Octavia E. Butler's bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece,
Kindred, now in graphic novel format

Praise for Kindred

Kindred is a perfect candidate for the graphic-novel medium—Damian Duffy's taut adaptation and John Jennings's tense, electric renderings vibrate throughout, pacing and containing, then pushing every ounce of discomfort to the forefront. Comics and science fiction exploit their greatest shared strength by illuminating the mundane that surrounds us, allowing any reader to critique and process our world with new vision."
—Nate Powell, Eisner–Award winning and New York Times bestselling graphic novelist of March, The Year of the Beasts, and Swallow Me Whole


"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 Sister Mine;
Winner of the World Fantasy, Sunburst, and Aurora Awards


"Jennings and Duffy are magnificent and this comic is a glorious tribute to Octavia Butler's masterpiece. Extraordinary."
—Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize–winning author


"The work does a wonderful job in bringing Butler's words to life in a new and interesting way."
—People's World
