"[A] wordless, deliciously mannered fable about desire, socialization and utopianism . . . Hartzell's narrative glides along so smoothly that it can take a few readings to notice how clever and nuanced his design sense is." --Douglas Wolk, The New York Times "Andy Hartzell has beautifully created a wordless parallel universe that is both totally recognizable and completely insane. It's just like our world--dog eat dog er, fox eat bunny. It's brain bending, disturbing and a hoot--just like the good ol' USA. Hop to and dive into it!"-- Peter Kuper "Hartzell realizes a lot in his graphic novel, and anyone lucky enough to read Fox Bunny Funny will find a work of fiction that challenges the reader to think not only about himself, but also about his relationship to his own group and others. A gay/lesbian coming of age story, the Rwandan genocide, Sudan, American slavery, the Holocaust, the consumer economy, the food chain, gender transformation, identity politics -- the possibilities through which to view this story are endless."-- Leroy Douresseaux, Comic Book Bin "It's always an achievement, in and of itself, when an artist can execute a cohesive and intelligible work of sequential art without the use of any text ... well worth a read for anyone on the lookout for a promising new talent."-- Brian Heater "I was immediately astounded by the intricacy and stark beauty of Fox Bunny Funny. [Andy Hartzell] skillfully creates a world that simultaneously evokes the funny animal milieu and a naturalistic world."-- Rob Clough, Sequart The rules are simple: you're either a fox or a bunny. Foxes oppress and devour, bunnies suffer and die. Everyone knows their place. Everyone's satisfied. So what happens when a secret desire puts you at odds with your society? Starting from a simple premise -- and without using a single word -- Fox Bunny Funny leads the reader on a zigzag chase in and out of rabbit holes, and through increasingly strange landscapes where funny animals have serious identity problems. The tale swerves from slapstick to horror and back again before landing at the inevitable climax, in which all the old rules are shattered. When you emerge, you'll find yourself gazing at our own fragmenting society with new eyes.

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.
