Nick Abadzis’ “first magnum opus” Hugo Tate officially goes on general release in the UK and Ireland this week. With a few copies popping up already in Britain and Ireland’s best comic shops, readers have been getting in touch to let us know how much they’re enjoying the collected classic. Originally appearing in seminal cross-cultural comics mag Deadline, we thought it would be only appropriate if Nick provided us with a soundtrack playlist for the book.
From the Battle of the Planets theme to Public Image Limited, from Phyllis Dillon to Nick’s admitted hero Iggy Pop, this playlist is not to be missed, much like the book itself. Those of you with Spotify can access the eclectic playlist here. Or alternatively, the whole thing can be streamed below.
Available in US and Canadian comic shops next week, Hugo Tate is currently available in the Blank Slate webstore for £14.99 now. As a special treat, all web orders come with a signed bookplate while stocks last.
