The most iconic singer/songwriter of his generation, Kurt Cobain left behind a phenomenal body of work, legions of fans, and a mystery... a final letter addressed to "Boddah." Now, award-winning creator Nicolas Otero brings the story of this note to life in the original graphic novel WHO KILLED KURT COBAIN? Based on the French novel, Le Roman de Boddah by Heloise Guay de Bellissen, this adaptation - a work of fiction - recounts real-life events from Cobain's life, as narrated by his childhood imaginary friend, Boddah. Through the eyes of Boddah, readers get a front row seat to the highs and lows of one of the music's most influential voices like they've never experienced before. Trace the arc of modern rock's greatest icon from the dark clubs of Seattle to the bright lights of the world stage... and all the angst, horror, and thrill that came with that ride in this captivating graphic tale.

If you are a die hard fan of Kurt Cobain you just might love this graphic novel. The story for me was a little bit different as it follows the voice in his head, Boddah. The novel even has a copy of the letters he left to Boddah, including the final letter before departing this world. 

Though I was not a fan of Grange Rock I will admit the Nirvana's first breakout song "Smells like teen spirt" was a different sound but a novelty for me. The music was odd so after reading this book I can understand a little bit better as to why.

The artwork and pace of the book are the highlights. You can easily loose yourself in the picture's that are cluttered with images just like Cobain's head. 

The story really focuses around Courtney Love, Boddah, And of course Heroin. 

So if you are a Kurt Cobain fan you will want to pick this book up. For me it was ok I learned a few new things. But it still did not change how I feel about the music or the band.

Who Killed Kurt Cobain? The Story Of Boddah will hit the store shelves November 1st, 2016.

  1. I was not a fan of Kurt Cobain or Nirvana either. This is heresy, I know, but I always thought he was a self-indulgent whiner. If he didn't like his fame or the wealth that came from it, he could have set up a charitable foundation and worked to give it away to people, kids or other creative people that could benefit from it. That would have provided his life with the meaning he apparently craved.
