Los Angeles - Kurt Cobain has inspired a new comic book.

The late Nirvana frontman will have his life documented in a new animated biography - which documents the rock singer's rise to fame and battle with drugs in his last few years.

The book, entitled Tribute: Kurt Cobain, will be released on 9 April, to coincide with the anniversary of Kurt's death on 4 April 1994, after he committed suicide.

In a statement, Darren G Davis of Bluewater Publishing said: "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."

The Smells Like Teen Spirit hitmaker's biography follows a string of celebrity biopics by Bluewater Publishing, with notable books in their tribute series looking at the lives of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Keith Richards.

Darren added: "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 honour these people who have made a difference in the world."

It's thought Freddy Mercury and Monty Python comic books are also being lined up for future release.
