In honor of Les Paul’s 96th Birthday, and the incredibly cool logo Google did to go with it, here’s a 2-page comic I did that was part of a Les Paul museum exhibit a few years back.

It’s based on his account of his accidental near-electrocution, which is a very real danger for electric guitar players. It’s easy enough to remedy nowadays. You just need to plug your equipent into a jack that has surge protection. Electrocution by guitar claimed the life of Keith Relf of The Yardbirds back in the seventies.
