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 Butlers mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century.

Surprisingly, Kindred adapts well to the graphic novel format. While we lose some of the sparkle of Butler's prose, the story remains engrossing and the illustrator does a good job of portraying what violence is necessary while not getting as graphic as one could (though the book is still not for kids, unfortunately).
