Tales of The Smiths is a comic book retelling of the band members' teenage years, before the group was famous, and includes fascinating digressions about their influences (the New York Dolls, Nico, Sex Pistols, NY punk, Patti Smith, etc) and the times in which they were growing up.
The story reaches its climax with the meeting of Morrissey and Marr, the formation of the band in 1982 and their first gig as The Smiths. With an introduction by Simon Wolstencroft, the former drummer with The Fall and Patrol which featured Andy Rourke and Johnny Marr.
Following on from bestsellers GodSpeed: The Kurt Cobain Graphic (twenty thousand sales) and Gabba Hey! The Graphic Story of The Ramones (three thousand sales) this new addition to Omnibus graphic novel range will captivate fans of graphic novels and fans of The Smiths alike
