    DescriptionAbstract of review: "The stylish cover image of larger-than-life singer Morrissey, confirms that Tales of the Smiths, is indeed a graphic biography of the eponymous Manchester band. Initially a daily online web-comic, it’s now collected in a thick paperback.

    Actually, Con Chrisoulis’ book might be more accurately called The Making of the Smiths, as whether by intention or exhaustion, it ends with the release of their first single. While this thwarts the urge to see personal highlights depicted, it’s ultimately a better story."
