A Kurt Cobain comic book is set for release on April 2nd by Bluewater Productions, which specializes in graphic novels and comics. The comic, which is being released just days before the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death, was written and illustrated by Jayfri Hashim as part of Bluewater’s “Tribute” series. It chronicles Cobain’s early days and his overwhelming rise to fame. The “Tribute” series has previously issued comics on the lives of living and deceased rock icons including: Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Keith Richards.
Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis told The Hollywood Reporter, “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. It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world.” On Cobain, Davis said, “Not only is this a great way to understand the importance of his contribution to music, but it is a great tool for kids to read about him in a different medium. Our biography comic books are now taught in schools and libraries for students and reluctant readers.”
The print edition of Tribute: Kurt Cobain can be ordered for $3.99 at Comic Flea Market, and digital versions will me available for order on iTunes, Kindle, and other eBook websites.
