Life House HC

WRITER: James Harvey, David Hine
ARTIST: James Harvey, Max Prentis

DECEMBER 06 / 172 pages / FC/ — / $49.99
DECEMBER 06 / 172 pages / FC/ — / $74.99 (Slipcase)

An original graphic novel based on rock music legend Pete Townshend’s 1970 screenplay of the same name, which inspired The Who’s 1971 globally bestselling and universally beloved album, Who’s Next.
Set in a dystopian future where music has been outlawed, LIFE HOUSE follows a small band of rebels who stage an underground concert in an effort to undermine a tyrannical leader…and free Britain and all of humanity.

This graphic novelization is co-written by Doom Patrol’s JAMES HARVEY and Spider-Man Noir’s DAVID HINE, with art by both HARVEY and Australian visual artist MAX PRENTIS, lettering by MICAH MYERS, and inks by Eisner Award-winning artist MICK GRAY. It is edited by the former Dark Horse editor, HANNAH MEANS-SHANNON, and features a massive vinyl LP format (12.25″ x 12.25″). This is a must-have for any serious music collectors, rock fans, and pop culture aficionados!

Originally envisioned as a sci-fi rock epic to follow up The Who’s chart-topping rock opera Tommy, and put aside 50 years ago—in favor of Who’s Next songs like “Baba O’Riley,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” and “Behind Blue Eyes”—LIFE HOUSE will finally take center stage.

Also available in a SLIPCASE EDITION, featuring a vegan leather-bound slipcase!
