Why do they call it the blues?

Beats me, but Bluesman by Rob Vollmar and Pablo Vallejo promises to be one of the best, and most inmportant comics work this year, possibly ever.

It can (and should) be pre-ordered from the recent Previews catalog, and according to Alan, can be found at the Absence of Ink website.I can't find it there just yet, but I could be losing my mind.

There's plenty of stuff worth buying outside of Bluesman including the previously mentioned The Castaways. O and there's also Forlorn Funnies (which gave us another of the greatest works this year, Mother, Come Home. So, here's the link: Absence of Ink Comic Press - Home

Check it out, buy something, and if you find the Bluesman solicitation, let me know!
