Front Cover
Absence of Ink Comic Press, 2004 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 80 pages
This story, structured like a traditional twelve bar blues song, with three sections each made of four chapters, follows blues musician Lem Taylor’s harrowing journey across Arkansas of the late twenties, hunted for a crime he didn’t commit. In volume one, he and his blues companion find a gig in a ‘juke’ outside a small town. Their music takes it by storm leading even to a well connected man offering a recording session. However, that night, they accept the invitation of two ladies to go home with them, a fatal mistake, as one of the ladies’ lover, a white man who happens to belong to a powerful bootlegging family, shows up unexpectedly. The result is a triple murder with only Lem and his lady friend left standing. Formerly from Absence of Ink Comic Press, now exclusively from NBM.
