Dress Like a Super Hero!


Scottish indie pop artists Belle & Sebastian are making their first foray into the world of comic book in a very different approach to the comics anthology in Image Comics' Put the Book Back on the Shelf: A Belle & Sebastian Anthology GN.

Bursting out of Glasgow in 1996, Belle & Sebastian took the U.K. by storm, going from an independent underground sensation to placing an album on the British Top 20 in just two short years. With their infectious brand of indie pop, Belle & Sebastian has become a college radio staple in the United States. Thanks to its bittersweet love songs and fanatically loyal fans, the band has sold more than 2 million albums worldwide.

Inspired by the band, the 144-page book is a collection of independent comic creators and cartoonists putting their own spins on a cross section of Belle and Sebastian's songs, crafting stories inspired by the bandıs music, drawn from the band's entire catalog.

The book is targeted to come out a week before the band's new album, The Life Pursuit.
