Kevin J. Anderson talks Clockwork Angels: The Graphic Novel in new interview
8:21AM EST | comments (27) |

Clockwork Angels: The Graphic NovelPhil Simon recently spoke with Kevin J. Anderson about the upcoming Clockwork Angels graphic novel for an interview which was posted at the Huffington Post this morning. Anderson talks about how he first pitched the idea for a graphic novel version of the book he co-wrote with Neil Peart:

... "The Clockwork Angels world is so vivid and fantastical it seemed obvious to me from the outset that it would translate well to the comics medium," says Anderson. ... At San Diego Comic Con, Anderson showed several comic publishers the Hugh Syme artwork from the novel. He pitched them the idea of expanding the multi-media platform from music to prose to comics. "All of the companies were interested, but said they would have to consider it, have meetings, run numbers," Anderson says. But when he talked with Ross Richie, founder and CEO of Boom! Studios, he received an entirely different response. In an e-mail, Richie wrote, "HOLY CRAP!!! Rush!!!! WHOA!!!! This is so cool!!!!!" Anderson smiles. "That was more in keeping with the enthusiasm we were looking for." ...

The article also includes samples of some concept art from the graphic novel, including this concept drawing of an Albion steamliner. Boom! Studios will be releasing the graphic novel in a series of six beginning this coming 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. The article also mentions the paperback release of Clockwork Angels: The Novel. ECW Press just released the cover art for the paperback edition which is currently due for release on May 13th and can be pre-ordered here.

#17 Most Endangered Species. Since #13 GrahamW hasn't responded yet, I'm going to speculate. If you or others don't know, Graham is a digital artist who has thrilled RIABers with digital art for Red Barchetta, Bytor and the Snowdog (his avatar is cropped from Snowdog!) and others.

I'm guessing that Graham is doing another piece based on CA and I can't wait to see it! I wonder if I have enough Christmas money left over to buy it....!

Alex and Geddy are not involved in the graphic novel release of 'Clockwork Angels' just like Neil is probably not going to be involved with the upcoming 40th anniversary release of RUSH's debut album.

However the fans will be involved with deciding to purchase one or the other and possibly both or neither.

#22- I'm talking about the song(link) that I posted. It doesn't sound like Richard Cheeseman says "saw" at the end of his rendition.

Rob, can you tell what he sings at - by hatchet,axe and ???? does he say "songs" instead of "saw"?
#20 - Posted 1/7/14 @8:35PM by Rob [contact]

"Schooby a Schooby do"

"Scooby and Scrappy doo"

"Hey,What's the matter you?"

Funny shit! lol

When I first listened to it I just thought it was a joke. Then I played it for my wife, a while later my youngest son wanted to hear it. So after three listens I found the damn thing was kind of growing on me!

#14 Jupe! That was awesome!!
