Nightmares anyone? ...
I love graphic novels, but I tend to avoid the gory ones... (like this one) Yet, I found Anita Blake to be quiet an interesting character and of course the story is quiet something too... I mean seriously, zombies? vampires? sign me up! I might just get the other two books.

Too bad that they're not going to turn into graphic novels some more of Anita Blake's books. I'm actually enjoying reading her stories again. Because, yeah, the details are long gone from my memory but when I'm reading I still get bits and pieces of what I read so many years ago.

I like the art in this graphic novel. I love the drawings and the colors and the also all of Anita's penguins.

Sometimes a graphic novel is useful when you can't imagine something that the original author described in her
I almost forgot what this book was all about, therefore it was nice to refresh my memories on it. I remember that I really enjoyed it and that it was quite brutal.
I liked this graphic novel but I somehow imagined it a little bit different in my head.
Completely entertaining! Great ending, with no loose ends.

Anita Blake in comic book form loses almost all of its potency. Not only because she ends up looking a little ridiculous, but the 80sness of the world becomes apparent. Jean-Claude is just unintentionally funny in his clothes and looks (have I mentioned the 80s big hair?), and frankly, most of the books are spent faffing about.

Stick to the books or borrow this.
Hannah Thomas
With previous reviews, it is gory and there's very little difference between the novel and the graphic adaption. All in all, it's still good and worth reading. In my belief, this adaption is like an R-rated movie.
Steph Moyer
This is a great adaptation in my opinion. The artwork is great, it stuck to the story, leaving out very little from the actual novel.
