An all new original graphic novel follow up to the award nominated Heavy Vinyl Riot on The Radio that reunites everyone’s favorite girl vigilantes to save the day by stopping Big Music from killing digital music in 1999SAVE THE INTERNET SAVE THE WORLD OF MUSICIt’s 1999 and Chris is living her dream working at Vinyl Destination by day and fighting for musical justi. That was super cute and fun More of a 45 but I rounded up because it makes my heart happy to see SO MANY gay girls in one place 3 This series has loads of sapphic rep POC rep POC rep lighthearted talks about serious topics like being ready for sex etc and jokes all wrapped up into a team of cuties kicking the patriarchy s ass and saving the world one mixtape at a time The 90s setting is SO much fun and I loved the addition of the Y2K subplot


Heavy Vinyl

Is and the gang to dial up 56k or pretty please of justice so they can save the day once againThe critically acclaimed team of writer Carly Usdin The Avant Guards and Russ Manning Award nominated artist Nina Vakueva League of Legends Ashe reunite for a follow up to Heavy Vinyl Riot on The Radio which was recognized as one of the 2018 YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Tee. Rating 4 Stars Heavy Vinyl Y2K O is a stellar continuation to the Heavy Vinyl graphic novel series centering around a group of girls in the 90 s who not only work in a record store but also are part of an undercover vigilante fight club Heavy Vinyl Y2K O full ARC review For a while I always felt Heavy Vinyl would always be a standalone which was fine but it felt like there needed to be adventures with the cast Chris Dolores Kennedy Maggie their boss Irene Then when it was announced that there would a seuel I was thrilled As with the first volume you can expect another musical mystery this time focused on the rise in a digital music website female friendships ueer rep of course 90 s references Without spoiling too much I will say you can really sense the growth to the bonds dynamic of friendship between them you can sense a laid back vibe to their friendship as they ve really gotten to know each other and the lovesupport they have for each other has grown even stronger One of my new favorite characters was Carmen who gets to know D after winning her radio contest their dynamic was super fun and hopefully if there s a volume 3 Carmen makes a return As for returning characters it felt like there was just page time dedicated to the main cast either together or just separately which was great They all have their own small arcs in the story and it was nice getting to delve into each Aside from mystery this novel also focuses on the girls navigating relationships which was a surprising yet phenomenal arc of this volume As for the art style I LOVED it It looks to be a softer art style compared to Volume 1 which definitely had a realistic look to it if that s how I can describe it Overall there s clean minimal backgrounds but definitely spotlights the important details as for characters there s such a great attention to detail and the rainbow of colors used is fantastic The action scenes definitely take up space on the page when necessary and the overall its detailed has a certain vintage style to it which was great too As with the previous volume Y2K O also features an inclusive cast Featuring a mostly female cast there s also a main character who identifies as trans Carmen ff relationships My only gripe is that the mystery had a lot of build up and you ll definitely be satisfied with how the team solves it but for me personally I was just expecting a bit The end also does feel a little bit rushed but overall it REALLY leaves you wanting to the Heavy Vinyl world I hope there ll be to this series 3 Heavy Vinyl Y2K O is a much needed continuation to a series set in the 90 s following a group of friends working in a record store who also happen to be part of a secret vigilante group as they solve a mystery on the brink of Y2k The plot is immersive fast paced and features great character arcs and the art is wonderfully detailed This volume will leave readers wanting from the Heavy Vinyl worldReceived an early digital copy via the publisher

Carly Usdin ë 1 REVIEW

Ce by night okay maybe during the day too in the world’s coolest teen girl vigilante fight club But when the girls of Vinyl Destination enter a Battle of The Bands – to investigate and of course win – they learn that the shadowy corporate masters of the music industry plan to destroy the fledging world of digital music and blame it on Y2K Now it’s time for Chr. That was really fast but also really enjoyable
