The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel: Volume 2

20530924Goodreads Says:    The second volume of a glorious two-volume, four-color graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman's #1 New York Times bestselling and Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning novel The Graveyard Book, adapted by P. Craig Russell and illustrated by an extraordinary team of renowned artists.

Inventive, chilling, and filled with wonder, Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book reaches new heights in this stunning adaptation. Artists Kevin Nowlan, P. Craig Russell, Galen Showman, Scott Hampton, and David Lafuente lend their own signature styles to create an imaginatively diverse and yet cohesive interpretation of Neil Gaiman's luminous novel.

Volume Two includes chapter six to the end of the book.



My Thoughts:

-    I think more books should be adapted into graphic novels. This was so much fun! It is a great way to experience books in a new way.

-    I liked the first volume more than the 2nd, but I liked the first half of the original better as well.

-    I think I might enjoy the graphic novel more than the original. The artists did a great job illustrating the book.

-    The different illustrators worked out a lot better in this one. It was more consistent. 

-    I loved the illustrations! Great portrayal of everything! 

-    I love the bitter sweet ending to this tale. Bod has to grow up and live his own life, but I feel sad about everything he has to leave.

-    Even though I knew what was coming, it was still exciting to see/read some of the scenes. 

-    Wonderful adaptation! Every fan of The Graveyard Book should check these out!
