We’re becoming increasingly accustomed to the adaptation of comic books into movies. But Jonathan Kellerman, like the fictitious Rick Castle, is going another way—at least one of his books, is being adapted into a graphic novel.
Silent Partner, the graphic novel, comes out this week and Kellerman (himself an erstwhile cartoonist and comic book fan) is interviewed over at Suvudu about his participation in the project and how he feels.
Although Suvudu says “with this adaptation an entirely new generation is set to experience this story of secrets and suspense for the very first time,” I wonder whether this version will attract new readers. It’s hardcover, so the price point is high for comic readers. Not impossibly so, if you’re a fan of the artist. But it may be far more likely to attract those who are already Kellerman fans.
Or maybe I’m crazy. What do you think?
