On Sep. 14, Jon Del Arroz revealed the first look at Graham Nolan’s cover art for the forthcoming graphic novel adaptation of The Ember War, the first novel in the sci-fi The Ember War Saga by author Richard Fox. Del Arroz is writing the adaptation and Jethro Morales is illustrating the interior artwork.
Del Arroz used a livestream with Fox to reveal Nolan’s inked artwork. He then posted it to his website and on Twitter. Brett R. Smith will add the color.
The Ember War Saga consists of nine novels. And the plan is to adapt them all into graphic novel form. “I hope this book is a tremendous success so we can use him [Nolan] 8 more times for a beautiful gallery of Richard Fox graphic novels,” Del Arroz wrote on his website.
Fox describes The Ember War as “a story of first contact with galactic empires, some with our best interests at heart, others that see us as an infestation to be wiped out.”
And like one of Del Arroz’s other graphic novel projects, The Ember War adaptation will be seeking to secure financing through a crowdfunding campaign. “The Ember War will go live on IndieGoGo on Tuesday. For now, check out Flying Sparks by the same creative team. It’s gone to printer and I anticipate I’ll have the books here within the month for shipping.”
