|Tribute: Kurt Cobain, Blue Water Productions|
Written and illustrated by Jayfri Hashim as part of Blue Water Productions' Tribute series, "Tribute: Kurt Cobain" will cover Cobain's early career and rise to superstardom as well as his battle with the overwhelming fame that caused his mental and emotional suffering.
Darren G. Davis, the Blue Water publisher of Cobain's installment to the Tribute series, told Rolling Stone that, "Not only is this a great way to understand the importance of his contribution to music, but it is a great tool for kids to read about him in a different medium. Our biography comic books are now taught in schools and libraries for students and reluctant readers."
The Tribute series has previously chronicled music icons such as Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Jim Morrison, Whitney Houston, and Keith Richards. Movie stars such as Bruce Lee, Marilyn Monroe, and James Dean have also been given their own comic tribute. Coming soon are issues about Freddie Mercury and Monty Python, according to Hollywood Reporter.
"Tribute: Kurt Cobain" is set for release on April 2 on the anniversary of Cobain's suicide. Preorders of the printed comic can be found at Comic Flea Market for $3.99 and will be available digitally through iTunes, Kindle, Nook, Google Play, ComiXology, and other e-book retailers.
Nirvana will also be inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame on April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn alongside Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, and Linda Ronstadt.
