  • The first ever graphic novel version of Animal Farm - a Times Book of the Year

    Animal Farm is the story of what happens when the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master, and how their revolution goes horribly wrong. Now George Orwell's dark, timeless fable has been turned into a graphic novel for the very first time, illustrated in full colour by the renowned Brazilian artist Odyr to bring us a whole new work of art.

    'This brightly coloured homage to Orwell's timely allegory is heartbreaking and elegant. Odyr's images of animals casting off their bonds and then living with the results of their revolution are painterly and evocative, both loose and illuminating' The New York Times

Odyr was born in 1967 in Brazil. He is a comics artist and painter, whose books include Copacabana and Guadalupe. His work has been included in several anthologies and his short stories and illustrations have been published in many Brazilian magazines and newspapers.
