I haven’t seen this Megan Fox vehicle either on the screen or on DVD and I have no plans to do so in the feature since slasher flicks are not my cup of tea. This puts a twist on the old horror formula, as the female lead is not the one who screams, but the one with an appetite for human flesh.
I found this slickly produced hardcover in a bargain display at National Book Store on a trip out of sheer impulse. Relatively cheap hardcover graphic novels are a weakness of mine that easily pry from me a...more

This was an interesting take on the Megan Fox-headlined film. As much as I enjoyed the film, I did find it to have quite a few gaps in terms of the characters Jennifer and Needy encountered, gaps that this graphic novel effectively bridged.

Good points: the book's sections pretty much told the stories, as seen through the victims' eyes, in an engaging and effective way: I got to live their (tragically-ended) lives and actually managed to learn a lot about their backstories and how they factored i...more

If this was a faithful adaptation of the film, I won't bother to watch it, even on cable.
While the story reverses some of the cliches of the traditional slasher story, what bothered me was the innate lack of justice in the tale. Each of the male victims was lured to doom by the nature of their own aloneness, but only one did anything "wrong" to lead to this doom. The others were simply victimized by an unstoppable evil. What some creators have forgotten is that unstoppable evil that has no rules...more

Jennifer’s Body is broken into four chapters, each tells a separate story (they are, however, told in chronological order) about the clueless guys who will soon become victims of Jennifer Check, a gorgeous and popular high school cheerleader who happens to be possessed by a demon hungry for the flesh of teenage boys. In addition to focusing on a different victim, each chapter of the graphic novel is illustrated and colored by different artists. The first chapter features artwork by Jim Mahfood w...more

I thought this would be the graphic novel of the complete "Jennifer's Body" story (I loved the movie - it was trashy but very funny)... but the book offers only the stories of her victims / her killings.

And I did not like the graphic art - apart from the last few pages (the full sized pictures were drawn very good).

No high recommendation from my side... just an 'okay' in-between-read.

Gotta say I am glad I got this at a discounted price. didn't enjoy the artwork of the first chapter but it does get better.

I remember enjoying the movie ( not one of my favs mind you) but this sadly didn't add up to it.

I give it 3 stars mainly for the artwork.

Well drawn, but the story misses all of the comedy from the movie. Ends up being a kill-by-kill account, without anything of real interest taking place.

I was really hoping to like this more. It's not nearly as clever as it sets out to be. Wait for the movie next week (I guess).
