Netgalley Synopsis:
A lonely, metal-obsessed teen sends a heartfelt song to his missing beloved, only to find out that his music has traveled to the beyond, and re-broadcast to the entire city.

Only his best friend knows that he is really the mysterious rock god and anonymous legend known as "Doomboy." 

This was a pretty intense graphic novel. It is full of emotion and the nee to say goodbye. ID is a musician who has lost his girlfriend and now he has a hole in his heart. In order to fill it he feels like he must say goodbye to her to get her to forgive him for being a crappy boyfriend. As he plays for her others start to hear him and he becomes known as Doomboy, a rocker of sorts, whom everyone would love to meet and know. 

There were a lot of elements to this book, there was the loss, the music, the metal bands and friends and the violence that somehow comes along with them; there were also a lot of bullies and it added a weird storyline to go with IDs loss. 

I really enjoyed the art in this book. It was more like sketches and the details were sometimes magical as ID played his heart out for his lost girlfriend.   I really enjoyed this graphic novel, I liked the metal parts, I loved the emotion, and I really really loved the artistic style used to illustrate it all.
