David Bowie's Son Duncan Jones Discusses His Highly-Anticipated Graphic Novel
A new graphic novel by Duncan Jones has recently come to light. According to David Bowie's son, the project holds a great deal of significance for him.
British filmmaker Duncan Jones has recently collaborated with writer Alex de Campi on the highly anticipated graphic novel "Madi: Once Upon a Time in the Future."
The novel is the third installment of the acclaimed "Moon" trilogy. In a recent interview with FOX News, the 49-year-old shared his thoughts on the latest endeavor.

The opportunity to do this in a graphic novel has been fascinating for him and his colleague. Jones suggested this might be a chance to catch the summer blockbuster that people have been missing.
"It's been such a strange year and such a strange time making this," he said. "Because we've been making this before COVID, so it actually worked out very well for us."
Because Jones's wife is immunocompromised, he's had to work at home for a while. The project appears to be one of the few that he has been able to complete from home.
A few months back, Jones reflected upon his father's death.
"Madi" was made possible by a Kickstarter to fund the project. More than $275,000 was raised immediately, making it one of the most successful comics Kickstarter campaigns ever.
A graphic novel of 260 pages, the project features several celebrated artists, including Duncan Fegredo, Glenn Fabry, Pia Guerra, and Simon Bisley, among others.

A few months back, Jones reflected upon his father's death. He said it was amazing to see how many still look up to the legendary singer, who died of liver cancer in June 2016.
Jones was not Bowie's only child. He shared Lexi Jones with Somali-American model Iman. Jones was born just as his dad was becoming a renowned rockstar in 1971, and he was called Zowie Bowie.
Bowie was first married to actress Mary Angela Barnett in 1970. They called it quits ten years later. In 1992, Bowie tied the knot with Iman in a private ceremony in Lausanne.
Bowie first met Iman at a dinner party in 1990 after she had retired from modeling at the time. Iman's hairdresser introduced the two, and it was love at first sight for Bowie.
