NEW YORK, June 8 — Harper Lee’s classic novel is to be adapted into a graphic novel that has been endorsed by the estate of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author.
Publisher William Heinemann, which originally published the novel in 1960 in the UK, will also publish the graphic novel.
Fred Fordham — the author/illustrator behind Philip Pullman’s first graphic novel — will draw and adapt the work.
“Fred’s work has a quality that surpasses time, just like the novel he will bring to life in a new way,” said the Estate of Harper Lee in a statement.
To Kill a Mockingbird, whose author died in 2016, has been translated into more than 40 languages and sells well over a million copies annually worldwide. The graphic novel adaptation is to publish globally on November 1, 2018. — AFP-Relaxnews
