Trace Adkins fans now have one more reason to love him; his likeness is featured in the new Luke McBain series from 12 Gauge Comics.
The title character of Luke McBain is drawn to Adkins’ likeness and reflects some of the 6’6″ singer’s philosophy. The story takes place when McBain returns home to rural Louisiana after serving 14 years in prison, having taken the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. He finds himself in a town now controlled by greed and corruption, and he’s the only one with the courage to set things right. Although the book contains some violence, it is generally suitable for all ages.
“The McBain character became kind of a reflection of Trace Adkins’ entertainment persona,” notes writer David Tischman in a prepared release.Â “It breathes a real life personality into the fictional character which is something we wanted. Trace helped a lot with that, and it’s something that I think we’ve worked hard to write into the character.”
The McBain series kicks off in November to coincide with Adkins’ tour, and will sell for $3.99.
