High Fidelity for a new generation. Living in Toronto has its challenges, especially when duct tape-wielding landlords and ever-encroaching developers are involved. For Lenny, the antidote to the chaos at home is the realization of a dream: opening a used record store with a carefully curated selection. He works hard, sneaking bites of cold noodles between customers, and politely tolerating even the most ridiculous requests.

Unfortunately, Lenny's store isn't much more stable than his home life. Rent is sky-high, and sales are sporadic. Some days, he's run off his feet while other days, smashing unwanted records is the only way to pass the time. Hope arrives in the form of an old press release tucked away in the sleeve of a record. The discovery launches Lenny into his next quest: to track down the long-lost record collection of Hot Walter, an elusive and aging disco DJ. But will it be enough to save Lenny's Vinyl Boutique? On Vinyl is a love letter to vinyl and an exploration of the role nostalgia plays in the decisions we make.

Lorenz Peter was born in Montreal and grew up in Northern Alberta. In 1990 he left school to pursue cartooning and music. Lorenz has released five full length graphic novels since then: Chaos Mission, Dark Adaptation, Side Effect, Grey Museum and his newest, On Vinyl. In 1997, Lorenz joined Corpusse, forming a power duo that would influence Toronto's underground art rock/noise scene for nearly 15 years and record 3 albums together. Lorenz lives in Toronto where he continues to work independently on comics, illustrations, and musical acts Processor and Off World.
