Legba's Juke Joint, Book 1, is the story of Reggie "Teddy Bear" DuBois, who goes down to the crossroads in Mississippi in 1939 to make his deal with the Devil so he can be the greatest guitar player that ever lived. And, as with every deal with the devil, it's sure to end badly.
Legba's Juke Joint is a 9 graphic novel series which explores the evolution of American music, from it's blues roots in the 1930's to today. Each book is about a different main character, in a different decade, making their own deal with the Devil.
Part of what makes this project so exciting is that it not only explores the evolution of American music, but each book is reminiscent of the comic book art of the period in which the story is set, so in essence it is also a look at the evolution of comic book art.
And as if that all wasn't cool enough, each book will have a companion album of original music "by the main character".
