Graphic Novel Project Highlights Johnson City: Hip Deep, Mountain High (Chapter 1)

“Hip Deep, Mountain High” is a graphic novel, still in progress, by local author/blogger/epicure Steve Denton. He’s using manipulated digital photographs to tell the story; numerous local folks — from librarians to clergymen to lawyers to semi-professional musicians — are playing the roles of local mobsters, celebrities, and other ne’er-do-wells. You can read the first 25 pages on the blog (linked below) and help sponsor the project (and get a subscription to the series as it continues) via PayPal. Check it out!
