A statement on the book reads: “This epic, fully authorised graphic novel chronicles the birth of Rush’s classic album A Farewell To Kings.

“Relive the trials and triumphs alongside Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, and Neil Peart as they create the masterpiece of progressive rock that gave birth to Closer To The Heart and the majestic Xanadu.
