Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller 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.… (més)

I had heard a lot about Octavia Butler and I knew how much of a pioneer she is in the field of fantasy/sci-fi for black authors. But I’m also not much into reading classics and never thought I would be diving into her work. But, we chose Kindred as the March BOTM for our Stars and Sorcery book club and I decided to pick up the graphic novel adaptation. I don’t know exactly what I’m supposed to feel after reading this but I know I’m better off for having had this experience and the insight into this wonderful author’s work.

This book really is a painful look at slavery and it’s lasting effects. Dana is a young, independent, modern woman but we see how easily she starts getting used to the oppression and horrific conditions in Antebellum south because her mind is on survival. Her whole family’s existence depends on her keeping Rufus alive, but that also means she has to tolerate his aggression, sexual violence and inhumane treatment of the slaves - all of which go against her own beliefs. This fight between her survival and her conscience is depicted in a very thoughtful manner but the abuses she or anyone else endures is never whitewashed. The author also shows us that just because the practice of slavery was abolished, it didn’t really end. It’s affects have lasted for generations (even till date) which is clearly reflected in the family’s reactions to Dana and Kevin’s interracial marriage. There is also a great parallel between the menial jobs that Dana has to work in the 70s to keep food on the table to the kind of jobs she is expecting to perform on the plantation.

The art style in this graphic novel is very unlike anything I’ve ever read before and it took sometime for me to acclimatize to the characters, but I think it suited the story. The illustrator uses a different color scheme to reflect the past vs the present and that definitely worked in the book’s favor. But I think the best (and probably the worst too) part of this adaptation was seeing the horrific depiction of slavery on page - the whippings, beatings and rapes - it’s very painful to read and I had to take breaks in between, but it also makes this book and the story feel much more real.

I think this is an important book to read and I would definitely recommend it to anyone, but just be aware of the graphic content. I also think this graphic novel is probably a good first foray into Octavia Butler’s work - this will definitely pique your interest and maybe help in your deep dive into the author’s other prolific works. I for sure am interested in trying to read the original Kindred sometime, hopefully soon. ( )

*reviewed from uncorrected egalley*

graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler's time travel/slavery novel. Excellent storytelling and illustrations, and of course the story is A . Very well done. ( )

Well. If I'm going to be stranded convalescing on the couch, I might as well do it gripped by this fairly superb adaptation. What a terrific and horrifying story. The art didn't always gel with me, but Duffy and Jennings did the novel justice. It must have been an enormous undertaking on so many levels. ( )
