To anyone interested in Woody Guthrie, I highly recommend reading Woody Guthrie And The Dust Bowl Ballads by Nick Hayes. The story is a fictionalized telling of Woody’s life and the way Hayes captures it borders on poetic. The accompanying sepia-toned artwork is as mesmerizing as a dust cloud.
Below are a few of my favorite panels.
Also, check out this video of musicians providing Hayes with a hard-driving soundtrack while he’s working on the graphic novel.
We are not beat.
