Episode 9: Slaughterhouse Five (GN)

Episode nine is here and this one is definitely not bad! No, it’s actually really good and we are proud of it. Angela and I discuss the recently released graphic novel adaptation of the Slaughterhouse Five. We were both a little nervous that we were going to struggle to find something to latch onto in here and really analyze. It ended up that we both dug into this question of how do you adapt a novel into a similar but still crucially different medium. What gets brought along, what is left behind, and how do you preserve the core message of one of the most important anti-war books of its era. Like I said we get into we hope that you enjoy the episode.

Find a copy of the Slaughterhouse Five graphic novel at you local book store here.

What we are enjoying this week.
