Found this in the ebook offerings of my public library and haven't had the patience to read it any other way. We'll see if I have the patience to read it as a graphic novel. Update: I suspect there was quite a bit of the original text missing, and the images of the graphic novel have a decidedly '70s / Logan Run look in them. All in all, not a bad way to get a quick sense of the book, though. ( )

Santino relates the story in the present tense, robbing some of its mythic feel. Staton’s unvarying three-panel page layouts fail to emphasize the story’s more dramatic moments, and his cartoony style (with monochrome art rendered in uninked, sometimes sketchy pencils) fails to match Rand’s fierce and poetic language. This short Anthem is hardly forbidding as a literary work—readers should stick with the original.

Read Joe Staton's blogs and other content on the Penguin Community.

The controversial classic work of one individual's will versus the subjugation of society-now available as a compelling graphic novel.

In all that was left of humanity there was only one man who dared to think, seek, and love. He, Equality 7-2521, would place his life in jeopardy. For his knowledge was regarded as a treacherous blasphemy. He had rediscovered the lost and holy word..."I".

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:51 -0400)

In a story told in graphic novel format, Equality 7-2521 dares to defy the ideals of collectivism in a futuristic state.
