Instant #1 New York Times BestsellerWinner of the 2018 Eisner Award for Best Adaptation from Another Medium Octavia E. Butler's bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format. More than 35 years after its release, Kindred continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler's mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century. Butler's most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre-Civil War South. As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana's own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him. Held up as an essential work in feminist, science-fiction, and fantasy genres, and a cornerstone of the Afrofuturism movement, there are over 500,000 copies of Kindred in print. The intersectionality of race, history, and the treatment of women addressed within the original work remain critical topics in contemporary dialogue, both in the classroom and in the public sphere. Frightening, compelling, and richly imagined, Kindred offers an unflinching look at our complicated social history, transformed by the graphic novel format into a visually stunning work for a new generation of readers.

"Wonderful. Captures the essence of Octavia Butler's vision even as it demonstrates the superlative skills of Duffy and Jennings."--Nalo Hopkinson "author of Skin Folk, The New Moon's Arms, and Sisters Mine " "A glorious tribute to Octavia Butler's masterpiece. Extraordinary."--Junot D az "Pulitzer Prize-winning author " The timeliness of this release is important to note, as it revitalizes unresolved discussions around what it means to be a woman of color in America. Plus, the sense of frantic movement created by the artists' colorful, layered outlines is a very cool touch.--IGN "Together, Duffy and Jennings manage to condense Kindred into 240 pages that are respectful of Butler's original work while also feeling like a distinctly new story at the same time. In exchange for some of Butler's scene descriptions, the book offers up a richly rendered, raw take on Dana's experience, heavy with thick lines and blurred movement conveying her existential disorientation."--Gizmodo "Butler's original novel is a powerful commentary on how the past informs the present and how we engage with both. But this adaptation makes an even more vivid statement about black Americans' relationship with history. The kinetic lines feel urgent, messy, and visceral. The colors for scenes set in the present are muted while the colors of the past are vibrant, almost like a bright wake-up call to reality."--Slate "This graphic novel adaptation beautifully retells the story..."--Bustle "This adaptation of the classic science fiction/neo-slave narrative novel by Octavia E. Butler is required reading."--Vice's The Creators Project "The heavily shaded, thick-lined, and rough edged art lends a grimness appropriate to a life of jagged brutality and fearful uncertainty. Both a rewarding way to reexperience the tale and an accessible way to discover it. "--Booklist "It's gorgeous, powerful, and makes you realize how resonant this sci fi story, about a young black woman living in 1970s California who's transported to the South in the period before the Civil War, really is."--Book Riot "The story lends itself well to the medium, which makes it easy for writers to contrast narration with dialogue... According to a 2015 survey of Comic-Con attendees, half of comic fans under 30 are women. In graphic novel format, Kindred provides a voice that can resonate with those readers."--The Huffington Post "While Kindred was released nearly 40 years ago, its exploration of black womanhood and afrofuturism proves to be as relevant today as it was then. And now, with the added imagery, the graphic novel certainly isn't short on capturing the same sentiment as the original." --Complex Magazine "The violence is wrenching at times, but never over the top; what's more disturbing, ultimately, is seeing this story through the eyes of someone who has been rendered powerless by the society around her." --Library Journal "The book stays close to the original, with Duffy reproducing Butler's matter-of-fact-to-the-point-of-bleakness prose, and Jennings turning in moody, expressive, woodcut-influenced illustrations that look hacked out of, or into, the past." --Flavorwire "This dead-on retelling of Octavia E. Butler's 1979 sci-fi novel is intense, heart-stopping, thought-provoking, and powerful..." --Common Sense Media "Nearly four decades after its original printing, Kindred remains a valuable story and teaching tool. From its pages, we are reminded of the destructive consequences of prejudice."--Cleaver Magazine "I do not lightly give anything a 5-star rating, but this is the best graphic adaptation of a full novel that I have ever encountered....the book belongs in every library and in the hands of any adult reader interested in serious graphic fiction." --ICv2 "In its illustrated form, Kindred receives a new identit
