No. No no no no no no no no no no noooooooooo A GRAPHIC NOVEL? (It was bound to happen, but still). I think Clare should donate some of her money to her fans for being so loyal and buying every piece of garbage she manages to crap out of her ass. Just, UGH. What's next, huh? A video game?

How I see miss Cash Cow:


Anyway, that's how I feel about her. Carry on.

Both Barnes & Noble and Amazon say this:

What??? I thought there already was a graphic novel--you know, the one where the people on the cover looked like Steve and Terri Irwin? What happened to that?

Look, I know better than anyone that The Mortal Instruments and all its offshoots are part of a gigantic cash cow with the false specter that is Cassandra Clare at is center, but I never knew it was so bad, they'd end up making multiple different graphic novels based on the same book just to keep milking and milking. This is ridiculous.

I read the first 8 pages in a sampler sent from the publisher. Not impressed with the art. It makes the story seem less cool.

Nicole Virella is good but I prefer Adam Gottbetter
This City of Bones graphic novel did a really good job portraying the story line. The artwork is fabulous. I think they captured the characters perfectly! Can't wait to read the rest!!
