Kevin J. Anderson and Neil Peart's Clockwork Lives graphic novel coming soon

Author Kevin J. Anderson has just announced via his blog that a graphic novel representation of he and Neil Peart's 2015 novel Clockwork Lives - the follow-up to Clockwork Angels - will be getting released as a graphic novel in the near future. Clockwork Angels was released as a graphic novel back in 2015. From Anderson's blog post:

... 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.)
