Nick Cave: Mercy on Me


Musician, poet, writer, actor: Nick Cave does not like to limit himself to one discipline. In Mercy on Me: de getekende biografie, Reinhard Kleist tells the story of one of the world’s biggest rock stars. In his expressive, associative style, Kleist follows Cave from his early days as a musician, through the Berlin punk scene of the 80s to the superstar he is today.

An astounding graphic novel about music, love, madness and punk, and what it means to be an artist.

‘Reinhard Kleist, master graphic novelist and myth-maker has – yet again – blown apart the conventions of the graphic novel by concocting a terrifying conflation of Cave songs, biographical half-truths and complete fabulations and creating a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World. Closer to the truth than any biography, that’s for sure! But for the record, I never killed Elisa Day.’ – Nick Cave
