A graphic novel interpretation of the genre master's classic dystopian work is a visual translation of the story of career fireman Guy Montag's awakening to the dark aspects of government-controlled thought and the value of philosophy, theology, and literature. Simultaneous.
Ray Bradbury's classic dystopian novel from the early Cold War days gets a timely and compelling recasting as a graphic novel by illustrator and adaptor Tim Hamilton. Hamilton captures the story's paranoid noir atmosphere with his stark black background and shading and his focused palette of blues and grays. Until the flames come, that is, and when they do, the dramatic the colors explode. Oranges and reds tear across the pages as the disaffected hero, Montag, investigates what he and his society have been missing since the people voted to burn books, taking the goal of "Everyone Made Equal" to a frighteningly oppressive extreme.
