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.
