Even though this ARC is far from finished - the preface is missing and some art is just sketches - this graphic novel has the potential to be a huge up and coming seller next year. The themes in the novel and this adaptation speak so poignantly to our experiences in 2019 and I hope this graphic novel will have more people exposed to Butler's genius. #arc #netgalley

EKonrad I was so frustrated reading this ARC! I really wanted to see what the final version would look like. Hard to judge it completely the way it was presented. 3mo
collegecatlady @EKonrad I totally get that! I just felt that I could see the beautiful direction it was taking and I have very high hopes for it! 3mo
