Talking Comics: ‘Sing No Evil’ Rock n Roll Variant Art Contest


Talking Comics: ‘Sing No Evil’ Rock n Roll Variant Art Contest

Hey everyone! We’re nearing the close of 2015, and thought it would be fun to end the year by giving you all the chance to win something awesome! We’ve got 3 brand-new copies of JP Ahonen & KP Alare’s mind-bending and hyper visual graphic novel ‘Sing No Evil‘ up for grabs, and one of them could be yours! All you’ve got to do is create an original Rock n Roll Variant Cover!


Twenty-something guitarist Aksel stutters when he sings, and the latest reviews say he has the voice of a crow with throat plague. That’s not a compliment, even for the avant-garde music his band Perkeros plays. Aksel is having a hard time keeping the band together, stopping his girlfriend from kicking him out, and not getting eaten by his drummer (who happens to be a cranky brown bear). There are also the rival bands that Perkeros find themselves in battle with to save the city from supernatural forces set loose by ancient music. The key to it all could be in the music Aksel hears in his dreams—if it doesn’t drive him mad first. With a visual soundtrack that blasts off the page, Sing No Evil is a wild ride through otherworldly dangers and the power of pure rock’n’roll.

What’s that? You want to know how you can enter for your chance to win? Well then, here’s the score!
