Overview

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-top-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles--dead or alive. Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda, the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. Django and Schultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie, the proprietor of "Candlyand", an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen, Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

As a film, Quentin Tarantino's Djano Unchained generated positive reviews, controversy, and awards. As a graphic novel, it vividly displays the reasons why: This story of a brave freedman whose sole mission is to find and rescue his enslaved wife unfolds in an exciting, morally complex way. There is simply no escaping the power of its presentation as rendered here by the director/screenwriter and illustrator R.M. Gueraur.

Publishers Weekly
11/18/2013
This graphic novel amounts to a highly visual narrative abridgment of the first draft of Tarantino’s Oscar-winning screenplay for last year’s film. As Tarantino notes in his introduction, anything he had to excise in the process of putting his story on the big screen has made its way into the graphic novel. The story, set two years before the advent of the Civil War, brings together a slave named Django and Dr. King Schulz, a German bounty hunter, who happens to be in hot pursuit of Django’s former owners. With the honesty and brutality that we’ve come to expect from Tarantino, the story examines the relationship between these unlikely partners, and terrifyingly illuminates one of the darkest eras in American history. Despite adding much new material, this graphic adaptation is pitch-perfect, and the illustrations are gorgeous, despite their brutality. Although Tarantino is often thought of as a filmmaker who forces horrifying clarity on viewers, as this graphic novel reminds us, often what he chooses not to show us is even worse. (Nov.)
