Reading a graphic novel that is based on a non-graphic novel is a bit like seeing a movie based on a book you've read, I've decided. I judge whether the characters look like I expected them to (mostly yes, they are very good renditions), how closely or far the story deviates from the original (it is so minor I could not discern any noticeable gaps) and how satisfying the overall experience is compared to the original (as a different way).

I would recommend this to both readers of Artemis Fowl and newbies. The illustrations easily replace some of the text of the original, without losing any meaning. The narration is handled quite well, with Artemis' thoughts appearing in a box with one color, and Holly's thoughts in a different colored box.

If you want to know about the story, check out my review of the original, here:
