A band-authorized graphic novel chronicling the creation of Rush’s A Farewell to Kings album will be released on Sept. 10. The 144-page The Making of A Farewell to Kings was created by the Fantoons animation studio with input from Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson and Kings album producer Terry Brown, who also wrote the book’s forward. An additional project – a 70-page coloring book “packed with gorgeous Rush artwork and references from Moving Pictures to Clockwork Angels” — is set to arrive in July.
Rush and Fantoons previously collaborated on 2015’s RUSHToons by Fantoons Vol. 2112 and 2017’s Where’s Geddy, Alex and Neil Vol. 1.
Released in 1977, A Farewell to Kings was Rush’s fifth studio effort.
