The graphic novel  - which is described as "true biographical fiction" - is based on the 2010 novel Lennon by David Foeniknos, and is set for release in May 2017.

As explained in the video description: "The story imagines the late Beatle during his time living in New York City, recounting his life to an unnamed, unseen therapist who lives in his building. 

"As one does when speaking with a therapist, the character of Lennon traces his entire timeline, from his difficult upbringing in Liverpool, to the rise of The Beatles, and through his solo career."
