Elvis Bio-Graphic Comic

March 15, 2010 | Book

Elvis Bio-Graphic Comic: "The Elvis Presley Experience (Paperback): Elvis in comics is a rich but little known genre. One of the most successful Elvis comic series was The Elvis Presley Experience, a 7 part biographical release from Revolutionary Comics in 1992. Elvis in Print: The Definitive Reference and Price Guide states about the series:

The ‘biographical’ themes in each issue range from the ‘Boy King’ to ‘Elvis In Hollywood’ and ‘What Would Happen If Elvis Lived To Realise His Full Potential’. The artwork was in black and white except for colour covers. Much sought after by collectors.

And in 2011 the full 7 part series is to be released in graphic novel format:

For the first time ever, one of Rock 'N' Roll Comics most acclaimed series is collected and back in print! The Elvis Presley Experience is both scholarly and dramatic in its graphic recreation of the King's remarkable life story. Though the series was among the best selling contemporary bio-graphic comics of the 1990s, the individual issues have been out of print for over ten years. This 200-page collection features art by future Marvel and DC star Aaron Sowd (Wolverine, Hawkman, Nightwing & Flamebird), with a story co-scripted by Babylon 5 TV vet Patrick McCray (Star Wars: Sith Apprentice, Star Trek: The Continuing Mission).

Great news that this series will be back in print, as I missed it the first time around. If I was writing a comic book on Elvis, I would definitely have to open with this quote from him: "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times."
