Billy Pilgrim’s Wild Journey Begins In ‘Slaughterhouse-Five’ First Look

by James Ferguson

Next month sees the release of the graphic novel adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five. Publisher BOOM! Studios has shared an early preview of the book, adapted by writer Ryan North and artist Albert Monteys which you can check out below.

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
                                                                                               …come unstuck in time.
 
Billy Pilgrim’s journey is at once a farcical look at the horror and tragedy of war where children are placed on the frontlines and die (so it goes), and a moving examination of what it means to be fallibly human. 

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