Octavia E. Butler once argued that Kindred was the only one of her novels that wasn't science fiction. She called the time travel tale of slave times a "grim fantasy," because aside from the time travel, everything in the novel is powerfully, painfully real. Join moderator Erika Alexander (Concrete Park) for a conversation with artist John Jennings (The Blacker the Ink) and writer Damian Duffy (Black Comix) about their process translating Butler's fierce prose into the forthcoming graphic adaption, published by Abrams ComicArts.
