Editor’s Dispatch: Musical Pairings

By Brendan Burford

This just came to mind, and admittedly, I am sort of dashing off my post this week, but does anyone else have musical associations with any particular comics? I intend to write a more in-depth post about this in the future, and it would be great to do so with the input of all you faithful readers out there.

An obvious springboard here is the piano stylings of Vince Guaraldi — everyone associates that guy with PEANUTS. But beyond the obvious, what’s your associations? Do you somehow see BLONDIE in your mind’s eye when you listen to (fill-in-the-blank-band) or hear The Kinks when you read (fill-in-the-blank-comic)?

Let’s hear from you on this. And if I don’t hear from you, you won’t get to hear some of my own music/comics associations. Pressure’s on!
