The making of a new graphic novel titled ‘Lennon’ was revealed on what would have been the ‘Imagine’ hitmakers 76th birthday (09.10.16) and recalls the star’s life “from childhood to worldwide fame and his solo career and marriage to artist Yoko Ono”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Lennon’ was announced at New York Comic Con over the weekend and is re-worked from the 2010 novel of the same name by David Foenkinos, which focuses on a series of fictional counselling sessions between him and a therapist.

John was murdered in front of his wife Yoko Ono in New York in 1980. The black-and-white artwork for the comic book edition – which will hit shelves in May 2017 – comes from Horne, working from an adaptation by writer Eric Cobeyran.
