“Punk Life Crisis” is for anyone who can’t fit into their old black metal T-shirts anymore. It’s a story of one last chance to be cool and rock out in a band:
Simon is approaching 40. His old-time punk friends have become f*king breeders and suburbians. Their fight against capitalism has been put on hold, while the »shit system« provides them with social care and child support. No more concerts and pub crawls.
Only Simon is still dreaming of becoming a lead singer in a punk band before it’s too late. One night at a metal karaoke concert he’s asked to join a new band.
Right now, Simon is working on his next graphic novel scheduled for publication in late 2022.
