What a book!

From words to pictures

Here’s a quickie from the New York Times about how more and more prose authors are having graphic novel versions of their works published. This isn’t necessarily new, as fantasy and sci-fi authors have been doing it for a while and we all remember Classics Illustrated and the modern incarnations of those (which publish works by Lovecraft, Poe, Bradbury, etc.). I’ll be honest, I often have trouble reading the graphic novel adaptation of a book I have read in print. Occasionally, I find one that’s interesting. And I am curious to read the trade comic editions of “The Eye of the World” and “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” come out. What do you all think?
