Clockwork Lives, the graphic novel now available

Order Here
"Some lives can be summed up in a sentence or two. Other lives are epics." The followup to the best selling Clockwork Angels, Kevin J. Anderson and Neil Peart return to the world of the Watchmaker with all new stories told through the colorful characters of Clockwork Lives, hitting bookstores today.

In this graphic novelization which contains many familiar characters from Clockwork Angels, "Marinda Peake is a woman with a quiet, perfect life in a small village who long ago gave up on her dreams and ambitions to take care of her ailing father, an alchemist and an inventor. When he dies, he gives Marinda a mysterious inheritance: a blank book that she must fill with other people's stories - and ultimately her own."

The graphic novel was created with a team of artists offering unique touches for each of the 13 chapters/character's stories. The hardcover book itself is absolutely gorgeous, printed on durable paper and sporting an all new cover by Hugh Syme. Like its predecessor, Clockwork Lives is well steeped in the world of Rush, yet it is done tastefully and without becoming overbearing or (pardon the pun), comical. How? Whether it is through a simple turn of phrase lifted from a Rush lyric, or through the many graphic nods to the Rush universe (such as the inclusion of a Hemispheres album cover "painting" hanging on a character's office wall, not to mention the "cameo" by Lee Lifeson and Peart themselves), we are frequently reminded of what brought us all here in the first place.

Enjoy your visit back to the world of Rush and the Watchmaker. Available June 26th, you'll want to make sure you get a copy of the Clockwork Lives graphic novel before it's gone.  Click here to order.
