Not every novel should go graphic In fact a lot of times I don't understand why stories get adapted into the graphic novel form In large part it feels like publishers trying to capitalize on an already popular story The best graphic novels were generally conceptualized for the strengths of the graphic novel medium Because of my biases this way I wasn't expecting much from this graphic novel adaptation of Colfer's The Supernaturalist I had read the original prose work on talking book years ago And I remembered it positivelyOn first glance I didn't see the point of this And I didn't really like the art either The way Rigano draws figures is not particularly accessible There is some manga influence stylistically And the panels are generally relatively small The color palette is dark with a heavy green lean But once I got into the story I was immediately sucked into this world Being able to SEE the Parasites draining people of life was far affecting than reading a description of the act or listening to someone read a description of the act And my FAVORITE part of the whole thing comes by in the first ten pages of the story I was intrigued by the testing on the orphans when I heard them mentioned in print and wanted to know The way this is communicated in the graphic novel is extremely effective and succinct Reading this graphic novel made me realize that sci fi is a genre that works exceedingly well in graphic form It's difficult to describe technical specifications of imagined technology In graphic form we can see what the author intends right there on the page I find it much easier to follow I loved this so much I intend to booktalk it to the middle school students in my community in the near future I'll be booktalking both the prose and the graphic novel form and let the students choose for themselvesSO good

Worst Adaptation Ever The art is so crabbed and tiny that I often couldn't make out either the characters or the action and ended up just reading the text boxes and dialogue balloons Fortunately you can get the whole story from those which makes me suspect that Colfer knew there was a problem I strongly recommend skipping this and going to the original version

What a ride When I reached the middle of the book I was seriously considering giving up and not finishing it I kept getting left with too many uestions and wasn't enjoying the art too much but since it's only 128 pages I figured I should just finish it and I'm glad I did This story would make an awesome TV show in my opinion; with time to develop the plot and characters it could really be something
