Baby's in Black in Glasgow and London

German graphic novelist Arne Bellstorf is launching the translation (by Michael Waaler) of his comic Baby's in Black - at the Glasgow Goethe-Institut on 15 March and the London one on 16 March. It's the story of Astrid Kirchherr and Stuart Sutcliffe, suitably black and white for 1960s rock 'n' roll Hamburg.

Publishers SelfMadeHero have also brought out another German graphic rock biography, also translated by Michael Waaler: Reinhard Kleist's Johnny Cash - I See a Darkness. Or how about a graphic novel of Kafka's The Trial?
