Publishing house Humanoids has just announced a deal at San Diego Comic-Con with sci-fi author Robert Silverberg to adapt a number of his novels into comics and live action entertainment.
Downward To The Earth will be the first adaptation and it will be made into a graphic novel written by Philippe Thirault with art by Laura Zuccheri, known for Miss: Better Live Through Crime and The Swords of Glass respectively. The graphic novel should be released sometime in 2016. You can see an excerpt at the bottom of this post.
Joining the general adaptation endeavors will be Game of Thrones producer Vince Gerardis:
“I’ve been admiring the quality of Humanoids graphic novels for decades. Always employing the highest caliber artists, they’ve become a formidable global comics and IP brand. I’m happy to join with them in developing my first few graphic novels, and to guide their produced content to screens and derivative media.” – Vince Gerardis
