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

Nice short graphic novel that complements the film really well-- it serves to flesh out the lives of Jennifer's victims. If you love the movie, you'll dig this :) and each of the chapters is drawn by a different artist, which is cool.

I impulsively bought this graphic novel on sale and I'm not disappointed with it.

I'm an avid fan of the film and it's really great to have a token of it come to life.

Jennifer Check is a great temptress. In four chapters, you could see how her victims are lured into her traps. The illustrations are really great although the dialogues are a bit trashy and the ending was a bit cliff-hanger. In general, it was very sexy and dark.

Meh.
A teenage girl in an American town is really a demon who kills teenage boys, it could have gone either way but it ended up not so great.( Having read other reviews I now realise it is based on a movie. Never heard of it, but I suspect that accounts for a large portion of the vapidity of the story).

So, the story: It is pretty superficial, in each chapter we are introduced to another teen boy from the high school then in the last page, Jennifer kills them. Yawn. It is interesting the first t

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

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

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.

I picked this book up at the library on a whim. I was reading a lot of graphic novels at the time and this one looked sufficiently interesting. I found the art style a bit unnvering. It didn't sit plainly in one style, which ruined the feel of the comic a bit. Furthermore, the shifting perspectives of the characters made for a slightly jarring read. The short stories in it - as the book itself is divided into several short stories about boys being devoured by... Jennifer's body - seemed a bit po ...more

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.

I find it hilarious at some point, but most of it is different from the movie. Such as every chapter is in the victims perspective and how they die. Anyway, it was good, funny and very gory. One of my favorite movies turned into a graphic novel!!!

Meh. I loved the movie, but this disappointed me. It was just quite disjointed.

*2.5*
The movie was much better and some of the scenes were too short (typical for a comic book) and I was hoping for more content and hopefully a visually detailed story.
Myk Walker
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).

Exactly like the movie!
