Exactly What Happened in A Wrinkle in Time

A loving tribute during A Wrinkle in Time’s 50th anniversary, Faith Erin Hicks has presented us with a comic detailing her favorite part of the book. It is honestly the most adorable thing we’ve seen in a long time.

Faith Erin Hicks is the author and illustrator of a number of webcomics, including Demonology 101 and Zombies Calling. Her comic Friends With Boys is now available as a graphic novel from First Second.

I'm so old I can't even remember if I read A Wrinkle In Time but this comic makes me want to read it, whether again or for the first time.

Favorite book growing up, by one of my favorite web comic writers today. Perfect. But don't forget her other comic The Adventures of Superhero Girl!

Timim, I felt the same way!! I'm feeling a bit ancient right now... I know I read another Madeleine L'Engle books that was super and not science-fictiony. Now that I remember a bit, I think I TRIED to read this book, and got frustrated with it. I had read her book Camilla, and loved it, so I had an expectation that was not met with Wrinkle in Time. Still, when I read that it had been banned, I TRIED to slog through it. For science fiction, I like Asimov better.

I read this to my 5th/6th grade class. As we neared the end of the book, I thought perhaps it had been too heavy for them. I told the class we would be moving on to another author. To my delight, they asked if we could read the rest of the series! We did and they enjoyed it so much. :)

I adored the book when I was in high school and the sequels. I recently saw a theatrical presentation of it and the cold war aspect of the story really hit me in a way that had not been so obvious to me before. (I know, I must have been blind...) The representation of the totalitarian dictatorship as a brain was an effective metaphor in the book even if the cartoon depiction makes it look a bit silly.

The cartoonist's depiction of Meg is perfect!

I loved the orginal book, "minior Jesus wheezing aside" but the sequels dissapointed me. They didn't really seem to connect with it. I still re-read the orginal every few years, but the sequels? Not a chance.
