THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (Dan Watters / Dev Pramanik)

Titan Comics annonce une adaptation de L’Homme qui venait d’ailleurs, le long métrage de Nicolas Roeg avec David Bowie sorti en 1976 (d’après le roman de Walter Tevis) , sous la forme d’un album de 128 pages prévu pour cet automne.

Titan Comics has announced a fully authorized graphic novel adaptation of the 1976 movie, The Man Who Fell To Earth, starring David Bowie.

The book will be written by Dan Watters, with art by Dev Pramanik, and is scheduled for fall.

Here’s how the book is described:

« The story follows an extra-terrestrial called Thomas Jerome Newton who lands on Earth in search of water to save his dying home planet. Using his advanced scientific knowledge, Thomas becomes incredibly rich thanks to dozens of inventions his company releases. He uses his wealth to search for a way to transport water back to his home planet, but as his wealth and his fame grows, Thomas becomes a target of interest to the U.S. Government who begin to investigate him. »

« The€Man€Who€Fell€to€Earth€is a masterpiece of a film with an awful lot€to€say; about men, about the€Earth, and lots of things in between, » Watters said. « There are ideas in the film, about climate crises and corporate greed, that are more relevant now than they were when Nicolas Roeg set out€to€make it. And now here we are. I think it’s high time€to€look at the world through Thomas Newton’s mismatched eyes all over again. Perhaps he’ll see something we’ve been missing. »

The Man Who Fell to Earth will be a 128-page hardcover and will cost $29.99.
