Rock out and Skip to the End this June from Jeremy Holt, Alex Diotto, and Insight Comics
Bassist-turned-junkie Jonny Wells is addicted to his past, but the only way to get there is through his music.
This June, Insight Comics is publishing Skip to the End, a riveting graphic novel created as an allegory to the history of the legendary band Nirvana.
Skip to the End tells Jonny’s story as he tries to cope with his band mate and best friend Kirk’s suicide. Twenty years later he struggles with heroin addiction, lost in the songs they created and desperate to relive the past—unitl one day he discover he can. With the aid of a mysterious guitar, Jonny begins to make trips back in time, searching for the roots of Kirk’s unraveling. At Nar-Anon meetings and in conversations with his sponsor Emily, he starts to cope with the events that led to Kirk’s death. But by the time Jonny realizes that his visits can’t change the present, he might be too addicted to stop.
Skip to the End explores music’s transportive property, while sharing a story of friendship, combating addiction, and suicide awareness.
Skip to the End is written by Jeremy Holt, with art by Alex Diotto, designed by Tim Daniel, colored by Renzo Podesta, and lettering by Adam Wollet.
