Description

Living for Kicks is Omnibus's first fictional graphic novel, the tale of young Mod Spike Spellane and his attempts to hustle enough money in sleazy 1960s Soho to start a record label. Combining early Sixties Mod culture, Soho jazz dives, the Keeler affair and real-life British gangsters, this engrossing story reaches its climax during the infamous battles between Mods and Rockers on the beaches of southern England. Although entirely fictional, real-life characters such as Stevie Marriott, Georgie Fame, Christine Keeler, Johnny Edgecombe, Lucky Gordon, Duffy Power, Ace Kefford and John McLoughlin are skillfully woven into a riveting story, one which expertly captures the energy and excitement of 1960s Mod Britain.
