A Graphic Novel Version of 'To Kill A Mockingbird' Will Be Published in 2018!

Just read an article on Bustle titled, Harper Lee's Estate Just Endorsed A "To Kill A Mockingbird" Graphic Novel by Maddy Foley. In the article, Maddy Foley wrote the following:
In a statement earlier this week, Harper Lee's estate announced that the story of Scout Finch, whose childhood in small town Alabama is punctuated by a racially-charged trial and the heartbreaking aftermath, will soon hit shelves in a graphic re-telling. The project will be helmed by artist Fred Fordham, who recently collaborated with Phillip Pullman on The Adventures of John Blake: Mystery of the Ghost Ship. "Adapting a story that means so much to so many – and finding the appropriate art style to give it life in a long-form visual medium – is a great honor and responsibility, and, mercifully, also a great pleasure," Mr. Fordham told The Guardian.
Wow, this is epic news indeed! I will be interested in reading the graphic novel version of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I'm simply hoping that it will be a spectacular rendition and do the original novel justice.
