Synopsis : When Nancy Drew and Ned Nickerson attempt to return a lost dog named “Togo” to its owner in the small town of Nevershare, they stumble onto a much bigger mystery—where did all the people go?

Review : Graphics are wonderful, storyline is o.k. which is kind of what I expected. This was my very first Nancy Drew story

When I first saw that this comic book was going to be re-published to include two graphic novels in one, I immediately e-mailed +Stefan Petrucha to see if he had any ARC's up for grabs. He didn't, but he did forward my e-mail to +Papercutz and they ended up sending me a copy! I was so excited, even if it is a book for people 8-12 years old, I believe any age range can enjoy Nancy Drew no matter what! I grew up playing the Nancy Drew games, and even though I am super huge on books, I didn't even ...more

This is an interesting story in that it takes something from the older Nancy Drew where she had a dog named Togo, and works it into the story.

Hannah is scared by something and Nancy and the girls find a window where the thing escaped from. Nancy goes into a tree to follow it and something jumps on her face. Enter Togo. Nancy goes to the town the dog supposedly came from to return it and finds no one there except for old elderly, rather nasty woman. This leads to the mystery of where is everyone

The series brings the world’s most famous girl detective, Nancy Drew, into the graphic novel format. In this story a lost dog leads Nancy and her boyfriend Ned to the small town of Nevershare, but why are all its citizens gone except for Ms. Byra Tussle, the dog Togo’s owner? If she is his owner, why does she get his name wrong? Then again, why does Togo seem afraid of Byra? With Nancy Drew on the case you can bet the mysteries get solved! 13th in the series.
I read this for a graphic novel genre

Doggone Town is a graphic novel based on the Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene. In this mystery, Nancy finds a missing dog. As she and her boyfriend, Ned, return the dog, the discover an ornery lady and an entire missing town. Together, they find the missing people and discover the truth behind this mean lady.

Especially after reading American Born Chinese, this graphic novel felt really young. I read a Nancy Drew book or two when I was in middle school, so I thought I'd give this a try. The pic

I read this because WOW, I just had to see what the graphic novel of Nancy Drew was like. Overall, it was a cute little story about a dog that ends up in Nancy's room during a storm and the mystery Nancy encounters while trying to track down the dog's owner... My thoughts?

Pros:
* Nancy was actually strawberry blonde again!
* Ned & Bess were SUPER cute
* Brings Nancy Drew to a whole new audience

Cons:
* The storyline was WAAAAY too simple. No misdirection or anything—it was OBVIOUS who the bad guy

Funny how I'm reviewing book #13 first, but that is where I started and whatever, I'll review the previous twelve when I get time. I find these graphic novels to completely take away from the real Nancy Drew.

This plot was twisted yes and it left me guessing, but I don't understand how people could be so gulibale and stupid. And that dog was driving me nuts with it's habit of latching on to faces, I would have beat that thing silly, it wasn't even drawn to look cute, just plain.

I liked the twist

“Doggone Town (Nancy Drew: Girl Detective Graphic Novels #13)” by Stefan Petrucha is the first book in the “Nancy Drew: Girl Detective Graphic Novels” series that I have read. I thought the art of the dog was cute, and it was mainly like a comic book. One of the character drawings was kind of ugly, but other than that….I enjoyed it, and I want to read book one.

Didn't know they had started making these into a comic series. But upon reflection it makes sense.

E brought some home and I read them. Ok. But I like the books better. She liked the action agent part a bit more than the Nancy Drew sort of silly mysteries. Overall she likes the combo Drew-Hardy comics best.

It was good I really like this series of books well the comic versions that's kinda my thingIt is about a dog and a lost city (the population is only 42). The drawings are not my favorite they aren't as realistic as I would want them to be and they sort of bother me don't get me wrong, I really love this series and will keep on reading them.

I liked the Nancy Drew series and like the graphic novel idea. It was quicker to read but wasn't like the original. It had the same characters and the plot was the same. The artist was good and there were some pretty weird pictures. I liked the graphic novel better than the original. I am going to read more of the series.

This is yet another light-hearted and fast-paced Nancy Drew graphic novel. The mystery is quite strange but turns out to be fair, and Nancy gets to interact with a friendly dog.
