A new graphic novel based on John Lennon‘s time in New York is set to be released later this month.

Based on on the 2010 book Lennon by David Foeniknos, the graphic novel is described as “true biographical fiction” and imagines Lennon recounting his life to an unnamed therapist living in his building.

While the bulk of the book will deal with Lennon’s time in New York, it will also chronicle his time growing up in Liverpool, the Beatle years, his relationship with Yoko Ono and his solo career.
