The Comic Carter Family
It all started when Jeremy Stephens came back into town from Texas last week, saying, “Look at this!” “This” turned out to be one of the coolest books I have ever read: a graphic novel about the Carter Family. Yes, the Carter Family in comic form.
I devoured the book and was left wanting more. I still can’t believe someone had the thought to combine 2 of my favorite things — the art of illustration and bluegrass-related American music — in such a fashion. And I was very impressed with the selected bibliography.
There is a blog kept by the book’s authors that you can visit HERE! The book can be found at Amazon, Arhoolie Records, and several other sites. You’ll have to see it to believe it. It comes highly recommended from yours truly.
