Hunted for murders that he didn’t commit, musician Lem Taylor endures a harrowing journey across Arkansas in the late 1920s. It’s a tale of dangerous women, devilish men, and racial anxiety with a surprising end.

“There's enough suspense and atmosphere here to make anyone grip their chair and feel transported.”--Los Angeles Times
“Callejo's woodcut-like style portrays the magic realist climax and documentary coda particularly brilliantly. Consider Bluesman a worthy shelf mate for such other historical graphic novels.”--Booklist
“Writer Rob Vollmar imagines a place rich in meaning and menace; Pablo G. Callejo's expressive B&W images give it vibrancy.”--Entertainment Weekly
“Bluesman mixes the mythic and dramatic with the nitty-gritty reality of the hard parts of life, just like a good blues song.”--Publishers Weekly
