A few weeks back, BOOM! Studios announced a graphic novel adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five from writer Ryan North, artist Albert Monteys, and colorist Ricard Zaplana. The announcement was missing a cover. That has since been rectified as the publisher has revealed the stunning cover by Monteys based on a design by Scott Newman. Check it out below.
Slaughterhouse-Five is an American classic and certainly a story that lends itself to the comic book medium. Billy Pilgrim’s journey through time and space is a perfect fit for comics. I’m very curious as to how it will all come together.
Slaughterhouse-Five is set for release at your local comic shop on September 9th, 2020 and at bookstores and Amazon on September 15th, 2020.
