Product Description

In one place for the first time and featuring new, never-published material, the illustrated story of the pioneering band, from Con Chrissolis's daily comic strip

Tales of The Smiths is a comic book retelling of the band members’ teenage years, before the group was famous, and includes fascinating digressions about their influences (the New York Dolls, Nico, Sex Pistols, NY punk, Patti Smith, etc) and the times in which they were growing up.

The story reaches its climax with the meeting of Morrissey and Marr, the formation of the band in 1982 and their first gig as The Smiths.

Con Chrisoulis is a Greek-Australian comic book artist who lives in Brighton. Having enjoyed a long career in indie and mainstream comics in Greece in 2012, he began publishing online a daily comic strip devoted to the early and unknown days of the seminal indie band, The Smiths.
