Videos of Talks on Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower: A Graphic Novel Adaptation

By Damian Duffy on

Here are videos of talks John Jennings and I have given about our latest published work, Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower: A Graphic Novel Adaptation. (Available now from Abrams ComicArts, wherever fine books are sold, support your indie booksellers and local comic shops!)

First up, here we are on January 18, in discussion with the inestimable author and scholar Jonathan W. Gray at the Schomburg Center’s 8th Annual Black Comic Book Festival:

Next, see us talk race and time travel with the inimitable writer, critic, and DJ Hannibal Tabu on February 22 at Black Comix Day 2020 in this video by the fine folks of Hall H Show!

And, last but not least, enjoy our March 5 chat with the incomparable Nalo Hopkinson at the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens, home to Octavia E. Butler’s personal papers!

It’ll be a while before we emerge from our COVID caves, so those recordings of our in-person tag team shenanigans will have to hold you, J2D2-heads. Until then, stay inside, and take care of yourselves and each other as best you can.

To quote an Earthseed verse from Parable of the Sower: “Kindness eases Change.”
