Listen: Billy Pilgrim has…
…read Kilgore Trout
…opened a successful optometry business
…built a loving family
…witnessed the firebombing of Dresden
…traveled to the planet Tralfamadore
…met Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five is set for release at your local comic shop on September 9th, 2020 and at bookstores and Amazon on September 15th, 2020.
