Having enjoyed the animated movie a lot (4-stars!), I thought I'd give this adaptation a go. It's fine enough, but definitely watch the movie first because the sound and motion add so much to the story presented here.

I must admit that I'm quite ignorant of the real world events surrounding this fantasy: Oliver Cromwell's conquest of Ireland in the 1650s. A cursory overview says it was a bloody affair that has reverberated through the centuries since. The wolf pack and supernatural beings here se

I absolutely loved "The Secret of Kells" and "The Song of the Sea," Tomm Moore's previous two films about Ireland and its mythology and legends. "WolfWalkers" looked to be just as gorgeous and impressive... and while I have yet to see the movie, its graphic novel adaptation is absolutely stunning and makes me hunger to see the movie all the more. It looks fantastic visually, tells a gripping story, and is all-in-all a wonderful read.

Irish fairytales are fascinating. The illustrations and graphics are absolutely wonderful in this graphic novel. The story felt very similar to "The Secret of Kells".

The book addresses friendship showing how kindness can beautifully transform a relationship. It also shows the detriment of blind obedience and how we should question the status quo. Dead fish can't swim upstream. But the ones that are alive can. This story poses questions and challenges 3 groups of people - parents, rulers, and ch

Love the beautiful, colorful art; love anything to do with shape-shifting and British Isle accents; love the nature, family, and folklore themes! If you're a fan of Brave, Song of the Sea, The Owl House, etc. then you'll enjoy this graphic novel adaptation of the Apple TV movie. (Note: I haven't watched the movie yet, so I can't speak to how thourough the adaptation is, but this made me excited to see it) ...more
4.5 to 5 stars. I think this definitely works better as a movie. I did enjoy the bonus content at the beginning which fleshed out the Wolfwalker lore a bit. The film references some of the added introduction we get in the graphic novel. The art is gorgeous. If you don't have access to Apple + and weren't able to sed it in theaters last month, I recommend reading the graphic novel. Its basically the movie. Hopefully we will get a DVD release of this fantastic film. For my review of the film Wolfw ...more

Lord Protector Cromwell is determined to rid the forest of Ireland of its wolves and "civilize" the country with more farmland. But the forest is filled with more than meets the eye, including the last of the legendary wolfwalkers, people that are human when awake, wolves when asleep, and have magical healing powers. Young Robyn comes to Ireland with her father, a soldier of Lord Cromwell, ready to hunt wolves. But when Robyn sneaks into the forest for her own hunt, and instead stumbles upon ano ...more

The art is incredible, but the story is fairly basic and doesn't expound on much of the background or expand on characterization which I found bland and disappointing. That being said, it is mainly a story geared for the whole family and so many will be unsurprised the story doesn't delve much deeper than the surface basics presented.

I look forward to checking out the movie and suspect it will be even more wonderful with audio and fluid visuals of the intensely vivid art!

I loved this book because it was about a legend from Ireland. In this legendary culture called Wolfwalkers, some people can turn into wolves when they sleep and also have healing powers. The book is about a girl named Robyn who meets a Wolfwalker named Mebh and how they become friends even though both of their cultures don't get along. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes myths and legends. ...more
