New graphic novel debuting on May 18th charts the life and rise to fame of the pioneering guitarist and rock legend.


Publisher ABLAZE delights and intrigues rock music and comics fans with the release on May 18th of HENDRIX: ELECTRIC REQUIEM, a bold new Docu-Graphic novel about the life of iconic rocker Jimi Hendrix, depicted with flair and colorful psychedelic artwork that tells the story of the rise of the music pioneer who made an indelible mark on rock-and-roll and helped to change modern culture forever for future generations.



A compelling trip into the mind and world of Jimi Hendrix. Electric Requiem is an exhilarating ride, from Jimi’s difficult beginnings in the South, plagued by racism, through his global stardom and triumph at Woodstock, and the excessive lifestyle of a rockstar. A rockstar who, even with all his experiences, never forgot where he came from. Skillfully written by Mattia Colombara and illustrated by Gianluca Maconi, this gripping tale of music, personal demons and thirst for glory is a must-have for any Jimi Hendrix fan. Includes bonus material on Hendrix’s life.



“Jimi Hendrix is an incomparable icon, and his legacy remains as impactful and important as ever,” says Rich Young, Co-founder of ABLAZE. “Hendrix: Electric Requiem charts the musician’s life from his humble start in Seattle, where he discovered at an early age the guitar and his destiny. This new release expands Ablaze’s docu-graphic novel series covering historical events, and is a must-read for music and pop culture fans.”
