Presenting Peter Kuper’s acclaimed adaptation of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle with powerful imagery and bold interplay of art and text. “The Jungle”, Sinclair’s most influential novel, recounts the shocking tale of immigrant Jurgis Rudkus and his family, who find themselves at the mercy of a brutal system in the stockyards of Chicago. The original book’s exposure of the dangerous, unsanitary conditions in the meatpacking industry created a public furor that led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act. The mood and atmosphere is captured beautifully by Kuper’s art and text for this graphic novel adaptation of a classic book that is still read by high school students and many others to this day.

Peter Kuper’s celebrated work has appeared in Time magazine, Newsweek, The New York Times, and MAD magazine, where he currently writes and illustrates Spy vs. Spy. He founded the political comics magazine World War III in 1987. Comics work includes an adaptation of Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis (Crown) the short story collection Give it Up! and Comics Trips (both NBM Pub). His work Sticks and Stones, a wordless graphic novel about the rise and fall of empires, was awarded the gold medal in the sequential arts category in the 2004 Society of Illustrators competition.
