If you are a fan of hard rock or music in general than most likely you have heard about the band Nirvana. Nirvana's lead man; Kurt Cobain was one of the most influential artists of his time and the next. He taught us to take this world and make the most out of it. Sadly in 1994 Cobain passed away. Some people believe he took his own life while others believe it was something much more. We may finally find out through the eyes of Kurt Cobain's imaginary friend; Boddah.
"Who Killed Kurt Cobain?"
Nicolas Otero has created this comic to show the world how great of a legend Cobain has become. Nicolas Otero is basing the graphic novel off of the French novel, Le Roman de Boddah by Heloise Guay de Bellissen. This graphic novel made by IDW comics may be hard to get through, but it will definitely be a fascinating read. This is the summary of the novel from IDW.
Through the eyes of Boddah, readers get a front row seat to the highs and lows of one of 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.
Otero also commented from the IDW release stating,
I was 17 when Nirvana and Kurt Cobain came to Paris in 1992. I saw them live the day before my graduation and it was… explosive, mind-blowing, sonic, and so powerful. When Kurt put an end to his life in 1994, I remember hearing the name of Boddah for the first time. I thought it could be a fantastic way to tell Kurt’s story, with Boddah as the narrator.
How do you feel about this upcoming comic series? The graphic novel will be released this upcoming October.
