ELVIS

Written by Philippe Chanoinat and Fabrice Le Henanff | Translated by Joe Johnson
NBM | November 1st, 2016

Stepping into Sun Studios in 1954 Elvis Aaron Presley recorded his first single "That's All Right". Little did he know he would soon revolutionize music and culture worldwide. This graphic novel biography starts with the story of "The King's" humble beginnings in Mississippi, detailing, every step of the way, his meteoric rise to the stratosphere of stardom.  It includes his service in the military, his extensive record as a Hollywood film star, his complicated family life, finally ending on the last days of the Hound Dog. Le Henanff's striking photo-quality painting reconstructs Elvis's life in a presentation that practically dances off the page!
