    The recently-released Sweet Meloncholy graphic novel is simply amazing. I had very high expectations for this project when I heard about it initially, and of course, all of us melonheads got to see snippets and previews along the way that assured us that this was going to be a quality project. But I really had no idea just how cool it would be. Now that I have had some time to dig in to this book, here are some of my thoughts. . . First of all, I would like to say congratulations to Brad Weitz and Csaba Mester. This is the culmination of a long-term project. Both of you worked many hours to make this book a reality. You can see it in the illustrations, lettering, color, layout, and even feel it in the weight of the book itself - this was a huge undertaking. Not only was there a lot of work that happened to produce this graphic novel, but one can also tell that this book was put together with a love & respect for the band, their music, and the community of Blind Melon fans who will... More > most assuredly appreciate their efforts. But it's not just your efforts that are to be commended. The final product itself turned out to be amazing - something that is more than just the sum of its parts. This is a chronicle of the complete story of Blind Melon told through a specific vision and narrative. Before reading any further, it should be noted that I am a graphic designer with a love for printed publications, and I grew up with comic books. So excuse me if I geek out for a bit during this review. As a designer, I was actually taught to judge books by their covers, and this graphic novel has a very strong, impactful image to represent the entire book. It is immediately recognizable to Blind Melon fans as an illustration of Andy Wallace from the cover of the Soup album. And before I get into the guts of the book, let me just say - that is one healthy spine on this publication - 163 pages wide, to be specific! There is a foreward by Nel Hoon which gives additional credibility upon first opening the book. And the Table of Contents shows that the story is divided into four chapters. Due to the maximum number of words in lulu's review section (and my long-windedness), please read the full review here: http://www.blindmelonarticles.com/books/sweetmeloncholy.html< Less
