    An early ad for Matt Wagner's Mage: The Hero Defined featured the lyrics from "Town Called Malice". When he actually got around to publishing it about a decade later, Kevin Matchstick and Joe Phat trade lines from the song after they take down some monsters.

    There's also the Venture Bros episode where The Monarch and Dr Mrs the Monarch move to a town called "Malice". It's a gated community for supervillians. The Monarch makes a comment about it.

    No, I remember back in the mid-90s in Same Bat Channel (a chain of stores in the Northeast back then) at the mall, there was a CD of music.

    Found the title of it: Shadowhawk: The Secret Revealed (A Comic Book Soundtrack)

    Only one website I found for it. To be honest, back then he wasn't a popular hero that I thought the CD was something locally produced.

    Here is a copy of the cassette on eBay:

    For music, it's very much referential, it only works if I know the song and have actually heard it. If it's some lyrics you just wrote, then it doesn't work for me.

When he started doing this I really didn't feel any of it and, like with LotR, I found it a slog to go through all of "Griffin's" songs that took up whole pages. However, then we met Griffin Silver, then we got see some of his performances, and suddenly I was able to get a feel for his music. He was a Bruce Springsteen style rocker, getting a bit on in years and maybe edging into his "Greatest Hits" phase, but still loving the feel of performing and still putting out new music. After I understood that I could again begin to hear how the music might have sounded, and suddenly it wasn't a pain to read his song pages because I could insert the drums and guitars (Poor, poor Griffin. We lose all our rockers too soon).

    What seem to make the difference between word balloons with notes in them and making a reader "hear" the song is when the writer takes the time to make the reader understand what kind of music it's supposed to be, so they can fill in all the chords themselves.
    I was gonna say I'm shocked no one has brought up Griffin Silver from SIP. Terry Moore did amazing things incorporating Music in SIP, but none moreso than his inclusion of Griffin in the narrative.

    Absolutely, he managed to really integrate him into the story and the universe (I actually wish I could go to one of his concerts, it seems like it'd be a great show). I always found it interesting that he seemed more "real" to me than Brad, the supposedly more important character; he just seemed so much more alive (That and Brad was always written as something of a jackass, but that's neither here nor there).

    Coveredinbees, I'd actually forgotten about that Beyonce sing-a-long, which was a shame because that scene was epic in previously unimaginable ways. I now really want to see that get an inclusion in the new Batgirl series, it's too perfect not to do.
    Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs, but if you sit back and relax you get a heck of a ride.
