Afrofuturism: The Graphics of Octavia Butler
From PU Princeton University Library on August 3rd, 2020
Adapting "Parable" and "Kindred" to a graphic novel format is an astounding achievement, and we are fortunate to have both Damian Duffy and John Jennings with us to discuss how they accomplished it. Their adaptations capture the energy and raw emotion of Butler’s prose with visual acrobatics and succinct verbal interchanges. Join this lively discussion with Graphic Arts Curator Julie Mellby, focusing on the development of a graphic adaptation of classic literature, along with a look at their future projects.
