Kindred Spirits...

(Click to enlarge)

The Beacon Press has some terrific Graphic Novels coming up… including Jamar Nicholas’ adaptation of Geoffrey Canada’s autobiographical FIST KNIFE STICK GUN, and Carol Burrell’s adaptation of Octavia Butler’s classic KINDRED. A call went out for artists to adapt both books and I applaud the very talented cartoonists chosen. I also took a crack at KINDRED, one of my favorite books, and I’d like to share the results with you. It was a lot of fun to try on for size, and they’re going to be beautiful books.
I can’t wait to see them.
