The Handmaid's Tale Has Been Turned Into a Graphic Novel and It's Stunning

The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood's dystopian classic, was originally published in 1985 and has seen immense success due in part to the Hulu adaptation (that took home countless awards).

And now, thanks to artist Renee Nault, The Handmaid's Tale has been gifted with another adaptation, this one taking the shape of a graphic novel that's spellbinding, slowly dragging you in each page at a time.

Renee Nault's talent is unnerving and jaw-dropping, she manages to create the faces behind these characters that are so complex, wounded, and in dire circumstances.

Opening The Handmaid's Tale graphic novel, I couldn't help but feel cautious, as if the characters could come alive off the page. It's beautiful and serene, terrifying and calming, and as a testament to the artist, perfectly encapsulates one of the most powerful books released in the 21st century.

Renee Nault, a Canadian artist, was hand selected by Atwood herself to help adapt the award winning novel. Thanks to her talent and immense eye for design, Nault tells the story of Offred, a woman living under dystopian rule in the Republic of Gilead.

The Handmaid's Tale graphic novel is jaw-dropping and rightfully so. It took Nault two years to complete. Her hard work has paid off and it is evident in the 240 pages of this thoughtful work of art.

Terrifying and beautiful, this graphic adaptation is worthy of worldwide success and praise. The story is hauntingly familiar, but the art is renowned and deserves all of your attention.
