Eddie Argos (Art Brut) Gets Literary w/2 Books

Eddie Argos

Memoirs, graphic novels…. perhaps a dictionary one day, Eddie?

By Blurt Staff

The Image Comics publishing house is planning to publish a graphic novel by Art Brut’s Eddie Argos and artist Steven Horry titled Double D. As Pitchfork reports, it’s “about an overweight boy who discovers he can use his body fat as a superpower” (uh, yeah…) and will be published on Nov. 11. An accompanying soundtrack by the two along with Mark Heffernan and Grant Purser should appear via Post/Pop not long after the book.

We also learn that the second edition of Argos memoir I Formed a Band is due soon as well, of which we learn “the story begins with Eddie playing the vacuum cleaner on stage in his home town of Poole, and ends up with Art Brut recording Art Brut VS Satan with Black Francis in Salem, Oregon.” The book previously appeared this year as a limited-edition, with all 500 copies selling out.
