Where people met with scary ends
By bear bite or by battle axe
It was super violent to the max..."
Avery Hill proudly presents a crossover of epic proportions as Canadian indie band, The Burning Hell, enter the Rachaelverse!!!
The project began one night when, after a couple of gin and tonics, writer/artist Rachael Smith tweeted musician Mathias Korn asking if he'd mind if she made a comic about one of his songs. He loved the idea and immediately said YES.
Not only that, but the pair then set on the idea of Mathias completing the circle by having The Burning Hell record a song about Rachael's graphic novel, The Rabbit (published by this very house)!
We are now delighted to present the 10" double A-side of The Barbarians/The Rabbit by The Burning Hell (also featuring a spoken excerpt by Rachael). It comes with Rachael's brilliant adaptation of Mathias' lyrics to Barbarians into comic form. There is also an option to add a copy of The Rabbit graphic novel.
Rachael Smith is an award-winning comic artist and writer. She has created many critically acclaimed graphic novels including Quarantine Comix, Wired Up Wrong, Stand in Your Power, Artificial Flowers and The Rabbit. Rachael has worked on Titan’s Doctor Who comic series and is currently drawing her new book Isabella & Blodwen.

Mathias Kom spends a lot of his time writing, recording, and touring with his band The Burning Hell. When he's not busy with that, he's sitting around a crumbling farmhouse in rural Prince Edward Island making stained glass, reading comics, thinking about what to eat, and wondering what he got a PhD in ethnomusicology for. Couldn't he have used all that time in a more productive way - like making stained glass, reading comics, or thinking about what to eat? What does anybody do with a degree in ethnomusicology anyway? He should have thought of this earlier. Currently, he's also planning his garden for 2022, and learning to play the euphonium and how to do a push-up.
