“Arresting . . . Able to convey some things that text—and even a TV show—never could.”
―The New York Post
“A rich, visceral approach to telling the story.”
"Nault spectacularly transforms lines and color into fear, resignation, desperation, and the tiniest glimmers of hope."
―Publishers Weekly, starred review
"[Y]ou owe it to yourself to check out Renée Nault's take on the classic dystopian story."
“There is magic in every detail of Ms. Nault’s adaptation, thoughtfulness in each panel, an intentionality about every aspect of it, the costuming, the sets and her interpretation of Gileadean iconography is stark, sometimes shocking and beautifully rendered.”
―Good Men Project
“There’s something about Renee Nault’s art that makes the reader feel both closer to the action and completely, terrifyingly, alone . . . This is the power of graphic novels―the ability to add that extra emotional pull to an already strong story.”
“This is great comics. If you agree that the most basic definition of comics is a fluid dance between words and pictures, you will very likely be struck by the beauty of this book . . . What Nault has done here is stunning.”
―Seattle Review of Books
"Haunting . . . Impossible to look away from."
―The Mary Sue
The Handmaid's Tale: The Graphic Novel was released in spring of 2019 and immediately established itself as a critically acclaimed bestseller.
Renee Nault was chosen by author Margaret Atwood to adapt and illustrate Atwood's 1985 classic dystopian novel into a 240 page graphic work. Each page is hand-painted in vivid watercolor.
The book can be purchased at your favorite bookstore or online. Copies signed by the artist are available through the shop page. Several foreign-language translations are on the way for 2020.
