and emotionally arresting like Ulli Lust‘s TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE or Craig Thompson’s BLANKETS. Here’s a fantastic review and the digital version is here so you can find out for yourself before the analog version is here on the 16th.
But it wouldn’t be Record Store Day without a record, right?
The Isotope also proudly presents the release of an original LAKE IMAGO Soundtrack EP created just for this event by heavy space drone band SPACE:1666. This EP was recorded in the appropriately effects-pedal-laden Outer Sagittarius Studios and will be released on a limited edition dead-format CD3 as well as a day-and-date digital release featuring music inspired by the book and all new art by Jamaica Dyer.
