Baron + Carbonetti open the door on the mystery of Jim Morrison’s death

The new graphic novel from the ‘Paul Is Dead’ team will arrive in June.

Image Comics has announced that the creators of Paul Is Dead, which featured the Beatles, will turn their attention to another 1960s icon for their next graphic novel — Jim Lives: the Mystery of the Lead Singer of The Doors and the 27 Club.

Paolo Baron and Ernesto Carbonetti will reunite for the graphic novel, which is about a father looking for his son — a correspondent for a popular American newspaper — who vanished after sending one last message: “jim morrison isn’t dead, he’s hiding out here in italy, i saw him with my own eyes.”

I wrote Jim Lives by continuously listening to The Doors vinyl records while I was in the small village where I set the story,” said Baron. “At one point I really saw him. I mean Jim.”

Paul Is Dead was released last year by Image Comics, and tackled the conspiracy theory that Paul McCartney died in the 1960s and was replaced with a lookalike. Our own Shane Bailey said it was “a beautiful little package, full of emotion, loss, anger and weirdness.” According to the press release, a third graphic novel is expected from this team as well, where they will explore another music-related conspiracy theory.

The graphic novel arrives in June.
