Reviews

"Personally I thought the graphic novel was quite faithful to the book (more so than the film!) and is akin to a 125 page visual summary. It only missed out 4 scenes from the book: Aunty Em's Garden Gnome Emporium (which was released online as a "deleted scene" before its release), Waterland, Crusty's Waterbed Palace, and the end fight with Luke in the forest. I thought the artwork was pretty good, though sometimes lacks continuity (i.e. Ares's mullet being in one frame and disappearing in the next). It is drawn to a generally good standard with some close-up panels being exceptionally detailed. The colour is also good, occasionally going over the panel border but I think that adds to the charm of a comic book. Shading is also used to great effect in some of the more detailed panels. The paper is of high quality which somewhat enhances the comic in my opinion. The hardback dust sleeve has embossed lettering, and the actual binding of the book has some panels or bits of panels from the story; some in black and white, others glossy and in colour. Overall I was impressed. If you're interested in Japanese manga or comics, buy it!"
