Clockwork Angels graphic novel coming March 2014

Even though Rush won't be on the tour or releasing a new album during 2014, fans now have something to look forward to: a graphic novel adaptation of Clockwork Angels.

Written by Kevin J. Anderson, who also wrote Clockwork Angels: The Novel, and illustrated by artist Nick Robles, the first of six issues will be published in mid-March 2014 by Boom! Studios.

You can pre-order Clockwork Angels #01 on the Boom! Studios website.

Today, Anderson posted a new blog entry CLOCKWORK ANGELS Graphic Novel-Meet the Artist, Nick Robles. He writes of Robles:

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?

Also, in case you missed it: In early December, USA Today interviewed Anderson and Peart about the upcoming adaptation, which also included some concept art by Robles.

Can't wait to see how this project comes together!
