Now, why would David Berman think that people who listen to indie rock want to read comics? Drag City's website recently announced that they'll be publishing The Portable February, a comic compilation book from the ex-lead silver semite.
The label will be publishing February in May as part of their "2009 explosion," which promises a cavalcade of folky albums by the Summer. It'll be Berman's first book since 1999's Actual Air, an excellent collection of poetry.
