    2nd Edition - 1st printing.

    Written by James Sturm. Art and cover by Rich Tommaso.

    Baseball Hall of Famer Leroy "Satchel" Paige (1906-1982) changed the face of the game in a career that spanned five decades. Much has been written about this larger-than-life pitcher, but when it comes to Paige, fact does not easily separate from fiction. He made a point of writing his own history... and then re-writing it. A tall, lanky fireballer, he was arguably the Negro League's hardest thrower, most entertaining storyteller and greatest gate attraction.

    Now the Center for Cartoon Studies turns a graphic novelist's eye to Paige's story. Told from the point of view of a sharecropper, this compelling narrative follows Paige from game to game as he travels throughout the segregated South. In stark prose and powerful graphics, author and artist share the story of a sports hero, role model, consummate showman, and era-defining American.

    Hardcover, 96 pages, B&W (with Green shading).

    Cover price $17.99.
