Elvis Presley's Death Anniversary To Be Commemorated With Comic Book

(Gibson) A group of acclaimed comic book artists plan to commemorating the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death next year with a lavish, limited edition collection of illustrations of the rock and roll legend. Titled Graphic Elvis, the book is being billed as "an illustrated homage to Elvis's lifelong appreciation of comic books." In addition to featuring work commissioned from graphic artists from around the world, the book will include, according to a press release, "numerous hand-written notes and musings, rarely seen by the public and written in the margins of various books owned by Elvis."

Presley once told a crowd of conventioneers, "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. So every dream that I've dreamed has come true a hundred times."

Produced by Liquid Comics and sanctioned by Elvis Presley Enterprises, the collector's edition of Graphic Elvis carries a price tag of $195 and will be limited to a run of 2,500 copies. The tome is available for pre-order and will ship on or before December 10. A mass market edition is slated for release in April 2012. more on this story
