LONDON (Reuters) – A brand new graphic novel will inform the life story of late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in his personal phrases, from his childhood in Zanzibar to turning into one of the crucial well-known rock stars on the earth.
Z2 Comics has joined forces with Common Music Group and Mercury Songs Ltd for “Freddie Mercury: Lover of Life, Singer of Songs”, which it described as “the first-ever graphic novel paying tribute to one of many biggest figures the music world has ever recognized”.
The e-book, launched in November, will look again on Mercury’s life on and off stage.
“The story is instructed in his personal phrases, with every chapter giving a glimpse into the numerous sides of his life,” Z2 Comics stated in a press release.
Mercury died from AIDS-related pneumonia in 1991.
