Bod is an orphan taken in by residents of a graveyard. He has their protection as well. Silas is his guardian and he is a Vampire. Bod is short for Nobody Owens. He is ...more
Sometimes the characters were beautiful, sometimes ugly and sometimes very "meh" in appearance. The thing is, I could be talking about the same person. Each vignette had a different artist , which was slightly disconcerting. As soon as I get used to one portrayal of a character - we'd be on to the next artist. I like consistency. A few times the characters appeared so differently that I needed cont ...more
A little live boy is taught the ways of the world by the spectral residents of a cemetery.
I've not read Gaiman's original book, but I really enjoyed this graphic adaptation of the story. Can't wait to start volume II.
I thought this graphic novel was awesome! I loved the fact that Bod (Nobody Owens) lived in the graveyard!
Through some unfortunate events his family were killed, but he had wandered off to the graveyard before he could be killed. He was still just a toddler. The ghosts from the graveyard and Silas, whom I'm assuming is a vampire, take him in and raise him! :) I totally love it!
The graphics were awesome! Bod got into some hairy situations but always got out o ...more
This is an adaptation by P. Craig Russell of Neil Gaiman’s award winning novel ‘The Graveyard Book’. It contains chapter one through the interlude. Volume two includes chapter six through the end.
Though the concept seemed a bit strange at first, I enjoyed Nobody Owens character and his little adventures around the graveyard. His primary care taker Si ...more
P. Craig Russell has managed to perfectly capture Gaiman's story in this illustrated form and reunites the reader once again with Nobody Owens (aka Bod), his mysterious guardian, Silas, the equally mysterious Miss Lupescu and the witch, Liza Hempstock (who may be related to Lettie from The Ocean at the End of the Lane).
This graphic novel ticks all of ...more
I like Neil Gaiman’s comics and short stories but I’ve never really enjoyed his novels in the way a lot of other rea ...more

I wish I had in my possession the second volume, because you are definitely left wanting more. I could just read the actual book, lets be honest for a second, but then I would miss out on the wonderful illustrations. It must be said (in my opinion) that the imagery in this graphic novel isn’t my favourite. I put this down to it being ill ...more
The Graveyard Book is about a boy named Bod (Nobody) Owens. When we first meet our protagonist he is a toddler who wanders into the graveyard. He was at the right place at the ...more
It was just as I imagined it would be. Perfect. I loved reading this book. The detail, the story line, the dialogue, the characters, it was all easy. It was all entertaining and it kept your attention.

This was... I have no words. What a crazy, unexpected, fantastical journey this was. An adventure that would have caused anyone to sit a moment and wonder if life was truly like this. And to think, it all started with a very graphic murder in the beginning.
What a fun ride!
I read "The Graveyard Book", the novel, when it came out, so I normally wouldn't buy the graphic novel volumes, too. But this time I did, and I'm really happy, because this volume is lovely.
"The Graveyard Book", in any incarnation, is a series of short stories about a boy who grows up raised by ghosts and a vampire, and has the freedom of the grave ...more
For the adaptation, the book has been divided into two volumes. The script isn't bad, but I don't think the original book is very well suited for the graphic novel treatment. Very little of Gaiman's work is, actually. There's so much in the narration, which leads to a lot o ...more
It was fun to see one of my favorite books come alive (haha) in this graphic novel.
The artwork was amazing. Nearly everything was exactly the way I imagined it while I read The Graveyard Book years ago, especially Silas.
I would recommend this if you liked the original book and like graphic novels.
Note: This is a review for both volume 1 and 2
Thank you to Bloomsbury Publishers Australia for sending me copies of these books in exchange for an honest review
Although I'm still a newbie when it comes to the realm of graphic novels, I can say with confidence that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this visual representation based on the original novel 'The Graveyard Book' by Neil Gaiman. In both volume one and volume two, I could definitely see th ...more
What's it about?
This kid's family was killed when he was a baby and he was the only survivor. He wandered into a graveyard when the door of the family's house was open and now he's being raised by ghosts and a vampire.
The art is just wonderful! All the artists did an amazing job! I love the art and can't help but talk about how wonderful it is!
The first chapter ...more
