Graphic adaptation of Octavia Butler's Kindred. [Friday, Feb. 27th, 2009|12:00 am]
The richest girl in town.
Via pantryslut and some other folks, via Alison Bechdel:

"Attention Octavia Butler fans: Beacon Press wants to publish a graphic adaptation of Butler’s novel Kindred. They’re currently “inviting proposals from cartoonists who appreciate Octavia Butler’s legacy, and reflect her commitment to social justice in their own work. Those interested in discussing a proposal should email the editor of the Graphic Books list, Allison Trzop, at atrzop@beacon.org.” The deadline is March 16!"

Pass it on--I'd love to see a woman of color get this.

That is cool! I want there to be a movie so I can make a futile effort at auditioning for the lead. I love that book and where she was going with it before she passed.

I'm excited at the idea of this, but I also know that it'll take a, um, careful artist to not turn it into kiddie porn.
