bookshelves: mystery
Read in January, 2010

The graphic novel Troublemaker is the third in Janet Evanovich's Alex Barnaby series following two print novels - Metro Girl and Motor Mouth. I had no problem following the graphic novel without having read the previous books. The short character introductions were invaluable.

Troublemaker is wonderfully drawn. I enjoy graphic novels with clean lines and crisp colors over heavily shaded or unnecessarily complicated drawings and Troublemaker was absolutely perfect in that respect.

Book One of Troublemaker begins an exciting story involving voodoo and kidnapping. It was full of Evanovich's trademark humor and romantic mystery. The flow of the story story did feel a little choppy at times and felt short on words, even for a graphic novel.

Troublemaker: Book One consists of the first four chapters of the story, which is normal for graphic novels but may annoy Evanovich's print fans that are venturing into this media for the first time. Troublemaker: Book One is a fun read and is sure to attract many of Evanovich's longtime fans. It isn't quite as addicting as her usual fare, but it's a solid start and has good crossover potential.
