Happy Birthday, John Jennings
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY to my prolific, brilliant friend JOHN JENNINGS! John Jennings is a comics Renaissance man, holding numerous titles including illustrator, author, editor, scholar, designer, and curator, to name a few; he is also the newly appointed director of Megascope, Abrams ComicArt’s new graphic imprint. His most recent work is, "Parable of the Sower," a graphic adaptation of Octavia Butler’s eerily prescient dystopian novel, which he produced with Damian Duffy. Duffy and Jennings’s adaptation of another Butler novel,"Kindred," vaulted to first place on the New York Times bestseller list for hardcover graphic novels and scooped up the 2018 Will Eisner Award for Best Adaptation from Another Medium!
