The “Henry Rollins hearts Glenn Danzig” meme predates the internet — I remember giggling over the idea of R&D shacking up back in the early ’90s. But it’s even more timely in the light of California’s high-profile gay marriage debates. I’m assuming Rollins and Danzig are both still residents of the state.
Apparently, the back of the comic has a pullquote from Rollins that says, “Has Glenn seen this? Trust me, he would not be impressed.”
The premise of this Cantankerous Titles-released comic is explained at the front of the zine: “Henry and Glenn are very good ‘friends.’ They are also ‘room mates.’ Daryl and John live next door. They are satanists.” What follows is ultra-metal violence and cryfest diary entries, cringing self-doubt and mega-hilarious emo-meltdowns. Who knew Danzig was such a vulnerable, self-conscious sweety-pie? Who knew Rollins was such a caring spouse? Who knew Hall and Oates were so infernally evil—yet so considerate?
You can order this awesome title from Atomic Books for a mere 4 bucks.
