Synopsis

The creators of Hate and Love and Rockets team up for an all-ages rock’n’roll extravaganza!

Move over, Josie & the Pussycats!

At last, a girl-centered comic book that actually appeals to girls (and even their parents)! Co-created by comics living legends Peter Bagge (Hate) and Gilbert Hernandez (Love & Rockets), Yeah! is a unique masterpiece of all-ages fun. Originally published as a nine-issue comic book series from 1999-2000 by DC’s Wildstorm imprint, this all-ages gem (approved by the Comics Code Authority, no less!) is collected here for the very first time.

Krazy (vocals and guitars), Honey (drums) and WooWoo (keyboards) are the members of the pop band Yeah! They’ve achieved intergalactic superstardom on every planet but their own (Earth), where they live in anonymity and suffer indignities in their home of suburban New Jersey. The girls struggle with bad gigs (struggling to win $200 amateur-night contests despite playing to packed crowds of adoring fans on Uranus), aliens who have crushes on them, and rival boy band The Snobs.

Separately, writer Peter Bagge and artist Gilbert Hernandez have well-deserved reputations as creators of some of comics’ most complex female characters, and in Yeah!, they have collaborated to produce a pop-culture, sci-fi, mainstream comic that finally offers a riotous alternative to the leaden, out-of-touch humor of Archie Comics. 208 pages of black-and-white comics

The idea was a bit strange from the beginning: two legendary creators known for their adult slice-of-life portrayals—Bagge (Hate) and Hernandez (Love and Rockets)—teaming up on an all ages, lighthearted, girl-friendly color comic for DC's WildStorm imprint back in 1999.
