Dive Behind the Scenes of the Visionary Band That Changed Rock Music Forever
in August 2023.
Internationally renowned publisher Humanoids announced today a brand new graphic novel about one of the most influential avant-garde bands in rock music history, ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND STORY.
From multi-award winning artist Koren Shadmi (The Twilight Man, Love Addict: Confessions of a Serial Dater) comes the story of New York’s most iconic figures in the ‘60s—The Velvet Underground & Andy Warhol—and the loaded push-pull relationship that distorted their lives and echoed throughout popular culture. Available in stores August 22nd.
Many cultural critics would agree that Andy Warhol gave the Velvet Underground their break simply by bringing them under his wing. While they reached a certain level of notoriety and local celebrity in their time and have since acquired a lasting cult following, their initial success was in large part fostered by Warhol’s patronage.
But at the time, this relationship was muddied by a certain level of codependence and an insatiable appetite for fame, leaving Reed to ponder: Would we have succeeded without Warhol's influence?
"It's been an incredible experience diving into the origins of The Velvet Underground—one of the most influential bands in rock history—for ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES,” said Shadmi. “I hope you enjoy this glimpse into the bohemian culture of '60s New York, from Warhol's Factory to the notorious band that arose out of this unique era."
And now, please enjoy these exclusive, never-before-seen pages, compliments of Humanoids!
ALL TOMORROW’S PARTIES: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND STORY will be available in bookstores everywhere (bookshop.org) on August 22, 2023 and in comic shops (comicshoplocator.com) on August 23, 2023. Digital copies can be purchased from comiXology and other digital platforms.
