Cobain Unseen

by Sarah Zupko

Cross’s history of Kurt Cobain’s life uses the standard words and pictures to tell its story, but then throws a curveball by including pull-out documents of Cobain drawings, writings, photos and bits of Nirvana memorabilia. It’s the compelling “museum in a box” concept that worked so well for Marvel Comics last year and DC Comics last year. One of these “objects in a book” includes a CD of the Nirvana frontman’s unreleased spoken word material. It’s a compelling way to tell this enigmatic figure’s life story in a fresh fashion.
