And in other comics-related news...graphic novel artist needed for Octavia Butler's Kindred!

Thanks to Latoya Peterson's heads-up over at Racialicous:

From the Beacon Press blog:

As mentioned by Alison Bechdel on her Dykes to Watch Out For blog, Beacon Press wants to publish a graphic adaptation of Octavia Butler's Kindred. If you are interested, contact Beacon's editor of its Graphic Books list, Allison Trzop, at atrzop * at *

If you don't have a subscription to award-winning 80-page quarterly Bitch magazine, it's definitely time to start one. Image Map

I LOVE that book!!!!!! I read it over the summer it is amazing. Her short stories are also great. I wish I could illustrate it but alas drawing is only my hobby I have no real training :( I will definitely buy the graphic novel though.


Octavia Butler is one of my heroes\ favourite authors. I'm pretty stoked about this!
