Summary

"This gorgeously rendered graphic-novel version provides a new perspective for old fans but also acts as an immersive introduction for youngsters as well as any adult who somehow missed out on the iconic story set in Maycomb, Alabama."--USA Today

A beautifully crafted graphic novel adaptation of Harper Lee's beloved, Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic, voted America's best-loved novel in PBS's Great American Read.

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

A haunting portrait of race and class, innocence and injustice, hypocrisy and heroism, tradition and transformation in the Deep South of the 1930s, Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird remains as important today as it was upon its initial publication in 1960, during the turbulent years of the Civil Rights movement.

Now, this most beloved and acclaimed novel is reborn for a new age as a gorgeous graphic novel. Scout, Jem, Boo Radley, Atticus Finch, and the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, are all captured in vivid and moving illustrations by artist Fred Fordham.

Enduring in vision, Harper Lee's timeless novel illuminates the complexities of human nature and the depths of the human heart with humor, unwavering honesty, and a tender, nostalgic beauty. Lifetime admirers and new readers alike will be touched by this special visual edition that joins the ranks of the graphic novel adaptations of A Wrinkle in Time and The Alchemist.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The themes of Harper Lee's classic To Kill a Mockingbird (1960) class strife, racial inequality, hypocrisy in our justice system are still painfully relevant and at the forefront of American consciousness today. But just as relevant is our ability to define ourselves by our values rather than merely our circumstances, to challenge bigotry when the occasion calls for it. Perhaps because of this lingering relevance, it's fitting that this graphic novel adaptation holds fast to its source material, providing an unwaveringly faithful visual representation. Fordham's adaptation relies almost entirely on dialogue, a wise choice, considering Lee's careful use of southern dialect. His naturalistic artwork, meanwhile, is beautifully understated graphic and expressive when needed but ultimately delicate enough to never render the narrative overdramatic. This illustrative restraint is the perfect counterpoint to the weighty subjects at play and the exceedingly complex yet nuanced characters. Like Lee's spare novel, Fordham's graphic adaptation leaves us to ponder what is unsaid, what is unseen, what lies in the subtext. A moving new take on a familiar story.--Ada Wolin Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This thoughtfully crafted interpretation of Lee's classic reintroduces readers to the Finch family: scrappy, outspoken Scout; her daring older brother, Jem; and Atticus, their defense attorney father and the book's moral compass. Decades-old tensions ramp up in their small Southern town when Atticus defends a black man accused of raping a white woman. Even the local recluse, Boo Radley, isn't free from the repercussions of the trial. Fordham visually establishes the world of Maycomb County-with all its unspoken laws pertaining to race, class, and family-with a sure hand. What stands out, upon seeing Scout and her entourage of free-ranging children in all their ragtag physicality, is that a world of children exists alongside the adult world: equally complex, populated by rumors about "hot steams" (ghosts) and poisoned pecans, yet also wild with possibility. Fordham's character drawings have an appropriate vintage look, and he chooses the right moments to slow down or pan out. The nighttime panoramas of the mysterious Radley residence are lovely and moody, and Fordham's sun-dappled days, blue-gray evenings, and sepia courtroom scenes are dampened only by an off-the-shelf generic font. More loving remake than revelation, Fordham's adaptation may be scrutinized by Lee's fans, but does sufficient justice to her portrait of injustice. Full art in color not seen by PW.
