Nirvana: Kurt Cobain comic book biography to be released

A new comic book biography of Kurt Cobain will be released in sync with the 20th anniversary of the Nirvana frontman’s passing.

Written and drawn by Jayfri Hashim, “Tribute: Kurt Cobain” will be published April 2by Bluewater Productions as part of their popular Tribute series.

“The Tribute line of comic books tells the stories of people that have made a significant difference in the world while they were with us that,” says Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis. “It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world.”

“Not only is this a great way to understand the importance of his contribution to music, but a great tool for kids to read about him in a different medium,” added Davis. ”Our biography comic books are now taught in schools and libraries for students and reluctant readers”.

The Cobain book follows previous Bluewater releases on music legends like Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Keith Richards; a bio on Queen frontman Freddie Mercury will be published soon.

Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Seattle home on April 5, 1994; his body was discovered three days later by an electrician who had arrived to do some work on the property.

On April 10, Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt.
