‘Rue Britannia’, ‘The Singles Club’, and ‘The Immaterial Girl’ collected into ‘The Complete Phonogram’ Hardcover Edition this April

“There’s a lot of deceptively light-footed complexity in much of Kieron’s writing—I’m thinking now primarily of his weirdly symbiotic and merged collaborations with the excellent Jamie McKelvie, where you can see a dance-like or musical sensibility creeping into the storytelling, a kind of fluorescence…”Alan Moore

Select praise for PHONOGRAM:

“A beguiling, funny comic with bleakness round the edges.” —Pitchfork

“This is Awesome!” —Spin.com

Phonogram is pure pop art.” —Plan B Magazine

“Captures pop epiphanies in clean, gorgeous lines.” —The Guardian

“There’s a lot of deceptively light-footed complexity in much of Kieron’s writing—I’m thinking now primarily of his weirdly symbiotic and merged collaborations with the excellent Jamie McKelvie, where you can see a dance-like or musical sensibility creeping into the storytelling, a kind of fluorescence… The most distinctive things about [Phonogram] are its relentless progressive momentum and the sense of effervescent color—probably hot pink.” —Alan Moore

“A heart-racer and a heart-wrencher.” —PopOtiq

“The fact that they have made a world, that by all accounts should feel niche, actually feel so universal and life affirming is magic in itself.” —Eddie Argos of Art Brut

“Reading Phonogram is like having a conversation with a friend who’s smarter than you, the kind that keeps spooling out until the pub starts to close around you.” —Comics Alliance

“McKelvie is a master at using a clean and economical art style to create organic, living characters. Wilson’s colors flesh out those pencils handsomely, while the flat tones used in the opening flashback create a distinct boundary between eras. And that homage to A-ha’s ‘Take on Me?’ Great stuff.” —IGN
