Reviews

"Each of the book's twenty chapters is illustrated by a different artist; this variety invigorates the story in much the same way that Bowie's surprising work did. And each micro-narrative is supplemented by texts and stunning photographs, the former of which sometimes repeat details from the panels. David Bowie in Comics is a thorough, stirring graphic biography of the musical icon."--Peter Dabbene, Foreword Review
