Let's get it started, ok?
If you've read this or planning on reading it, you're most definitely a fan of "Chuck".
And if we, the fans, have to be honest, a huge part of the show's appeal was in the humour and Chuck's ridiculous antics.
When i started reading, i was a little disappointed. It was obvious the artist(s) gave their best. The likeness to the characters (Especially Casey, gen. Backman and the nerd herd-ers)was simply incredible. It seems the artist had quite the trouble with Sarah, b

This really doesn't hold up well at all to where the TV show went after the first season. The writers just seem to want to fly off to various locales, in an attempt to avoid a big budget for an actual TV show. Comic book art for a TV show, when everyone knows what the characters look like, is difficult, and this wasn't an especially good effort. The storyline, involving a Barack Obama character, wasn't that great. And the Captain Awesome-derived humor didn't age well, given that the writers deci ...more

Went and picked up the Chuck graphic novel last weekend after watching the show's finale. It's actually pretty good, definitely better than the cheap tie-in I expected.

It's actually written by Zev Borow and Peter Johnson, who were writers on some of the early episodes. It's a fun story where Chuck, Casey, and Sarah save Senator O'Bannon (aka: Obama stand-in). Pretty light-hearted story that slots in well early on in the show's continuity. I recommend if you're craving just a little bit more Chu

Hmm... me gusta que hagan comics de series que me gustan, (casi) siempre se agradece ver más sobre personajes que te interesan. Y bueno, este comic esta bien. A secas. La historia no tiene nada de especial y eso de meter a Obama me ha parecido un poco forzado. Además, el dibujo me ha parecido muy pobre. Y solo se centra en Chuck, Casey y Sarah, el Buy More y la familia de Chuck apenas salen de pasada.

I love Chuck. This was a fun little story, and I really liked Captain Awesome's little side comics as well.
The art was pretty great. Good likeness for the majority of the characters. The only character who's comic version I wasn't a fan of was Sarah. The comic version of her really didn't look like her at all.

The dialogue and relations between the characters is spot on, strong likenesses, apart from Sarah who has none of te beaut of Yvonne Strahovski, but the plot is entertaining and rollicks past and all the humour is there.

It was a very poorly drawn book, but if you're a fan of the show, then you will like it.

I liked Captain Awesome's story better. Chuck's was... disjointed. Although kudos for making the characters look just like their tv counterparts. I'll stick with the tv show.
