Metallica: Nothing Else Matters

 

The new graphic bio from graphic novelist cohorts Jim McCarthy and Brian Williamson. Brian Williamson’s dramatic art and Jim McCarthy’s razor sharp script capture the excitement and traumas of thrash metal’s most successful band ever. Distilling Metallica’s story into a jam-packed exciting voyage, in a thrill ride through 144 tightly written and deftly illustrated pages.

By far the most successful of thrash metal’s original big four, incredibly Metallica have now been performing for well over 20 years. Beginning with their initial underground success, The Metallica Graphic Novel takes in all the highs (the amazing commercial success of The Black Album, the nine Grammys, the over 100 million albums sold worldwide), the tragic lows (Cliff Burton’s death in a bus crash, the rehab for alcohol and substance abuse) and the controversies (the Napster lawsuit).

Counterbalancing rehab scenes with drug fuelled hallucinations with generous lashings of humour in the shape of bickering and ego-tripping musicians, Metallica’s overblown spectacle has never been so vividly evoked. Faye Coleman
