1st printing. Story and art by Mike Dawson. High Fidelity meets Wayne's World in this charming graphic memoir about a young man's life-long obsession with the rock band, Queen. All of us have had that one band with which we identify, the band that was always there for us during good times and bad. For Mike Dawson, it has always been Queen and Freddie Mercury. Not unlike "Bohemian Rhapsody," Freddie & Me takes readers on a rock-opera-like journey - from Mike's childhood in the UK, through high school in New Jersey, and into the nineties, when grunge ruled the day and Queen was terminally uncool. As Mike works to navigate the trials and tribulations that accompany the road to adulthood (with Queen behind him every step of the way), he must grapple with the fears we all find ourselves facing: committing to one person for the rest of our lives, pursuing our dream job, coming to terms with our familial responsibilities, and even facing our own mortality. With humor, sensitivity, and some wonderfully imagined appearances by Freddie Mercury, Brian May, George Michael, and Andrew Ridgeley (among others), Freddie & Me is... Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., B&W.
