The Carter Family are pretty important to the history of folk music in this country, and have been called “The First Family of Country Music,” but in today’s narrative they tend to get a bit lost, overshadowed by the story of June Carter’s relationship with Johnny Cash. David Lasky and Frank M. Young are working on a graphic biography to correct this oversight, chronicling their lives from birth through their careers and legacy.
They’ve been working on the book for a long time now—the idea first came up in 2002, and they started work on the book in 2008—and they’ve finally started posting full-color pages on their blog, where readers can follow the entire process of the book, from start to the eventual finish. Publication of Carter Family Comics – Don’t Forget This Song is tentatively set for 2012 from Abrams ComicArts.
