Parable of the Sower: A Graphic Novel Adaptation, by Damian Duffy with illustrations by John Jennings, has been nominated for a 2021 Eisner Award. Both men are graduates of, and have taught at, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Parable of the Sower was released in early 2020; we reviewed the book in April of last year. It's a difficult but important read. I recommend you pick it up.
The Eisner Awards are given to comics-industry creative work. They're a very big deal, and to win one is incredibly impressive. Duffy and Jennings also won an Eisner a few years ago for their graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler's Kindred.
Congrats to Duffy and Jennings!
