27: A Comic Anthology
Originally announced as a Kickstarter project by Red Stylo Media, lead by Enrica Jang, 27: A Comic Anthology was an open call for submissions from writers and artists to create 8-page entries based on the life or music of a member of the infamous “27 Club”, a category of musicians who have all passed away at the age of 27. Mira once again wrote a script (Angel Rock) and collaborated with John “JAR” Rodriguez, who illustrated the entry. In addition to her own entry into the anthology, Mira also did colors and letters for Cut My Skin It Makes Me Human, created by Slobodan Jovanovic & Robert Grove.
Stars burn hot, bright and then go out forever, but their light shines on for ages after. Members of the “27 Club” reached musical stardom early in life and died too young– specifically, the tender age of 27. Some of the club’s more famous members include Jim Morrison (The Doors), Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), and Amy Winehouse. A rocking crew of comic artists and writers were challenged to take their favorite song or member of the 27 Club and use their music as inspiration for new and original comic stories and vignettes. 27 is slated for release in October 2015.
