Hope Larson to Adapt ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ to Comics
Despite the fact that Madeleine L’Engle’s iconic fantasy novel “A Wrinkle in Time” sits atop many elementary school required reading lists, I suspect many in the comics crowd have digested its content fairly voluntarily over the years. So when “Chiggers” and “Mercury” creator Hope Larson broke the news that she’d be tackling a full-fledged graphic novel adaptation in the near future, images of tesseracts began dancing in my head.
Larson made the announcement via Twitter earlier today, setting off a flurry of RTs through comicdom:
I’m thrilled to announce, at long, long last, that I’m writing and illustrating the graphic novel adaptation of A WRINKLE IN TIME!
Further official info and preview art should be showing up down the road, but for now it’s nice to know there’s a certifiably excited comics pro at the helm of a tale that’s also slated for some cinematic action before long.
