Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation

Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller

Octavia E. Butler’s bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format.

Octavia E. Butler’s bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format.
 
More than 35 years after its release, Kindred continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler’s mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century. 
 
Butler’s most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre–Civil War South. As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana’s own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him.
 
Held up as an essential work in feminist, science-fiction, and fantasy genres, and a cornerstone of the Afrofuturism movement, there are over 500,000 copies of Kindred in print. The intersectionality of race, history, and the treatment of women addressed within the original work remain critical topics in contemporary dialogue, both in the classroom and in the public sphere.
 
Frightening, compelling, and richly imagined, Kindred offers an unflinching look at our complicated social history, transformed by the graphic novel format into a visually stunning work for a new generation of readers.

    Kindred is the tale of a black woman who is repeatedly transported from her 1970s apartment to antebellum Maryland. The main reason I requested 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

    The 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 survive?

    The 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 unique 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 more 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 more 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 own!

    While 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 visual.

    Some 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 disappears.

    The 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 experience!

    I have been wanting to read Octavia E. Butler’s Kindred book forever! Well, I finally did… kind of! I read the graphic novel form. One of my friends posted a photo of them reading this on Instagram and I was shocked to see there was a graphic novel version. Thankfully the school that I teach at has an amazing graphic novel section and they had this book.

    This book lead to the exploration of violence and the loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and how it has had a lasting impact on today. This book covers racial and gender divides in the South through the 20th century.

    Dana is a young black woman, who randomly and unexpectedly time-travels from her home in 1970s California to the pre–Civil War South. In the 1970s she is a free woman and when she is in the pre-Civil War time she travels back to her own complicated family history on a southern plantation. She becomes involved with the slaveholder’s son, Rufus. He is one of Dana’s ancestors and she does whatever she can to help him, while trying to change his view on slavery and what he does to other human beings.

    This book was great and showed how times had changed greatly, but not enough. It also showed what slaves went through and how a child’s life and experience growing up can set up a negative mindset of others.

    I suggest this book to anyone that enjoys graphic novels and history.

    I came late to Octavia Butler’s work and am making up for lost time. A friend in college suggested Parable of the Sower to me. I read that, really liked it… and then didn’t read any more of her work until recently. I was nervous going into this adaptation of Kindred— how on earth could the art do justice to the complexity (and violence) of the original? Reader, it did. The art is beautiful and captures the horror of slavery, Dana’s struggle, and the weird compression of time. At the same time, i
