Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles: The Authorized Adaptation
What a great pairing of science fiction and graphic possibilities!
Astronauts from Earth encounter telepathic, shape- shifting aliens on the Red Planet in this series of short stories written from 1946-58. Adapted as a graphic novel by Dennis Calero and drawn with an eerily limited palette of red and black tones, Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles transport readers between the not-so-distant world of space travel and the “what if?” limitlessness of our imaginations. It’s a great introduction to science fiction for middle and high school readers.
Set the stage with this 13 minute video interview with Ray Bradbury to celebrate this life-long pioneer of the next frontier.
