Jackson's grandson takes on her classic story...

Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery": The Authorized Graphic Adaptation - Miles Hyman


Miles Hyman is the grandson of Shirley Jackson, and he has adapted her classic story into a graphic novel. The artwork is gorgeous and the faces full of expression. The graphic novel format adds another dimension to this creepy tale.


There is a bit of brief nudity which I don't really see the need for, but it isn't too graphic (just a woman taking a bath).


I enjoyed this version and it stays faithful to the original. Definitely a must-read if you are a fan of Shirley Jackson - more than worth your time.


I read this for my Graphic Novel class (and yes, it's as fun as it sounds).
