    This book is unusual. It's a series of vignettes -- humorous, tongue-in-cheek vignettes -- showing the slimy and tarnished underbelly of that shiny glowing music industry we all see on the outside. Sure, we might know, or think we know, about some of the true stories that exist in the music industry. But do we really know how they affect people's lives? or social norms? Troy Chin has done a good job of showing us that. His comics continue to make me laugh, and a few moments are particularly poig This book is unusual. It's a series of vignettes -- humorous, tongue-in-cheek vignettes -- showing the slimy and tarnished underbelly of that shiny glowing music industry we all see on the outside. Sure, we might know, or think we know, about some of the true stories that exist in the music industry. But do we really know how they affect people's lives? or social norms? Troy Chin has done a good job of showing us that. His comics continue to make me laugh, and a few moments are particularly poignant, particularly those reminiscent of "real stories" (e.g. Sherylin Syn who bites the head off of toy doves and gets H5N1 bird flu virus -- hmm sound at all familiar?). Chin has arranged these stories by theme: Dreams, Ambition, Ideals, Passion, Tenacity. But I almost wish that he had arranged them in some other kind of way -- something that had a loose narrative. Or even if there was a single character who recurred in a few stories, that would have helped. This three-star review is mostly because I felt like the collection needed something more to tie it all together. But hey, I still liked it, and I would still recommend it, particularly if you have any kind of interest in the music industry, past, present or future.
