To Kill A Mockingbird to be released as a graphic novel

I’m really not sure about this…but, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird is being turned into a graphic novel.

It has the endorsement of Lee’s estate.

The new version is being drawn and adapted by Fred Fordham, the artist behind Philip Pullman’s debut graphic novel which was published last month.

The book will publish globally in November 1st 2018. The publishers insist Fordham’s artwork is “utterly true” to the original Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, first published in 1960.

“To Kill a Mockingbird regularly tops polls as the nation’s most loved book and we are delighted that readers will be able to revisit it – or discover it for the first time – in graphic novel form,” said the publishers.

The Estate of Harper Lee said it was “very happy” to be working with Fred Fordham on the project. “Fred’s work has a quality that surpasses time, just like the novel he will bring to life in a new way. We can’t wait to hear the reaction from old and new fans.” a spokesperson said.
