Drawings and comics by Carl Nelson

I got my copy of The Carter Family: Don’t Forget This Song yesterday. The book is a graphic novel biography of the legendary titular family, written and drawn by Seattle artists Frank M. Young and David Lasky. Publisher Abrams’ Comicart imprint has gone all-out in producing this book, even going so far as to include a CD of Carter Family music.  Early reviews have been very good, and you can find a copy in most comic shops and bookstores nationwide. Boing Boing has the first three chapters up online, if you need a preview. Also, as a full disclosure: I have a credit in the book for some background inking, and I’m very proud of my (admittedly small) contribution to this excellent piece of graphic story-telling. Take a peek.
