Kurt Cobain: The Graphic Novel

       iOS iPad

"This feels like a real comic book, and, in my opinion, it is a truly brilliant use of the iPad’s screen. I recommend you check it out in the App Store… it’s worth it!" - Mactrast

"The strength of the story and the excellent graphics carry the app nicely. For me, as a Cobain novice, this was an enjoyable read." - iPadinsight

"For the casual listener who is curious to learn more about Cobain, this graphic novel turned app offers an artful version of the rocker’s tortured life" - PadGadget


A captivating graphic novel about the remarkable life of Kurt Cobain, front man of the iconic band Nirvana.

This app takes Cobain's story and plays it out as a visual depiction of his life. From the luminous colours of an idyllic childhood through the flamboyant hues of success and stardom, Cobain's story inevitably declines into a much darker palette. The script draws from the singer's tortured self-image as well as straightforward biographical fact so that the tone of the app fluctuates between subjective dream-state and objective reality.

Featuring exclusive artwork from Flameboy and a brilliantly constructed story by writers Barnaby Legg and Jim McCarthy, this graphic novel captures every aspect of the life of Kurt Cobain.

Users can browse page by page, or zoom in and work their way through frame by frame.

Taken from the best-selling 2003 print edition, this unique App further enhances the graphic novel experience and gives a fascinating insight into the life of a true musical legend.
