Crossroad Blues book

Crossroad Blues book. Crossroads Blues: A Nick Travers Graphic novel is based on the original novel, Crossroad Blues by writer Ace Atkins who also wrote this graphic novel. It is released by Image Comics. It has a strong feel of a noir crime story, helped along by the black and white graphics by Marco Finnegan. I should note that Atkins’ Nick Travers mysteries aren’t ones I’ve read; it’s his Quinn Colson series and the Robert B. Parker Spenser novels that made me a fan. I must admit that I did not find the format satisfying. It's about the crooked crosses of wooden electric poles that edge the two-lane highway lined with farm-supply stores, barbecue joints, squat, cone-topped silos, and windowless, burned-out 1930s gas . .It's the deep maroon of a rusted tin roof above a weathered clapboard shack and the skeleton of a sun-parched tree, dead rooted in stagnant water. Or fallen cotton caught in highway gravel. The images were clear-caught in Nick's minds eye like a Technicolor stamp

An ex-football pro, Nick’s days are now as languid as the Big Easy itself-he teaches the History of Blues at Tulane and occasionally plays the harmonica at JoJo’s Blues Bar in the French Quarter.

From the Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist turned New York Times bestselling author ACE ATKINS, and artist MARCO FINNEGAN, comes a thrilling tale of crime and mystery that brings the history of the blues and the Mississippi Delta to life on every page. TPB. Please do NOT spoil content of NEXT issues.

This book is an excellent way to start this series (and Atkins career as a novelist). A mystery set in New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta region - looking for the lost recordings of legendary blues-man Robert Johnson (and of course solving the murder of a professor who was also seeking those recordings). Of course we meet Nick Travers, former NFL defensive lineman, currently Professor of the History of Blues at Tulane, and part time harmonica player at Jojo's Blues Bar.

The disappearance of a college professor investigating rumors of previously unknown recordings by renowned blues musician Robert Johnson, murdered more than fifty years earlier, leads football player-turned-blues historian Nick Travers along a dangerous trail as he seeks to unravel the dark truths behind an old mystery.
