"Baby's In Black" lyrics
Bellstorf hints at shared pasts and moments already long gone between Klaus and Astrid, but never develops them beyond mere passing mentions. In terms of character development and story progression, the narrative's strengths lie with Astrid and her experiences. It makes sense that since Bellstorf spent time with Kirchherr that the graphic novel would obviously reflect an Astrid-centric approach. Yet, one of the perhaps unintentional consequences of this focus is that the other characters are merely shallow husks. Audiences don't experience John Lennon or Paul McCartney or George Harrison as they were in , but rather through the lens of their own cultural baggage and perceptions of Beatle fascination shaped and molded by successive generations of fans for over fifty years.
While this would be hard to avoid given the status and iconic nature of both the individuals and the band themselves, the same unfortunate neglect in evolving the characters beyond mere avatars carries over to Stuart Sutcliffe as well.

Apart from learning that Stuart possessed an artistic background and was only tangentially united with the band, audiences grasp little more about the individual, his passions, and his all-too tragic and early demise.

Fortunately, it appears that Self Made Hero recognized this potential setback or limitation in the novel's structure and preemptively moved to include an excerpt from a scholarly biography of Kirchherr published in , which provides important and necessary context and cultural relevance for the encounter. Serving as a nice intellectual and ideological counterweight to the book, Jon Savage's essay discusses the significance of youth culture, pop modernism, and the Hamburg Exis.
