To celebrate the release of the Slaughterhouse-Five graphic novel, adapting Kurt Vonnegut’s classic novel, publisher BOOM! Studios has released a trailer showcasing some of the interior artwork and quotes from reviews and creators. The book was adapted by writer Ryan North and artist Albert Monteys.
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.
It’s been ages since I’ve read Slaughterhouse-Five, but I will admit, I want to check it out again in this medium. Slaughterhouse-Five is available now at your local comic shop, bookstore, and Amazon.
