“Wrinkle in Time” Graphic Novel Announced

Despite L’Engle saying that she never wanted her books to be illustrated, artist Hope Larson has been tapped to adapt the YA classic A Wrinkle in Time as a comic book graphic novel. The work will apparently eventually tie in to the planned movie. Geeks of Doom has more.

They also ask readers if they’re looking forward to the new visual form of the work or if they’re purists who feel the novel should remain solely in its original form. I think it’d be nice if the graphic novel and/or movie introduces new readers to the book, and am choosing to pretend–as I routinely do with movie adaptations of novels–that the film shares the book’s title purely by coincidence. If you pretend that a movie has nothing whatsoever to do with the book it’s based on, it’s much easier to avoid disappointment.
