Graphic novel adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic The Martian Chronicles coming down the canal

In a wide-ranging, 13-minute video interview entitled "Ray Bradbury: The Illustrated Man", posted on the website of publishing house Macmillan, the timeless guy of Sci-Fi talks about cartoons, comic strips, carnivals, graphic novels, Mars, Disney, flying, and his classic novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953). Although the interview is really part of a promotional campaign for the new authorized graphic adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury also reveals that a graphic novel adaptation of The Martian Chronicles (1950) will be coming down the canal in the near future!
