Owen looks like a dork.

I think I understand what Neil is saying and I don't want to sound explicitly smart but I don't think fear is necessarily a human weakness, it can be but it can be a very useful and realistic sense of warning ("they also have human weaknesses, like fear, pride and envy.")

there is an article about the CA comic book in today's toronto star.

This is so tacky and unnecessary. The album was great, the tour was even better, but seriously: QUIT WHILE YOU'RE AHEAD, FELLAS.

And at what point do they release the Test For Echo tour DVD? 2112 in it's entirety!!!!!!

#13- Agreed. I listened to the audio book, and I thought it sounded like Neil was reading it as if it was geared towards younger kids.

...or the pop-up book. He kind of looks like a cross between Lou Diamond-Phillips and Teddy Atlas.

I'll wait for the Owen Hardy Muppet TV Special.

I read the book and I liked the story, but for some reason it felt to me like it was written for elementary school level readers. I'm not asking for Tolstoy, but a little more in depth character development and a more sophisticated writing style would be welcome. Also, the references to Rush could be a lot more subtle.

Might check this out or not. Depends on the price.

Yawn, yawn, yawn! If the novel of CA is as difficult to get into as Terra Incognita, best avoided.

This is really scraping the barrel. Stick to the music boys. This other stuff if so peripheral/removed from Rush.

I for one am excited for the graphic novel. I am currently teaching Clockwork Angels to my Senior students. Studying the lyrics and applying them to their lives have led to new insights into the story. Playing each song from the DVD after each discussion has been a lot of fun! Who knows, I may have helped to create some new Rush fans!

Endlessly Rocking!

I agree about the look of Owen. But many people in Britain have other roots, Denmark being a key source of "early" "immigrants," by Thor!

I Love Rush!!! The band..............

Evil right winger. Smaller government, living within budgets, recognizing the constitution. Oh the nerve.

"The Right-Winger."

Homey,

That is funny!

Gotta laugh at the assertion that Owen Hardy is from a "British" village...As depicted, he really reminds me of a friend of mine (who is of Japanese and Danish heritage). I think I remember Anderson discussing when the book came out that he intentionally designed the world with a very cosmopolitan feel to it--both in terms of the names of the characters and what they looked like. Really looking forward to seeing the visuals.

It was Ray's idea. He needs the $ to cover the psychiatric help he's receiving to get over the butt kicking that Sammy Hagar put on him in his bio.

Yeah, they could have an evil Rush Limbaugh character on ice skates.

Quote: "Who knows, we might have ice follies someday or a Broadway musical." ...

That, mein Froinds, was a slip up of the first degree! It would make sense in the Ray Danniels world of "get the cash while you can"...I can see it now: "Clockwork Angels, the musical". Or: "Clockwork Angels on Ice!!" Showtimes at 2pm, 5pm and 8:30pm.

Uggh, I think that KISS' manager has been imparting ideas to Ray Danniels, if that's his real name.
