Description

GodSpeed: The Kurt Cobain Graphic tells the story of rock antihero and grunge icon Kurt Cobain in the format of a totally unique graphic novel. The story is legendary, the words are poetic and the art is profoundly well-drawn, this is one account of Cobain's life that you don't want to miss.

Writers Barnaby Legg and Jim McCarthy have constructed this story using biographical fact interwoven with references to Cobain's tortured self-image. This novel depiction of the singer's tragically graphic life brings vibrant colour and a brand new perspective to the mythos surrounding one of the most lauded figures of Generation X. The art by Flameboy successfully represents both the biographical fact and the fictionalised dreamscape that the writers have worked through to create this examination of the truly heroic musical legend.

Much more than a simple story, GodSpeed is a Kurt Cobain biography that is unlike anything you will have read about the Nirvana frontman before. Going beyond the plain facts, it transmutes an extraordinary life into an equally extraordinary work of art. This thrilling tale is essential reading for Nirvana and Cobain fans, but would also be a great addition to any rock music fan's bookshelf, telling the story of a tortured figure who spearheaded alternative rock and changed the landscape of music as we know it.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This graphic is killer. The artists have nailed this story and character depictions of Nirvana, Courtney Love etc. Blown away. I love music graphics and have the whole Omnibus series including Sex Pistols and Tupac. This is my favourite. Really good work. Respect to Jim McCarthy

Customer Rating This was a great read. The illustrations were brilliant and really bring Kurt's story to life. The pacing is perfect, the story is neither too long or too short, and the inevitability of the ending does nothing to detract from the rest of the strip. It's undeniably dark but tastefully presented; the script never comes across as forced or crass. This is a genuinely excellent graphic novel and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
