Celebrate ‘Hamilton’ with cancelled graphic novel adaption art and pages by Brent Schoonover

A graphic novel adapting Hamilton was once in the works, but alas it was canceled before it was finished.

After you pick up and enjoy the excellent Devil’s Highway which came out this week take a moment to reflect that the atmospheric and well-paced story was drawn by an artist once commissioned to draw a Hamilton graphic novel. Artist Brent Schoonover revealed via his Twitter this morning a Hamilton adaptation was in the works at one point, but it didn’t make it to the light of day.

Along with designs and interior pages, Schoonover shed some light on the project.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

With colors by Kelly Fitzpatrick, Schoonover reflected on how the graphic novel intended to move away from drawing actor likenesses which may have been a reason the project was never completed.

As you can see below, Schoonover gives Hamilton fans and comic book readers a taste of what could have been.

I for one watched Hamilton for the first time today thanks to the Disney+ premiere, which made viewing Schoonover’s art all the more enlightening and entertaining. I have to say the character design is quite cool.
