Bundled Extra: Nobrow Announces US Release For Moonhead


Tucker Stone wrote CR this morning to announced the widespread US availability of Moonhead And The Music Machine, by illustrator and animator Andrew Rae, from publisher Nobrow Press. The work had previously been out for UK audiences, but is on a different schedule for the US -- it ships today to American retailers, and is also available via order.

Stone describes the work in his PR as follows:
Moonhead And The Music Machine, the latest release from Nobrow, introduces us to Joey Moonhead, a normal kid with a moon for a head. He’s got problems just like any other high school kid: bullies, crushes, class, and he wants to win the school talent show so that he can prove to everybody that he’s more than just the kid with a moon for a head – he’s a star.

Joey Moonhead is a loveable teenage outcast, and Andrew Rae brings his poignant underdog story to life with beautiful, loud colors and a vibrant mixture of gawky teenage drama and psychedelic daydreams. Rae populates the world of Moonhead And The Music Machine with a wealth of delightfully offbeat characters and a heartwarming understanding of music’s innate ability to transform us.
Rae is a member of the Peepshow Collective whose clients include Wired and the New York Times.

The book is 176 pages in hardcover, full-color. It retails for $24.95.
