We learned last month that Boom! Studios would be releasing a graphic novel version of Kevin J. Anderson's Clockwork Angels novel in a series of 6 issues beginning next March. The first issue along with a complete 6-issue subscription are now available for pre-order at the Boom! Studios website (Issue #1 for $3.99, 6-issue Subscription for $29.99). The series will be scripted by Anderson with artwork by Nick Robles. Anderson posted an update on the project to his blog earlier today including some more info on Nobles and why they chose him:
... We were very pleased to see the samples from Nick Robles, best known for his work in the gaming industry, and we felt that his style had the right kind of flavor, a flair for color, sense of wonder, innocence, fabulous imagination. Neil and I both loved his work. And when Nick started sending a flood of concept sketches of the characters-Owen Hardy, Mr. Paquette, Lavinia, the Pedlar, the Watchmaker, the Anarchist-and steamliners, the pedlar's steampunk cart, we knew we had the right guy. AND he's a Rush fan, so what more could we ask for? ... Nick is thrilled to be working with BOOM! Studios on the Clockwork Angels project and is very humbled to be bumping shoulders with a professional comic company and the myriad of other big names on the team. In his own words, "I've never felt so gratefully overwhelmed with a project, and the faith put in me. I hope this is the start to a wonderful career, and I can't wait until the first book is finished and in print." ...
