“ Pop-rock band Fall Out Boy gains some new groupies, as the Dabel Brothers team with the group to produce an as-yet-unnamed comic book project. “
Is this really necessary Fall Out Boy? I suppose it is rather fitting as their name comes from a second rate non-character (which oddly reflects their music well…) from a popular cartoon (c’mon, I don’t need to say it right?). But a comic book series? What will the main plot points be? Pete Wentz struggles to get his emo swipe perfect every morning! The clearly more talented lead guitar/singer guy will finally get noticed! They will save the world from other emo/punk/pop rockers one battle of the bands at a time!
I hadn’t previously heard of The Dabel Brother’s so I am not really sure about this partnership from their end, but their most famous published comic, The Hedge Knight, was done with Mike Miller who is more than a little well known in the comic world (worked on series such as X-men, JLA, Adventured of Superman, Savage Dragon as well as heading several projects of his own…) which does intrigue me….I know that if this project does indeed go through, I will not be able to help myself from checking it out. Which is probably what they are hoping for from most people… Hopefully it is actually good enough to keep those people from relentlessly ridiculing it. I am aware of how pretentious I sound, and do not get me wrong, despite my distaste for Fall Out Boy’s particular musical output, I am actually interested in this pair up and give them slight props for exploiting a market previously left (mostly) untouched by other musicians.
(Now, I don’t want to spoil the article for you but my favourite line has got to be:”But for now, the Fall Out Boy announcement is enough to get fans to “Dance, Dance.” )
