Art

6 draft of pages from the graphic novel in different colors, like blue, orange, and purple

In an 2017 interview with NPR’s Code Switch, artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings discussed the process of adapting Butler’s work into a graphic novel. "You want teens to young adults to pick up this book and say, 'Hey, this is really, really disturbing, and beautiful, and I want to know about this woman. I want to know more about this person and how she writes and why she was writing what she was writing,'” Jennings explains. Duffy and Jennings discuss their process in depth in this panel at the Chicago Humanities Festival.
