This book takes Kurt Cobain's story & plays it out as a totally unique graphic novel. From the luminous colors of an idyllic childhood through flamboyant hues of success & 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 book fluctuates between subjective dream-state & objective reality. Much more than a biography, GodSpeed is unlike anything you have read about Kurt Cobain before. Going beyond the facts, it transmutes Cobain's extraordinary life into an equally extraordinary work of art. Parental Advisory: Explicit Contents.

The Ramones were the hard-hitting New York punk band that erupted in nervy 1974 when a serial killer terrorised the city and civic bankruptcy loomed. From their beginnings in Queens and the burgeoning punk scene at CBGB’s, through the excitement of their first album, a brush with Phil Spector and more than two thousand concerts over a 22 year period, The Ramones always were a force to be reckoned with. This is their full story told in dramatic graphic style: the in-fighting, the deaths of three founding members, their influence on British bands like The Sex Pistols and The Clash, the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and finally a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

By far the most successful of thrash metal’s original big four, incredibly Metallica have now been performing for well over 20 years. Beginning with their initial underground success, The Metallica Graphic Novel takes in all the highs (the amazing commercial success of The Black Album, the nine Grammys, the over 100 million albums sold worldwide), the tragic lows (Cliff Burton’s death in a bus crash, the rehab for alcohol and substance abuse) and the controversies (the Napster lawsuit). Brian Williamson’s stunning artwork and Jim McCarthy’s incisive script perfectly capture the rollercoaster tale of Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, Cliff Burton, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and the many others who have passed through the Metallica story.
