Nolan's artwork, titled 'Absolute Zero', focuses on mysterious character Dr Mann and his robot Skipp and begins before the start of 'Interstellar', reported Ace Showbiz.

In the film, characters played by Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway blast off into space on a quest to find a habitable planet in a bid to find a new home for mankind.

Along the way they stop off to bring a former deep space explorer, Dr Mann, out of deep sleep. The back story "companion piece" will be featured in the upcoming issue of Wired magazine, which Nolan is guest editing.

Meanwhile, the film's science adviser, Kip Thorne, has also authored a new book called 'The Science of Interstellar'.
