Kurt Cobain's Imaginary Friend Boddah Narrates New Graphic Novel

Kurt Cobain was one of the most iconic singer/songwriters of his generation. IDW is bringing us a graphic novel this Fall that is sure to resonate with all of his fans. The book is titled, Who Killed Kurt Cobain?, and award-winning creator Nicolas Otero is bringing the story to life for us.

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 but the cool part is…it's 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.

Nicolas Otero spoke his personal motivation to tell this story by saying:

"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. Twenty years later, my hair is not long nor dirty, I'm the father of three wonderful kids, and life has given me such a great gift. I can finally draw this little voice and explore what I imagined Kurt's mind and life were inside. I hope you'll enjoy reading it as I enjoyed doing it. I'm 17 again today."

This might just be one of the most imaginative graphic novel plots I've ever heard of. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Who Killed Kurt Cobain? will arrive in book stores this October.
