Dave Grohl is the ultimate rock icon, with a musical career spanning two legendary bands – first as the drummer in Nirvana, before founding Foo Fighters. He’s also played with Queens of the Stone Age and co-founded a rock star supergroup called Them Crooked Vultures.

Devastatingly, last year, Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins died, which meant the heartbroken band understandably cancelled the rest of their 2022 tour. More recently, it’s been announced the Foo Fighters are set to headline three festivals in the US during 2023. Although a new tour is yet to be revealed, fans are hoping for fresh dates to drop, so they can watch their favourite band play live once more.

If you’re a keen Foo Fighters follower or a fan of Dave Grohl, you’ll be pleased to hear about a new comic book that was recently released. Orbit: Dave Grohl is a 26-page comic book that is part of a wider series and has previously been featured in the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines.

But now, you can buy this series compiled in book form. Written by Adam Rose and illustrated by Martin Gimenez, the book charts this rock star’s adventures, from Saturday Night Live stints to jamming with Animal from The Muppets.

Read on for everything we know about this brand-new Dave Grohl comic book launch, including where to buy it and which formats the release is available in.
