CLOCKWORK LIVES Graphic Novel

Published April 4, 2017 in Advice - 0 Comments

Some lives can be summed up in a sentence or two. Other lives are epics.

And some graphic novels are really epic.

I am pleased to announce the full graphic novel adaptation of CLOCKWORK LIVES, our companion novel to CLOCKWORK ANGELS. The publisher will be Insight Editions, who have produced some exceptionally fine books—and LIVES needs to be a lavish, impressive book (and not just because Neil Peart says so).

Insight’s Senior Editor Mark Irwin has always been a huge Rush fan (and in fact that’s how I got to know him years ago). He sees this as the perfect opportunity for us to work together. I will be writing the full script with input from Neil. We don’t have the artist(s) chosen yet.

CLOCKWORK LIVES is a very personal story to me, sort of a steampunk Canterbury Tales featuring many of the best-loved characters from CLOCKWORK ANGELS, but it has a terrific story of it’s own. The book won the Colorado Book Award, but more importantly Neil told me he feels this is the best work I have ever done.

Obviously, it needed to be a graphic novel. I’ll start working on the full script in the next month. Stay tuned for more information. (In the meantime, you can read the novel, or the unabridged audiobook.)
