Songs by the iconic English alternative rock band are now being turned into comics by an American publisher.

Shawn Demumbrum, an Arizona-based comics publisher, is bringing songs by erstwhile alternative rock band The Smiths to life in an anthology of comics titled Unite and Take Over: Comic Stories Inspired by the Smiths. Demumbrum’s anthology, expected to be published by November of this year, transforms songs such as Girlfriend in a Coma and How Soon Is Now? into comic-book stories. Each tune is slated to be interpreted as a four-to-eight-page comic strip. Demumbrum explains:

As a teen in the 80s, one of my favourite soundtracks was the Pretty in Pink soundtrack. While training for cross country, I played the cassette over and over on my Walkman as I ran. There was always something about the Smiths’ Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want. It tapped into my teenage psyche, a combination of loneliness and yet hopeful optimism, that only Morrissey’s vocals seem to capture.
