Overview
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.

Adapted from the French novel Le Roman de Boddah by Heloise Guay de Bellissen, this fictionalized account of Cobains demise takes a unique approach, presenting his life through the testimony of his imaginary childhood friend, Boddah. In a more or less linear manner, though with a frantic incoherence that surely matches Cobains perception of what went on around him, Otero (New Moscow) ends up presenting less a biography and more a passionate love letter of empathy to Cobain. Its a frantic and depressing journey the reader takes alongside the rock legend, with the inevitability of Cobains course taking a toll on readers ability to cling on with him. Oteros art is the star, capturing the chaos of Cobains lifestyle and the unhinged perceptions in his psyche with swirling lines that coalesce into moments of beauty. Those already fascinated by Cobain and the grunge era will find it a familiar if gloomy journey. (Oct.)
