If you've already read the original book, this graphic novel will serve as a nice review. If you haven't read the original book, you probably won't have much luck in following the story. This comic adapts the book a little TOO faithfully, and it would have worked better had it focused solely on the story of Tut's murder, rather than jumping back and forth in time to show how his tomb was later discovered and how our hero, James Patterson, eventually stepped in to solve the mystery of Tut's death ...more

I don't know why Patterson took a break from churning out his countless detective books to write this one, maybe writing murder mysteries for decades somehow qualifies one to be solve them. In any case, as a graphic novel this was ok, decent if not remarkable art. The story itself was imaginative and plausible, though to go as far as to call it a definitive solution might be a tad grandstanding. While I appreciated the amount of research that must have gone into this book, somehow reading it as ...more

I read a graphic novel version of this book, which makes it undoubtedly shorter in terms of dialogue and probably a lot different in general than the version others on here have reviewed. In any case, I thought it was interesting, but the premise of the story was mostly based on speculation and the structure was just so-so. I considered giving it four stars, but I just don't think it's worth it. Still worth a read, but definitely not the best graphic novel I've ever read.

Interesting idea to tell the story from three perspectives. I can see now why James Patterson is a popular author. His writing is quick and light, but he still does a good job at creating interesting characters. One of the other reviewers said that the book made them curious to do their own research now, and I think that's a good compliment to this book.
So this was the "graphic novel" that I guess was supposed to compliment/accompany the real book. And you know, I'm not much a fan of the comic-book style, but I liked this! There are some bonus art pieces at the end. Very short but fun!
