Rush fans stoked about the upcoming new comic book series based on the legendary Canuck prog-rockers' critically acclaimed concept album "Clockwork Angels," can now place their orders.
According to an article posted Dec. 24 at Bravewords.com, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees six-issue Boom! Studios miniseries, titled "Clockwork Angels" is now available for pre-order.
The first issue, which hits shelves in March, is available for $3.99 while a six issue subscription retails at $29.99.
Rush lyricist/drummer Neil Peart hatched the coming-of-age story of a naive youngster in a turn-of-the-century world of airborne steam liners, pirates, carnivals, working alchemy and wind-up contraptions with novelist Kevin J. Anderson, who wrote the "Clockwork Angels" novelization and is also penning the comic-book adaptation.
"It's just a beautifully painted world in the music that I tried to capture in the novel and now tried to turn into a different direction," says Anderson, who's working with artist newcomer Nick Robles.
Anderson posted an update on the project to his blog yesterday, which includes some more information on Nobles and why they chose him.
Did you know? Rush released a live DVD/Blu-ray/CD last month, titled "Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour," which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Music Video chart for the week of Dec. 7.
