Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, adapted by Ryan North and Albert Monteys
Trade Paperback – Archaia – Sep 2023 – 173 pages
Centering on the infamous firebombing of Dresden, Billy Pilgrim’s odyssey through time reflects the mythic journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we fear most. Billy Pilgrim’s journey is at once a farcical look at the horror and tragedy of war where children are placed on the frontlines and die (so it goes), and a moving examination of what it means to be fallibly human. An American classic and one of the world’s seminal antiwar books, Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five is faithfully presented in graphic novel form for the first time from writer Ryan North and artist Albert Monteys.
