Kurt Cobain is set to be immortalized in comic book form thanks to a tribute which will be released on the 20th anniversary of his passing.

The Nirvana frontman died from a shotgun wound at his home in Seattle, Washington in April, 1994 and to commemorate the music icon’s legacy, writer and artist Jayfri Hashim has created “Tribute: Kurt Cobain” in honor of the beloved rocker.

The book will tell the story of Cobain’s life, from his days starting out as a musician to his battle with the pressures of success and fame.

Bluewater Productions publisher Darren G. Davis explains the importance of the the comic books in a statement: “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.

“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.”

Other artists featured in the Bluewater Tribute line of comic books include John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Keith Richards.

“Tribute: Kurt Cobain” will be published on April 2.
