"While Tom's bandmates are happy to play gigs for themselves at their own clubs, Tom aches for the next level. And as musicians are wont to do in magical fables, he meets a mysterious stranger with a simple offer: take an old trumpet, and just enjoy it, no exchanges. Whenever he plays it, the extraordinary music blows away his growling throngs of fans, and deadly mishaps start to follow. Tom may not have sold his soul for the music of the heavens, but he seems to have bargained away something much more serious"-- Back cover.

This was an extremely fun read, and for those musicians out there, it will be even more meaningful! The artistic style is striking and enrapturing, despite the absence of color; the story is strange, entangling the supernatural with the power of music, but interesting nonetheless. Although you by no means have to be a musician to understand the story, it certainly makes things more interesting. However, what I found most intriguing about this Graphic Novel, was that it comes with an accompanying sound track, which you can access via the link provided on the verso of the front cover. It's up to you whether you read, then listen, vice versa, or do it all at the same time!
