it was ok

You know, while this was okay, it seems to gloss over the story really quickly. I guess this seems like what would be a problem with doing graphic adaptations of novels, but Steve Niles did a brilliant job with I Am Legend (and fuck that Will Smith movie, man), so it can be done well.

Anyhow, even in the original novel there's not a lot of beautiful, brilliant prose, but the characters and story are still effective. You become attached to them, and you get a real sense of the time span that the story takes place over.

In the graphic novel everything feels like it takes place in one afternoon, I didn't feel any attachment to the characters, none of the villains felt menacing at all...

Some of the art is pretty cool though.

I guess if you're a big fan, give it a read. Otherwise, don't bother.
