Jimmie Rodgers Visits
This is a comics page I created in collaboration with Frank Young as part of our book proposal package for the graphic novel. The text comes from one of the actual recordings the Carter Family made with Jimmie Rodgers. It's a recording I never tire of listening to.
When Frank and I were given our page count by Abrams, we realized a lot of what we'd planned would have to be cut. The "Jimmie Rodgers Visits the Carter Family" adaptation was sadly removed from the outline to strengthen the story and keep the plot flowing right along. You won't see it in the book, but it may make an appearance later on...
