By popular demand, here is the ever-growing, ever-changing set of playlists I have complied for the comic and its characters.

I’ve done my best to link to the songs online, so you can listen to them even if you don’t own them.  (If there’s a problem with any of the links, please let me know and I’ll fix it.)   New additions are listed in white.

Certain playlists are also available to listen to on 8track, should you want to listen to a playlist straight through (links are directly under the playlist titles).  The catch seems to be you can’t skip around or put songs on repeat.  Also, I can only make playlists of 8 or more songs, so my shorter playlists can’t be added unless I find things to add to them.

There’s overlap between playlists, and things aren’t always in chronological order (or logical to anyone but me) but here it is.   Each song is credited to an artist, or at least to where it came from.  Additional playlists will be added as we get more characters.
