Summary Kindred A Graphic Novel Adaptation

Kindred A Graphic Novel Adaptation Read Ð 109 Download ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ä Damian Duffy I lost an arm on my last trip home Home is a new house with a loving husband in 1970s California that suddenly transformed in to the frightening world of the antebellum South Dana a young black writer can't explain how she is transported acro Kindred is the tale of a black woman who is repeatedly transported from her 1970s apartment to antebellum Maryland The main reason I reuested the adaptation was so that I would finally force myself to read the full length novel I m so glad I did because it ended up being one of my favorites last year Kindred makes such a great candidate for a graphic novel because there s much dialogue and historical fiction seems to work especially well in the format John Jennings and Damian Duffy they did a fantastic job of adapting Octavia Butler s story The review below is for the graphic novel adaptation only My review for the full length novel is available at this linkThe most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed Steven Biko THE INTRODUCTION What would you do if you were suddenly pulled into the past and had to find a way to surviveThe introduction is written by speculative fiction writer Nnedi Okorafor She writes about how Octavia Butler inspired her when she needed it the most Learning about Butler s kindness and how she made time to mentor a gifted new writer gave me a whole new level of admiration for her THE ILLUSTRATIONS The Dark Thirty Southern Tales of the Supernatural is one of the most memorable books from my childhood book collection The scratchboard illustrations by Brian Pinkney shaped how I visualize the antebellum South one of the illustrations While the artwork of Kindred is uniue to artist John Jennings the earthiness of the illustrations made me immediately recall that book Jennings s style somehow made me feel settled in both the 1970s and 1800s There s a frenetic energy to the illustrations that convey the extreme stress that Dana s body is being subjected to His choice of presenting the 1970s in sepia tones and the 1800s in full color was brilliant and reminded of how differently Dana processed the two different worlds Rufus s time was a sharper stronger reality The work was harder the smells and tastes were stronger the danger was greater the pain was worse Rufus s time demanded things of me that had never been demanded before and it could easily kill me if I did not meet its demands That was a stark powerful reality that the gentle conveniences and luxuries of this house of now could not touch I appreciated the art even after viewing Jenning s Tumblr and seeing how the art for Kindred differs from his usual style Here is a link to one of the Kindred spreads but you can see some of his process for his various projects if you scroll through his blog THE STORY An adapted version won t include everything The omissions are going to be harder for me to pinpoint because I read the two books so close together However I missed the part where one of the plantation slaves explains the reasoning behind her children s names That part was probably easy to cut because many could probably make that connection on their ownWhile there are necessary omissions there are also parts where the illustrations add so much emotional power to the text Being able to see Dana s facial expressions tempered my only complaint of the full length novel that Dana seemed so detached unusually accepting of her situation At one point in the original novel Dana has to put her copy of Gone With the Wind aside because she s unable to stomach its representation of slavery after what she has experienced I mentally pictured her throwing it across the room The illustration shows her tossing it in the garbage can which I thought was an appropriate visualSome of the most powerful spreads were the ones with the fewest words One of the pages that impacted me most was after Dana convinces one of the slaves to submit to her owner s desires She didn t kill him but she seemed to die little Rufus mailed another letter for me Payment for services rendered pg 158 The Fight Minimal words but the illustrations pack such a punch Another page that I found memorable is at the end of The Fall pg 99 when Dana is reaching for Kevin as the whip comes down and she disappearsThe graphic novel is such an awesome format for Octavia Butler s classic book and would make a great gift for her fans It would also be a great way to introduce yourself to the story if you re not ready to commit to the whole novel or you don t think you ll be able to make time for it anytime soon I do recommend reading the novel first because it s a very fast paced and action packed experienceI received this book for free from Netgalley and Abrams ComicArts This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review It s available for purchaseIf you are interested in John Jennings s artwork his Hoodoo Noir graphic novella Blue Hand Mojo Hard Times Road pub date 3117 is currently available in the Read Now section Netgalley

Kindred A Graphic Novel Adaptation Read Ð 109 Download ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ä Damian Duffy Ptation of Octavia E Butler's science fiction classic is a powerfully moving unflinching look at the violent disturbing effects of slavery on the people it chained together both black and white and made kindred in the deepest sense of the wor Octavia E Butler s Kindred is a weird blend of biography science fiction and historical fiction Los Angeles 1976 Dana and Kevin black and white wife and husband begin teleportingtime traveling to the year 1819 The story mostly follows Dana s time on Maryland s Weylin Plantation spent in the company of the owner s son Rufus and the other slaves As a time piece it s incredibly brutal and accurate but to be honest it doesn t seem to say anything new American slavery was an evil social plague that continues to fuel institutional racism and hyper violent hatred today 1819 was a terrible time of dehumanization torture and death for blacks And contrastingly even 1976 maintained prejudice and social stigma against blacks as seen for Dana and Kevin who are a mixed race couple But it s not really anything I haven t seen before on the subject More importantly my problem is with the story s fundamental concepts and science fiction Dana s time travel ability isn t explained In that sense it s fantasy a mysterious plot device to facilitate a tour of early American slavery from a 20th century perspective Dana also knows how to control her time travel yet allows herself to linger in the past beyond her comfort which I don t understand I also don t understand why the method of time travel is fueled by pain and fear of death other than it s fitting for the story Another convenient plot deviceThe primary reason we re told Dana continues to not only time travel but remain in the past is to assist Rufus the plantation owner s son But I have a hard time believing this motivation It s explained that Dana was going to school to be a teacher and work in early development teaching reading and writing but she never finished school So naturally she has this strong unfulfilled desire to work with children which is obviously fitting for the story when she travels back she s suddenly an unusually literate free black and she teaches Rufus and some of the slaves how to read But why does she care for Rufus He s rude evil and psychotic He s a physically and verbally abusive rapist My only speculative explanation is that Dana is suffering from Stockholm syndrome or PTSD and is trying to cure Rufus of the incurable I don t know Even that doesn t sit well with me The other reason Dana continues to time travel is that she and Kevin are eventually and predictably separated She returns to 1976 and Kevin is stuck in the past So naturally a search ensues And you can guess how that plot thread resolves This was far too predictable Getting lost or stranded in time in a time travel story is practically grounds for a drinking game it s so expected At the roots this is a historically fictional science fiction biography of a black woman who time travels from prejudicial 1970s to slavery era 1819 Because she s a smart educated modern woman she gets in trouble and tries to historically revise the past and change its inhabitants Which as you can guess goes horribly wrong What s the moral of the story what s the why Racism is alive and it sucks Slavery was awful And even being educated and enlightened still isn t enough to survive in that brutal era But the character s motivation seems lacking to me Admittedly I read a free advance copy of this book so the uality of the unfinished artwork is pretty terrible like legitimate storyboard sketches in places so I can t accurately judge the artwork I imagine that it could be wonderfully rough or impressionistic like Jeff Lemire This however was pretty hard to look at in its unfinished state All that said Kindred is an interesting if mysteriously reasoned story I strongly empathize with Dana and the blacks who died and suffered through slavery and continue to suffer hatred and violence that goes without saying But story wise I had a hard time connecting with Dana or other characters in this book because characterization and plot were lacking And the artwork was a serious miss in this rough edition
