No.1-The Curtain Falls
In this 1996 adult comic, suicidal rock artist Nurdt Nobrain dies and arrives in a mysterious afterworld, where he reviews events from his life.
Based on historical events from the 1990's, this fictionalized parody examines issues of fame, drug use, suicide, family and sexuality. The graphic novel includes depictions of adult subject matter, profanity, nudity and intravenous drug use.
This is the premiere publication of the original first instalment of a planned comic series, of which only the first issue was ever produced. This collector's edition in full color, a fully realized production designed by the author, features additional material from the author's sketchbooks. Zombie Punk No.1-The Curtain Falls celebrates the completion of the forthcoming novel, Zombie Punk, the first book in The Goddammerung, a series by the same author.
