Literary: Carol Tyler

When I visited underground cartoonist Justin Green’s studio last year while interviewing him for our profile of his career and current work, I also had the opportunity to check out a few finished pages of his wife Carol Tyler’s work in progress, a proposed series of books designed to help veterans come to grips with their inner conflicts. Tyler’s graphic novel was to be the first book in a trilogy entitled You’ll Never Know, detailing her aging father’s battle experiences during World War II and how his 60-year suppression of his feelings about that time impacted Tyler and her family. The stunning first book of Tyler’s trilogy, A Good and Decent Man, has just been published by Fantagraphics and is already garnering stellar reviews from all quarters. On Saturday, Shake It Records will host a book signing with Tyler and very special guest Chuck Tyler, the book’s subject, who will also be signing copies from 5-7 p.m.
