Jeffrey Lewis tells a folk fantasy comics tale for Black Yaya’s debut

You know Jeffrey Lewis draws don’t you? Of course you do. He’s been making merchandise for his own musical output since he first put audio on wax. You also might know that he’s a dab hand at telling surreal stories, both in musical and comic form. But what you perhaps don’t know is that Jeffrey’s a gun for hire (for the right bands) and can put together a hilarious, sci-fi inspired comics series for your latest release. That’s what he’s done for Black Yaya, the solo project of David Ivar. In it David battles various demonic beasts with his superior experience in the music industry, quashing their nefarious plans with anti-folk anecdotes. Take that!
