One of my upcoming projects is illustrating a graphic novel version of The Die is Cast, a Sartre play adapted by Ted Rall. He finalized a deal for publication, as mentioned in Publishers Weekly:

“Merrilee Heifetz at Writers House has closed two graphic novel deals for Pulitzer-winning political cartoonist Ted Rall (who’s also president of the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists). The first, for two projects, is with Terry Nantier of NBM. Nantier took world rights to Rall’s trilogy, the first of which is called The Year of Loving Dangerously, the cartoonist’s memoir about being a Columbia dropout in 1980s New York City. Nantier also nabbed world rights to Rall’s The Die is Cast, his comics adaptation of John-Paul Sartre’s existential work about two star-crossed lovers in Paris who don’t meet until the afterlife, Les Jeux Sont Faits. The second deal, with Dan Simon at Seven Stories, is for The Post-American Manifesto, Rall’s updated take on Marx’s Communist Manifesto, in which he, per Heifetz, offers a ‘call to action for Americans ready to move toward a new system where the average person is society’s top priority.'”
