Jan Philipzig
Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever revolves around the fictional romantic relationship between two quite real and very manly men - heavy metal icons Henry (Rollins of Black Flag) and Glenn (Danzig of the Misfits). In case you don’t know them: they are tough hardcore types with loud voices and big muscles! Far too macho to actually be in any kind of committed and caring relationship, it is implied, let alone in a committed and caring relationship with each other...

Okay, so the book pokes fun at the hyp

This is a pretty fun and loving and sometimes profane and violent satire of hyper-masculine hard rockers Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig, as if to say, what if they lived together? Soft rock/pop duo Hall and Oates live next door and are Satanists. There's not much to the variety of stories that emerge, maybe 20 collaborations, and pin ups and covers. It feels like a mash up of the heart of alt comix and Mad Magazine with a punk/metal edge. I liked it just fine.

Here's some images from it:

Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever was hilarious!

It works on the premise that Henry Rollins, (Black Flag), and Glenn Danzig, (The Misfits), who are both the most manly men you can imagine, have a gay relationship. Hall & Oates live next door and are Satanists. Lemmy from Motorhead also shows up and shenanigans ensue!

I loved the humor and the silliness in this book. What I did not enjoy very much was the artwork, (at times-there were a lot of different artists), and the misspellings, (there were a few.

Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig as a gay odd couple. Hall and Oates live next door and are satan worshippers. This is comic gold. Must read. Lots of Mother jokes.

I freaking love this book. Yeah, I'm in it. So what? I can still give it five stars. I consider being invited to be a part of this a high point of my career. What an honor, and what a great way to pay homage to two utterly brilliant musicians. ...more
3.5 stars. A Danzing-worshipping ex-boyfriend introduced me to this comic.

Disclaimer: I am a rather rabid Henry Rollins fan. I love Black Flag and the Misfits, and while I am not a big fan of Danzig personally (or of his post-Misfits career), anyone who knows anything about him (and of his lack of sense of humour about himself) can see how he is just a sheer joy to poke fun at. Rollins and him are real-life buddies, so it was really a matter of time before something like this comic happened.

Oh, I used to love this so much. Well, to be strictly accurate, I loved the idea of it. Then I went back and read some more and... wow. That's a long distance, to stretch one single joke to snapping point.

Love never dies, though.

This is a rather one-note compilation of comics answering the question "What if Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins were a couple?" Some of the contributors misspelled their dialogue, others botched the artwork. Though this is thin and firmly two-star material, the book is goofy and fun. I enjoyed it and I want to see more from Tom Neely, since he is the original creator and his contributions are the strongest of the collection.

Additionally, the book has given me a new appreciation for The Misfits, w

This is an interesting graphic novel with a series of comic strips telling the story of gay couple Henry and Glenn.

It is based on a fictional coupling of Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig. It also features Hall and Oates as a satan worshipping couple living next door. I am not a rock fan so it is only through this comic that I realised that Henry Rollins is a musician and radio host among other things, and that Glenn Danzig is a musician/song writer and founder of punk rock/heavy metal ban

The concept is great: hardcore rockers Henry Rollings and Glenn Danzig in a gay relationship, with each of the stories presented in something like an almost "I Love Lucy" sitcom-like format. Neely's contributions are by far the most impressive. This was his idea, after all. With the other artists that he brings into the project, the results are hit and miss. Sometimes the stories are okay, sometimes they're rather flat, and at others they're as impressive as Neely's. ...more

So odd and so delightful. Absurd in the extreme, and fun, especially if you are a fan of Henry or know that Glenn doesn't have much of a sense of humor about himself. ...more

Never read original Henry & Glenn Forever though not necessary to get the gist.
Two iconic tuffguy macho muzikians are fandom fantasized as being a Bert and Ernie style couple.
Being familiar with other heavy metal and alternative groups lets you in on more jokes. Collection of work ranges in quality from spot on Little Lulu/Archie representations to crude sub-par Johnny Ryan Prison Pit scrawls. Bad is good. Chuckled at "Krom of Finland" graffiti. This graphic novel seems to pinprick poke at Glenn

I'm puzzled by some of these reviews. I think a lot of people impose their own expectations of comics onto Neely, when it's obvious he makes his own rules.

I'm a rock n roll nerd and I loved this book. It had me laughing until I was crying. The references and drawings themselves are hysterical. Maybe some of the people leaving bad reviews aren't getting the music and/or comics references? I don't know, but I have nothing negative to say. Neely's art is exquisite. Pages 42/43 I could stare at for

You know when you're just wandering around a shop and something catches your eye? And it looks the most ridiculous thing you've ever seen and you have to have it? Well, that's how I discovered Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever.

It's pretty much the most ridiculous and random thing I think I own, and... yeah. I honestly don't know what I just read, but... yeah...

This book was hilarious! Two aging punk icons who take themselves way too seriously deserve to be spoofed in such a genius manner. Plus, I know a few folks (Rafer Roberts, Jeremy Baum, etc.) who contributed pinup art for the anthology, which made it even cooler.

This is one of my favorite comic books. These guys are hilarious and their parody of these two guys is superb!
This never stops being funny to me. The stories in this volume were written by a few different people, so the quality does vary a bit, but the ones that are good are really good.

When the original Igloo Tornado versions of the mini comics came into the store I was working at, I loved them. The fictional couple of Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins's relationship being constantly imperiled by Glenn's overly-friendly Christian mom? Satanic rituals gone wrong? Hall & Oates trying to help out but only half-heartedly? It was fantastic. And that whole five star story is in here, along with all the beautiful homage variant covers they did.

It gets knocked down a star merely because

3.5 stars. This graphic novel with guest artists is about a heavy metal couple, and part of the humor was that they liked extreme things like satanism and nazis. That may have been a funny exaggeration once upon a time, but now with the nazis in the white house it is cringe-inducing. It barely gets mentioned, however, so maybe you can look past that and enjoy the wacky energy of the series. Homages to multiple comic artists.

Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever tickles the crap out of me, and this collection is amazing fun. The concept works not just because it’s absurd yet entirely plausible - it’s also because it springs from a legitimate sense of tenderness and generosity. This is not a cynical hipster hit job. And Hall & Oates as the cheerful Satanist frenemies next door is sheer perfection. Snowflakes that fall on my nose & eyelashes & Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever.

This is an irreverent, gritty, hilarious little gem. It's a delightful speculative fanfic that creates an absurd alternate universe of inside jokes and silly fantasies. When two cultural icons take themselves as seriously as Henry and Glenn, the imaginary foibles of their hilariously rendered doppelgangers are all the more satisfying to read. ...more

While the concept may be absurd, the execution is touching... poignant, even. I love it.

Some of the guest comics sucked though, tainting any potential for a perfect score.
