I’ve been enjoying the offerings from the folks at Aggronautix in terms of their limited production releases known as “Throbbleheads” and since there is so much of a Metal and Punk focus to them wanted to share this press release about an item featuring the comic series “Henry and Glenn”. Check it out.
The Press Release:
The collected graphic novel of the greatest love story ever told features twenty short stories about the domestic life of “Henry” and “Glenn” as well as their neighbors “Daryl” and “John.” Digging beneath Glenn’s bricks in the front yard, Henry uncovers Glenn’s mother, freshly unearthed, moves in with him and Henry. Without giving too much away, [spoiler alert: Glenn has mommy issues] Glenn’s mommy issues come to the surface as she critiques his art, replaces his wardrobe, scrubs their dungeon, and recalls his childhood. Glenn tries to sell his signature to a UPS driver, takes a punch, and has some daydreaming adventures with a plunger. Henry, “a loud guy with a good work ethic,” shows his darker side and indifference to a fan as he drinks black coffee and bonds with Glenn over their distaste for their own bands; two men who suffer best alone together.
Henry and Glenn go to therapy together, battle an evil cult in the forest, and profess their love between dealing with repeated jealousy and normal relationship problems while trying to figure out if their soft-rocking neighbors are actually Dungeons and Dragons playing Satanists. It’s a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time. The book also features dozens of pin up art and full color covers from the original serialized series.
– Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever – Graphic Novel (256 pages, 6 x 9″ paperback by Rob Halford and Tom Neely)
– Henry & Glenn 1.25″ Soft Enamel Metal Plated Lapel Pin w/ single post black rubber backers (4 different pins displaying imagery from the comic series)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve only ever seen a few panels of this comic series but its riotous and I must get a copy of this book for site overview. Hey, we do review comics over here on the site after all. Then there is the enamel pins. I LOVE those things and used to have a jacket covered in them. After losing far too many irreplaceable ones over the years I stopped wearing them and now keep them in window box as a piece of personal Rock art. This set is very limited so hit the Aggronautix website and order before you are left out in the cold. Do you like this stuff? Let me know in the comments section below.
