Introduction by SFWA Grand Master Nalo Hopkinson

In this graphic-novel adaptation of Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower by Damian Duffy and John Jennings, the award-winning team behind Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation, the author portrays a searing vision of America's future.

In the year 2024, the country is marred by unattended environmental and economic crises that lead to social chaos. Lauren Olamina, a preacher's daughter living in Los Angeles, is protected from danger by the walls of her gated community. However, in a night of fire and death, what begins as a fight for survival soon leads to something much more: a startling vision of human destiny . . . and the birth of a new faith.

"Alarmingly prescient and relevant. . . . This accessible adaptation is poised to introduce Butler's dystopian tale to a new generation of readers." --Publishers Weekly

"The graphic novel is faithful to Butler, yet still fresh in its world building." --USA Today
