Rush Becomes Comic Book Figures

by Mark Cartwright

       Not content to be members of the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, Rush has announced it will issue a six part comic book series based on  the group’s latest album, Clockwork Angels.  Authored by Kevin J. Anderson, it should be a collector's item for any Rush geek, like me. 
       On a personal note, I think they should give them all super powers.  If they're gonna be comic book characters, they should have super powers! 

    Suggestions:  Geddy Lee could have a special high note that he sings that makes villain's heads explode.  Alex Lifeson could have an effects pedal that transports him briefly back and forth in time, or  drummer Neil Peart, well, he might already have super powers.  Have you ever seen him drum live?  Amazing.
