Gift Idea: A new David Bowie graphic novel

There’s a strange fascination with Bowie that continues year after year. Books, box sets, documentaries–and there’s even a biopic in the works. There are just so many stories to tell.

Now we have a graphic novel entitled Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns & Moonage Daydreams that covers the early part of his career. Its creators, Mike Allred and Steve Horton (of Madman and iZombie) starts in the early 60s and follows Bowie through to the last show Ziggy played with the Spiders from Mars in 1973, a gig punctuated by this legendary farewell speech.

Sadly, this graphic novel won’t be available until early next year. But you can go here to pre-order.

Get some sample pages of the book here. This looks great!
