Publisher William Heinemann, which originally published the novel in 1960 in Britain, will also publish the graphic novel. Fred Fordham – the author/illustrator behind Philip Pullman's first graphic novel – will draw and adapt the work.

"Fred's work has a quality that surpasses time, just like the novel he will bring to life in a new way," said the Estate of Harper Lee in a statement.
