John Lennon’s life gets comic book treatment

John Lennon’s life story will be the subject of a new graphic novel.
The work, titled Lennon, will follow the Liverpool-born musician’s life story from childhood to worldwide fame with The Beatles.
It will also explore his solo career and marriage to artist Yoko Ono.
IDW Publishing unveiled the graphic novel focusing on the late star on Sunday (09Oct16), the final day of 2016’s New York Comic Con and what would’ve been Lennon’s 76th birthday.
The Imagine singer had his life tragically cut short when he was shot dead outside his New York home at the age of 40 in 1980.
The graphic novel adapts a 2010 novel by French author and screenwriter David Foenkinos, which imagined the artist’s sessions on his therapist’s couch.
Monochrome artwork for the comic book edition will be provided by French artist Horne, working from an adaptation by writer Eric Corbeyran.
The English-language release of Lennon will reach stores in May (17).
