Nick Cave: Mercy On Me Graphic Novel Out Now

SelfMadeHero, as part of its tenth anniversary, has just released Nick Cave: Mercy On Me. Graphic novelist Reinhard Kleist (Johnny Cash: I See A DarknessThe Boxer, Castro) worked his magic on the life and times of Nick Cave, creating a book that seems like it will be every bit as intriguing as its subject. The book features characters drawn from Cave’s music and writing, and depicts various moments in Cave’s life, such as his childhood in Australia , his time with The Bad Seeds, and also his struggles with heroin.

“Reinhard Kleist, master graphic novelist and myth-maker”, adding that he “has – yet again – blown apart the conventions of the graphic novel by concocting a terrifying conflation of Cave songs, biographical half-truths and complete fabulations and creating a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World. Closer to the truth than any biography, that’s for sure! But for the record, I never killed Elisa Day”. – Nick Cave

Alongside the release of the book itself, you can watch an animation created by Australian filmmaker and animator Shahriar Shadab:

Nick Cave: Mercy On Me released on 7th September, and is available to buy for £14.99.
