Overview

Marc Olivent's illustrations and Jim McCarthy's words perfectly capture the dangerous spirit of Axl Rose, the most memorable Guns N' Roses lineup, and group changes over its three-decade career. It is a story of excess and chaos: the feud between Rose and Kurt Cobain, riots during concerts, the most expensive album ever made, the bitter departure of Slash, the drugs, the groupies, and of course, the music. Only a graphic novel could do justice to the epic story of Guns N' Roses. Las impresionantes ilustraciones de Marc Olivent y los guiones incisivos de Jim McCarthy captan perfectamente el peligroso espíritu de Axl Rose, la primera y memorable formación de Guns N'Roses y los numerosos cambios en el grupo a lo largo de tres décadas. Es una historia de excesos y descontrol: la enemistad entre Rose y Kurt Cobain, las revueltas durante los conciertos, la fascinación de Rose por Charles Manson, el disco más caro jamás hecho, la agria salida de Slash del grupo, las drogas, las groupies, y, por supuesto, la música. Solo una novela gráfica podía hacer justicia a la historia épica de Guns N'Roses… ¡Y es esta!
