It will chronicle the guitarist's life, career and struggles, 20 years after his death

The story of Kurt Cobain’s rise to fame and his struggles with addiction and depression will be chronicled in a new comic book.

The illustrated story of the Nirvana frontman will be released April 2, the Hollywood Reporter reports. That’s just a few days before the 20th anniversary of his alleged suicide. It will be available in both print and digital form and is part of Blue Water Productions’ “Tribute” series, which has already featured the stories of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Keith Richards.

“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,” Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis told the Hollywood Reporter. “Our biography comic books are now taught in schools and libraries for students and reluctant readers.”

You can take a sneak peek at some of the pages of Tribute: Kurt Cobain and pre-order it Comic Flea Market.
