Phonogram: The Singles Club #5

I think that this volume of Phonogram has hit on the winning formula: eschew plot and focus on characterization. In this issue, the spotlight is on Laura Heaven, who was a bit of a wallflower in the first issue, and hasn't really been seen since.

Now we get a lot more insight into her character (which isn't all that nice), via a string of quotes from Long Blondes songs (which mean nothing to me).

It's a nice, well-packaged little story. The back-up works well too. It's nice to see another issue of this - I hope that the remaining two aren't too far away...
