The Blues comic book was specially designed for blues educators and Blues in the Schools programs to use with grades 3-12. Together with the accompanying curriculum (which the comic book supports but is also designed to support any program), it makes it easy to start up and run a successful, standardized Blues in the Schools program with just a coordinator and local musicians. Tips and instructions come with every order.

Easy-To-Use Format

The comic book is booklet-sized at 5.5 x 8.5 to make it easier to store, transport to schools, and read. Unlike traditional comic book pages, this one is printed on high-quality 100 lb. glossy book stock and saddle-stitched for durability. Kids love the 24, full-color pages!


Personalized For Your Program

The last page and back cover are designed so that we can personalize the comic book with your local blues information. This is included FREE with your order! This not only enables you to give inspired kids local places to find more blues, but it makes it possible to include sponsor and blues society logos — a key element in underwriting the cost of distributing the comic books!
