For the first time in comics format, Freddie Mercury: Lover of Life, Singer of Songs will be a journey through Freddie’s life; from his childhood in Zanzibar, through his formative years in England, to becoming the rock star known and loved by millions around the globe. The story is told in his own words, with each chapter giving a glimpse into the many facets of his life.
Written by Tres Dean (All Time Low Presents: Young Renegades), 'Lover of Life, Singer of Songs' will give true insight into the many experiences that helped shape the young Farrokh Bulsara and his compelling existence, both on and off stage—that was the life of Freddie Mercury, Lover of Life, Singer of Songs.
If I could, I would only give this half a star. The story of Freddie Mercury is well-known, but the artwork in this book is simply shoddy. If I didn't know this book was to portray Freddie then I would have never guessed it from the artwork. It is just awful and poorly done.

This took an interesting angle on Freddie Mercury's life. It focused on his personality, important moments to him, and how he felt as opposed to drugs, band drama, and music. I learned from it, but it didn't blow me away. The switching up of illustrators was distracting, as the art style changed. I would have preferred a more detailed art style as opposed to the cartoonish (almost manga-like at times) style. It took away from the story.
