The Blues

Josh Coen
The world's first comic book that tells the story of blues music.

The Blues app is an exciting, full-color adventure brought to life with music, sound, and beautiful illustrations. It features Otis, a young boy from the Mississippi Delta in the 1930s, as he discovers the blues and follows it throughout his life. From juke joints to cotton plantations to the Great Migration north to Chicago; Robert Johnson and Howlin' Wolf to Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, and The Rolling Stones; country blues, work songs, and spirituals to electric blues and rock 'n' roll; this first-of-its-kind story has it all!
