Pixies frontman Black Francis has teamed up with biographer Josh Frank to create a new graphic novel, titled The Good Inn.

The singer/songwriter, real name Frank Black, and the author of Pixies tome Fool the World are developing the story of a heroic teenager, called Soldier Boy, for the project.

British illustrator Steven Appleby will provide the art for the book, which will be released in the U.K. in May (14).
