Our Highest Recommendation.Kurt Vonnegut’s classic adapted in graphic novel form for the first time! Eisner Award-winning writer Ryan North (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Albert Monteys (Universe!) translate a literary classic into comic book form.

Kurt Vonnegut’s classic adapted in graphic novel form for the first time! Eisner Award-winning writer Ryan North (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Albert Monteys (Universe!) translate a literary classic into comic book form. It’s VERY well done, very well illustrated, and a long, deep, rewarding read. I really enjoyed it. -Bud. Billy Pilgrim has read unknown sci-fi writer Kilgore Trout and then met him…opened a successful optometry business; has built a loving family and been a prisoner of war and witnessed the firebombing of Dresden; has traveled to the planet Tralfamadore; and he has come unstuck in time.

Slaughterhouse-Five is at once a farcical look at the horror and tragedy of war and a moving examination of what it means to be a fallible human. The aliens of Tralfamadore have no concept of time; for them, all life happens now, so our lad (and the lovely porn star, Montana Wildhack) end up on public (well, alien public) display in a zoo. But he’s still in World War II, still a working optometrist, and he’s going to nearly die in a plane crash, and….

This is a packed graphic novel, and it will reward you with a LOT of story for the price. They’ve done an outstanding job adapting this monumental volume (everyone read this in the sixties and seventies, often in a high school or college literature course). It’s great fun to relive it again and discover all that I’d forgotten about it.

“This tragic, bleakly funny take on Vonnegut’s defining work will send enthused readers back to the source, and deserves a place beside it on the shelf.” -Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“…the best, and most effective, graphic novel adaptation of a literary novel in recent memory.” -Library Journal Starred Review

“…an absolutely stunning visual translation of one of the most important novels of the 20th century. I had the same strange pleasure with it that I had the first time I encountered Mr. Vonnegut’s work.” -Kevin Powers, award-winning author of The Yellow Birds
