Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Musician Bruce Springsteen, teaming up with illustrator Frank Castro for his upcoming graphic novel “Outlaw Pete” to be out on November 4.
The book is loosely based on Springsteen’s song of the same name, and inspired by the 1950′s children’s book “Brave Cowboy Bill.” According to its Amazon page, the book is about “a modern legend of a criminal who starts out in diapers and confronts the roughest edges of adulthood.”
Springsteen, on the other hand, said in a statement that “‘Outlaw Pete’ is essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins.”
Caruso further says, “Like Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, Dorothy Gale and for me, even Popeye, Outlaw Pete cuts deep into the folklore of our country and weaves its way into the fabric of great American literary characters.”
Published by Simon & Schuster, the book’s hardcover version is 56 pages long.
Meanwhile, Springsteen has released his 18th and latest album “High Hopes” last January.
