Stagger Lee

Title: Stagger Lee
Author: Derek McCulloch & Shepherd Hendrix
Publisher: Image
ISBN:  1-58240-607-3
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges:  Graphic Novels, Historical Fiction, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: I picked this up shortly after seeing a reading of the first half of the musical which is currently in development.  A few things really drew me into the story.  The first was the basis - a song based on a real murder that eventually took on a life of its own.  The other thing that really hooked me was the historical aspect.  While some of the characters are fictional, others are real, and it was the politics they were involved in that kept me intrigued.  
Rating: 5 stars
