Neil Young’s epic GREENDALE has made headlines as a powerful concept album, a performance piece and a movie. Now Vertigo, the publisher of Sandman, Preacher and Y The Last Man, will publish a graphic novel based on Young’s ambitious concept piece. The project was announced today by Karen Berger, the Senior Vice President and Executive Editor of Vertigo, during the San Diego Comic Convention.

GREENDALE will continue to find new audiences as an original graphic novel, written by Joshua Dysart (SWAMP THING, VIOLENT MESSIAHS) from characters and concepts by Young, and featuring full color artwork by Sean Murphy (OUTER ORBIT, OFF ROAD).

It’s the fall of 2003 and the nation is marching blindly into a war that the rest of the world doesn’t seem to want. The media pipes in stories of global unrest and criminal politics. GREENDALE tells the story of Sun Green, a teenager and burgeoning activist whose life is changed when a mysterious stranger pays a visit to her small town. In a matter of days the only symbols of uncorrupted authority, unconditional love and youthful rebellion are swept clean form the streets, sending the town into a disillusioned spiral and Sun on a surrealist, transformative journey through familial tragedy, failed romance and self-discovery.

Politically and environmentally aware, GREENDALE is a meditation on the magic of activism and the nurturing strength of humanity in all of us.
