I loved this book, and it's one of the series I encourage people to read. However I've never really read many graphic novels. It a form that I've wanted to get into for a while, and do I thought what better place to start than on some common ground.

Interestingly this is more a labour of love than many graphic novels out there in that the author felt so strongly about its potential to transition into this format he went and Kickstartered it himself...and voila!



The story is still there just as I

A great adaptation with a fittingly gritty art style considering the source material :) a few errors in spelling here and there but pretty unnoticeable.

As a longtime fan and reader, seeing the world ...more

Between the writing and the illustrations this graphic novel takes you to a whole new world. I typically loose interest in graphic novels but this kept me hooked from the beginning until the end.

Great design of the book with colors and artwork. The character sketching is not hard to read in a murky batman kind of way. The clean storyboard and excellent artwork inside is enough to make even a non-comic book fan pick it up and start reading!
