The Martian Chronicles Graphic Novel (Excerpt)

Ray Bradbury

The Martian Chronicles by Ray BradburyPlease enjoy this excerpt from the forthcoming graphic novel adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles, written by Ray Bradbury and drawn by Ron Wimberly, out July 19th from Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux.

The Earthmen came by the handful, then the hundreds, then the millions. They swept aside the majestic, dying Martian civilization to build their homes, shopping malls, and cities. Mars began as a place of boundless hopes and dreams, a planet to replace an Earth sinking into waste and war. It became a canvas for mankind’s follies and darkest desires.

Something Wicked This Way Comes Graphic Novel (Excerpt)

Ray Bradbury

Something Wicked This Way Comes graphic novelPlease enjoy this excerpt from the forthcoming graphic novel adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, written by Ray Bradbury and drawn by Ron Wimberly, out July 19th from Farrar, Strauss, and Giroux.

Only two boys, Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade, recognize the dark magic at work and have a plan to stop this ancient evil—that is, if it doesn’t kill them first.

Fahrenheit 451 Part 1 (Excerpt)

Ray Bradbury and Tim Hamilton

Today, in celebration of the start of Banned Books Week, Tor.com is pleased to offer the first part of Tim Hamilton’s graphic novel adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, published by Hill & Wang.

Fahrenheit 451 remains a very relevant book today, and this graphic adaptation is sure to introduce this seminal work to new readers. Starting this Tuesday and every Tuesday over the next four weeks, Tor.com will post the entire work, for your reading pleasure.

In addition to the hardcover and trade paperback editions, Hill & Wang has also put together a pretty cool iPhone app version, which is worth checking out. Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be showcasing some video interviews with Bradbury himself, where he talks about the journey of his novel from prose to panel, and we’ve also got some nifty Fahrenheit 451-related giveaways planned, so keep an eye out.

In the meantime, enjoy the read!
