John Lee Hooker’s Legendary Life Comes to Comics

The John Lee Hooker Estate and Z2 Comics announce the graphic novel John Lee Hooker: One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, documenting the life of the legendary blues musician, told by Gabe Soria and Jarrett Williams and illustrated by eight-time Eisner award winner Kyle Baker, known for his work with Marvel and DC Comics, including his revival of Plastic Man, this is the official graphic novel document of one of the most celebrated figures in blues music!

Legendary blues man John Lee Hooker lived more life in one of his songs than the collective lifetimes of many. Spanning several decades of the American experience, John Lee Hooker: One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer tells three tales of Hooker’s storied life through the perspective of those who lived within his massive orbit, weaving textured and interpretative stories that rise to the lofty creative heights of his music and fall to the gritty reality of trying to thrive in several unforgiving eras. 

John Lee Hooker: One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer will be on shelves at comic, book and record stores respectively in spring 2022, just in time for the celebration of his 105TH birthday. This beautiful new work of graphic nonfiction will also be released in a special deluxe and super deluxe version, featuring an exclusive vinyl single, art prints and more, available only through the Z2 Comics website.
