Product description

Review

"Duffy and Jennings have done justice to Butler's work, losing none of the story's richness and adding an exciting visual element that makes the reading experience even more visceral and engrossing."-- "Forward Reviews, STARRED review"

"Jennings and Duffy are some of the most skilled and hardest working comics creators doing the work to radically transform and diversify the comics scene."-- "Comicosity"

"Jennings has captured [Butler's] words with visual imagery in such an afrofuturistic, horror-esque way that the images jump off the page with every turn."-- "Flickering Myth"

"John Jennings's work succeeds as sequential storytelling and approaches the level of iconography regularly."-- "The Believer"

"...alarmingly prescient and relevant...This accessible adaptation is poised to introduce Butler's dystopian tale to a new generation of readers."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"...the graphic novel is faithful to Butler, yet still fresh in its world building."-- "USA Today"

"...Jennings' work in the book is beyond stunning..."-- "The Beat"

"The Parable of the Sower graphic novel... is as faithful an adaptation as you can get. Not only does it hit all the plot points, it perfectly portrays Butler's balancing act in regard to how far society has fallen apart."-- "Kirkus"
