A perfect sizable coffee table anthology of comics inspired by THE Tori Amos.
Comic Book Tattoo takes you on a visual journey through the story telling nature of Amos' lyrics of the fantastical kind. Your adventure with Amos begins by boarding the "Flying Dutchman" which demonstrates deliberately and directly the link between the words of her song and the sequential artisary of the comic in a sort of 101 How to read Comic Book Tattoo way.
Never the less, I find myself enthralled in the magic of it. And the real magic is not how the book makes time disappear, but in how an artist illustrates with ink and colour what Amos paints with music. There is this little tug in me that makes me feel as if I am missing out on something by not listening to her music, or even just one of the 50 songs that are boxed and lined on these pages.
I believe this is the first time I have read essentially a comic book that coaxes me to listen to an artist of the music kind. Sweet sounding words and tempting imagery always does the trick and with that, Comic Book Tattoo can be considered an enchantress.
