Neil Young’s “Greendale” goes graphic

GREENDALE-JUMP-2-articleInline Neil Young’s 2003 concept album “Greendale” has been turned into a graphic novel, the New York Times reports today.

The musician’s elaborate rock operatic set, about the denizens of a Northern California town and their radicalization, has seen numerous artistic iterations. Following the album’s release, Young took it on the road in an elaborate theatrical tour with Crazy Horse. He also made a low-tech film based on the piece, later available on DVD. Now DC’s Vertigo division is presenting it in graphic form, scripted by Joshua Dysart and illustrated by Cliff Chiang.

Says Young in the Times story, “I’m happy the story is getting around; I think it’s empowering for
young women.”

“Greendale” trading cards can’t be far behind.
