original work and graphic novel adaptation reviews together?

I added The Handmaid's Tale (Graphic Novel): A Novel, with a 2019 copyright date and with ISBN 038553924X to my books. The correct cover photo, etc. is showing up, but the reviews seem to be from the original work. Is this expected?
I see an entry
Work details
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (1985)
in the "Your book information" section and was wondering if this ties the reviews of the two works together?

It looks like someone has separated them now. This was a combining issue, not a bug.

And the reason that combining issues aren't bugs is that LT has features to enable users to fix combining issues. If you want to know how, or to report combining issues the right way, post in the Combiners! group.

That was me. But I was on the bus, so couldn't finish the job. I have now, I think, separated all the graphic novel editions and combined them together.

Thank you all, for the clarifications, the heads up about the Combiners! group and for the combining work. Looks good to me now. I will mark this thread as closed.

Edited: Apr 6, 11:39pm Top

I've just added a disambiguation notice and a work to work relationship which should discourage them being combined again.

Thank you!
