A dozen years ago, I decided to do my very own Elvis comic book or as they are now so lovingly referred to as “Graphic Comics” or “Action Comics”. I chose one of the most popular films, Jailhouse Rock. The comic was titled “From Prison to Hollywood”. I solicited the help of my friend Timmie Travis to do the adaptation and I created the illustrations.
This project was a lot fun to do from the preliminary sketches to the layouts and the final inking. I printed five copies, still own one today, and will possible do another in the future.
Pictured here are a few pages from the comic, hope you enjoy.
Im so glad you are sharing this comic work of art with us!! I met you Elvis Week 2010 and again for Bday week 2011 and we taled about this work. Hope to see you and Loretta again soon.
