Check out the latest graphic novel from Abrams ComicArts, and you’ll see why the NY Daily News raves that Sing No Evil, ”reads like a fast, fun love letter to music.”
Twenty-something guitarist Aksel stutters when he sings, and the latest reviews say he has the voice of a crow with throat plague. That’s not a compliment, even for the avant-garde music his band Perkeros plays.
Aksel is having a hard time keeping the band together, stopping his girlfriend from kicking him out, and not getting eaten by his drummer (who happens to be a cranky brown bear). There are also the rival bands that Perkeros find themselves in battle with to save the city from supernatural forces set loose by ancient music.
The key to it all could be in the music Aksel hears in his dreams—if it doesn’t drive him mad first. With a visual soundtrack that blasts off the page, Sing No Evil is a wild ride through otherworldly dangers and the power of pure rock’n’roll.
Available today in hardcover, paperback, and as an ebook.

Since tonight is the beginning of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) and it’s traditional to eat apples and honey, I though I’d share this simple dessert recipe from the book, which was a favorite on my blog: an Apple & Honey Galette (or Appel & Honing Taart or Apfel-Honig-Galette!)
Enjoy and Shana Tova!
