Kurt Cobain Receives Another Comic Book Treatment


As the 20th anniversary of his death is almost there (April 5th), it’s predictable that a lot of homages, films, books, albums will be reprinted, released…. Like this comic book written by Freelance Graphic Designer Jayfri Hashim, which will retell ‘The Story Of Kurt Cobain’: ‘Nirvana frontman’s life from his early days to his battle with overwhelming fame and the pain he suffers mentally and emotionally. Tortured by Success and Struggled with an addiction to drugs before his death at the age of 27 twenty years ago. Kurt Cobain Music lives on till this day.’ You can check more pages of the book here,… it’s a computer-graphic-generated tribute and Cobain looks a bit like a superhero or Jesus on these flashy pages – damn this sight almost killed me – on the other side the text is just what you could expect to read on Wikipedia. ‘The Tribute line of comic books tells the stories of people that have made a significant difference in the world while they were with us. It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world,’ declared Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis. ‘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.’ I see, it’s a kids’ book! About a guy who composed rock songs and killed himself? Because, let’s face it, Cobain will never be able to be regarded without his tragic end looming at the horizon. I don’t know how this book deals with the death part but I have to say this is another excuse for me to go back to Cobain’s case once again.

As I have mentioned before, the Seattle police just released pictures of the death scene, because veteran homicide detective Mike Ciesynski unexpectedly found four rolls of undeveloped pictures. So far the police had let only two pictures leak in the medias, but CBS News has obtained 29 of them. I reassure you, nothing gruesome, they will probably never release the ones showing Cobain’s body. However you can see a few ones showing the alleged suicide note which was found on top of a planter in the greenhouse where Cobain was found, with a red pen planted in the center of the page. Either Cobain really wanted it to be found, or… oh I know these conspiracy theories once again! But the most interesting part is what detective Mike Ciesynski says in this video by KiroTV,… I never knew that Kurt was found with the gun in his left hand (he was right-handed but played guitar left-handed), and I never knew the police had figured out the complete scenario of the events… how does he know this happened exactly this way? It’s totally up to anyone to come up with some time-line as he does, as there is no evidence showing Cobain took some narcotic (he also had diazepam in the system), then wrote the suicide note, then planted it, then took heroin then shot himself. This is how the SPD sees the story. Ciesynski insists on the huge amount of heroin Cobain took that day and says ‘He killed himself because of the shotgun blast but the heroin did the trick also?’ Does he realize how overkilled it looks?

The SPD persists to declare it was a suicide and the case is close for them, period but it is not the case for P.I. Tom Grant, the ex-LAPD who has been on the case since the beginning. He has never bought the Seattle police’s work and has always declared that the heroin blood level found in Cobain’s body would have immediately incapacitated him and that he could not have pulled the trigger. On his Facebook page, he is saying he is working on a very detailed response to detective Ciesynski’s, so I can’t wait. I believe another page of Cobain’s saga has started.
