This is one of ym personal favortie Barflys comics. There’s not enough comics that reference old blues songs. 😛 Stagolee is an American folk figure who’s had several songs written by him. He was so bad that when he died and went to hell he took the pitchfork from Satan and fucked him up.

My favorite Stagolee song is the one sung by Mississippi John Hurt that recounts how Stagolee killed Billy DeLyons for stealing his Stetson hat. Now, yes, homicide may be an extreme response to hat theft, but come on, what was Billy thinking? He’s this victimized character, but really, is there any explaination for stealing the hat of someone like Stagolee, unless you were a self-important douche?
