John Lennon Is Getting a Comic Book Biography
'Lennon,' which follows the former Beatle through his life story, will hit shelves in 2017.
On the final day of 2016's New York Comic Con, IDW Publishing unveiled a new graphic novel focusing on one of the city's most famous adopted sons, with the announcement of Lennon, a comic book biography based on John Lennon's life.
The new book adapts the 2010 novel by French author and screenwriter David Foenkinos, which retold the former Beatle's story through the framework of transcriptions of sessions between Lennon and an imaginary therapist. The story travels through Lennon's entire life, from childhood, worldwide fame and his solo career and marriage to artist Yoko Ono.
Black and white artwork for the comic book edition comes from Horne, working from an adaptation by writer Eric Cobeyran. The English language release of Lennon will reach stores May 2017.
