The upcoming release of the Super Deluxe Edition of The Who's ‘Who’s Next | Life House’ album will also contain a 172-page graphic novel. It will recount Pete Townshend’s Life House project, which foresaw the invention of the internet, virtual reality and a pandemic-style lockdown.
Townshend teamed with writer and artist James Harvey to develop the story and look at the future as seen from a 1970 point of view. Several others joined the effort, the book came together. Townshend described Life House as “a portentous polemic about the coming of a nation beaten down by climate issues and pollution.” Fans can preview the novel on the group's social media accounts.
