When a punk rock small fish meets
a big opera shark, scales fly!
In a post-modern era torn between classical music and a cacophony of emerging underground music scenes, disabled high school music teacher and former opera diva Ms. B learns that disease will soon claim her voice.
She sets out to find one among her students in Period 3 worthy of learning her closely-guarded secret techniques before it’s too late — only to discover that the one person who has what it takes is Rio:
A chain-smoking, binge-drinking, class-ditching, punk rock bad girl who couldn’t give two fucks about the world of opera.
Two wildly different women bridge a chasm between classical and modern, gay and straight, tradition and rebellion, to share their passion for music…
A queer, intergenerational, and dis/ability-themed story for anyone who’s ever felt torn between two worlds.
My Life Is Overture, the debut first issue, is available now! (Con-exclusive variant cover while supplies last.)
As Ms. B struggles to whip her tone-deaf class into shape in time for the winter concert, she laments all the choices and circumstances that led from the spotlight to her thankless, small-town teaching job.
#2 Legato Legacy – coming soon!
After learning that time is running out for her voice, Ms. B hastily renews her search to find a student capable of mastering the secret techniques passed on to her by her mentor: a stern taskmaster of a voice teacher known to her students only as the Sphinx.
