Will Potter from Cud has teamed up with Philip Bond to create a genius comic book pastiche about BritpopThis looks fab…Will Potter from Cud has teamed up with Philip Bond to create a genius comic book pastiche about Britpop. It’s centered around the imaginary comic-book exploits of the greatest Britpop band you’ve never heard of called Geezer. It’s funny and to the point and many of the faces it feel familiar.

You can pledge for it here.

Here’s the synopsis…

Martin Bland was in the right place in the wrong trousers, pouting in polyester when Suede were all the rage, sipping shandies as Oasis rattled Blur at Camden’s Good Mixer, touring the States with rival band Clobber, sexing up The Word, and hobnobbing with Tony Blair at Number 10. You must have blinked and missed him!

Follow the missteps of Martin Bland as he embarks on a make-or-break mission to become a cheeky-chap chart topper and style icon. If only he had the breaks, the talent, and the cheekbones…

Colliding with the famous, or face down on the pavement, wannabe Britpop star Bland and Geezer, his loyal band of underachievers, struggle against the odds in this comic-book tale of the also-ran. Geezer parallels the ups and downs of the early ‘90s British music scene, dips into real events with pathos and playfulness. Geezer will make you spit out your lager with its gags and break your heart with its lust for life and crushed ambition.
