The trailer shows footage of Nirvana gigs, the band’s now-legendary MTV Unplugged gig and more.
“Kurt took me everywhere,” read the opening lines. “Through his romances, to L.A., into his veins, on tour, into his intestines, to Japan, into his silent screams. Even into the images his mind projected against the walls. Everywhere.
“When he was 15, he sprayed the words ‘kill your parents’ on the wall of his school. Remember those words. My name’s ‘Boddah’, and I killed Kurt Cobain.”
The synopsis the book reads: “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 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.”
In 1994, at the age of 27, Cobain blew his brains out. Since then, there have been countless books and documentaries on the iconic singer.
