Kevin J. Anderson goes full-steam ahead and into new territory with Clockwork Angels. Anderson (known for his Dune and Star Wars novels as well as his original series Saga of Seven Suns and Dan Shamble, Zombie Pi), will be adapting his bestselling novel Clockwork Angels to graphic novel form for Boom! Studios. Clockwork Angels is an innovative and unique project—a steampunk fantasy adventure based on the same-titled concept album by Rock legends Rush.

The lush story is full of pirates, lost cities, airships, stempunk carnivals, and of course the mysterious Clockwork Angels. Art by Nick Robles. Issue 1 (of six) is now available for pre-order! »
