Someone once said, "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." J.M Dupont (author) and Mezzo (illustrator) have done just that by creating a gorgeous and entertaining graphic novel capturing Delta bluesman Robert Johnson's short life and long legend. Wine, whiskey and song... plus a little place you might know as The Crossroads. They're all in there. Essential for any lover of blues or art! - Roger Stolle, Cat Head


From the web: Exploring the stories and legends that surround his life and death — his childhood, his womanizing, his pact with the devil at the crossroads — Mezzo and DuPont have produced a fittingly creative and beautiful depiction of this most extraordinary life. "All the time that the tension builds, so too does the detail in Johnstone’s picture of a once-happy family ground down by sorrow...I would have been happy to read chapters and chapters more of this book." - Independent on Sunday.
