Baroque Pop, a Lana Del Rey Anthology Debuts at C2E2

Red Stylo Media will debut a new comic anthology inspired by the music of Lana Del Rey, at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2.) Baroque Pop is a carefully curated selection of short-form comics and illustrations celebrating love, loss, success, and change by comic creators who came together after finding mutual solace and inspiration in Lana Del Rey’s music. The collection is edited by comics writer, Mario Candelaria.

In keeping with the music theme, the book itself is printed at 7×7 inches to physically resemble a 45 RPM record cover. The project was funded earlier this year via Kickstarter, and is published under Red Stylo Media’s group publishing imprint, Red Stylo Press.

Baroque Pop features seven short comics and portraits by:

  • Chuck Harrison & Luke Marrone
  • Daniel Charles & Ashley St. Lawrence (with Scott Ewen)
  • Jennie Wood & Chris Goodwin
  • Enrica Jang & Jan Velazquez
  • Mario Candelaria & KasiaWiterscheim
  • Michael Lynch & Mira Mortal
  • Eric Palicki & Daniel Earls (with Scott Ewen)
  • Jim Towe
  • Adam Ferris (feat. Lesley Atlansky)
  • John Keaveney
  • Hoyt Silva
  • Fabian Lelay (feat Lesley Atlansky)

Red Stylo Media will be at C2E2, table N8 in artist alley. Their other titles inspired by rock music include, Angel With a Bullet, a collection inspired by the music of Tom Waits; Killer Queen, comics inspired by the discography of Queen; and The 27 Club, comics inspired by Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix and other music artists who died age twenty‐seven. The 27 Club was co‐published with Action Lab Comics and was nominated for a Harvey Award for Best Anthology in 2016.
