Graphic Novel of Fahrenheit 451 Coming Soon

A Publishers Weekly article by Calvin Reid entitled "New Look for Bradbury's 'Fahrenheit 451'" reports that Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 will soon be adapted to be published as a graphic novel. Artist Tim Hamilton has recreated this science fiction classic with input from Ray Bradbury. It will be released both in hardcover and paperback and will be marketed during the American Library Association's Banned Books Week in September of 2009. Playboy magazine which first ran the original serial in 1954 has purchased the serial rights. The publisher also plans to adapt graphic novels of Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles and Something Wicked This Way Comes. An e-book version of the graphic edition will be available for the iPhone.

The Banned Book Challenge continues until June 30. Set a goal and read with us.
