I agree with the Washington Post's review "...a graphic novel is perhaps the ideal medium for Cash's biography, not only because it allows for revealing imaginative digressions, but because Cash has become something of a superhero, with a built-in origin story and a great costume (all black, of course).
Aside from Elvis and the Beatles, Cash is perhaps the most popular and respected pop artist of the 20th century, although his catalog is arguably much more substantial and his backstory much more compelling. However, his myth constantly threatens to eclipse the man himself, and I See a Darkness finds little of the real man behind the legend. But perhaps this is not necessarily a bad development: Cash may be six years dead, but the Man in Black is alive and still kicking."
Couldn't have said t better myself. This isn't the real Cash, but it is Cash as hero.
