Kurt Vonnegut's classic adapted in graphic novel form for the first time!
With Kurt Vonnegut's seminal anti-war story, Slaughterhouse-Five, Eisner Award-winning writer Ryan North (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Albert Monteys (Universe!) translate a literary classic into comic book form in the tradition of A Wrinkle in Time and Fight Club 2.
Billy Pilgrim has read Kilgore Trout and opened a successful optometry business. Billy Pilgrim has built a loving family and witnessed the firebombing of Dresden. Billy Pilgrim has traveled to the planet Tralfamadore and met Kurt Vonnegut. Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time.
Slaughterhouse-Five is at once a farcical look at the horror and tragedy of war where children are placed on the frontlines and die (so it goes), and a moving examination of what it means to be a fallible human.

"Exceptional."--Brian K. Vaughan, Saga

"Simply amazing work. An absolute tour de force, both respectful and audacious in the treating of the material." --Kieron Gillen, Once & Future

"This tragic, bleakly funny take on Vonnegut's defining work will send enthused readers back to the source, and deserves a place beside it on the shelf."-- "Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"

"With this work, North and Monteys have created the best, and most effective, graphic novel adaptation of a literary novel in recent memory."-- "Library Journal, Starred Review"

"I'm in awe at the mastery of the medium shown in SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE. Ryan and Albert have perfectly adapted Vonnegut's masterpiece to comics, elevating the story in a fresh and beautiful way, taking full advantage of the inherent language of the medium. They've created a benchmark far out of reach of the rest of us in the industry. I ... hate them?"--CHIP ZDARSKY, Sex Criminals
