Bluesman

BLUESMAN
Rob Vollmar, Pablo Callejo
Now collected into one stunning paperback!
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 starting from juke joints he appears in to across Arkansas of the late twenties, a black man hunted down for a crime he didn't commit. A racially intense story presenting a significant aspect of black history, its music, its social injustice.
Reviews
"A dramatic, exciting graphic novel, grounded in music history and the experiences of Black Americans."
-Foreword
"A moody masterpiece of fiction that is all the more compelling because every word of it could be true. [Uses] a broad visual palette that matches its dramatic variety of emotions."
-Teacher Librarian
"The stuff of legend blues" -Library Media Connection
"Takes you directly into the world of the traveling bluesmen of that era. The story is thoughtful and engaging, and the art work is amazing." -Thedevilsmusic.net
"In its knowing play of dark words and raw images, Rob Vollmar and Pablo Callejo's earthy graphic novel tells a tale worth hearing – and seeing. Bluesman, in the end, is a cathartic ghost story. Is there a better description of the blues?" -Laurel Maury, NPR
