Graphic Novels Review – The Graveyard Book : Volume 1

Cover image for The graveyard book [graphic novel] : Volume 1 / based on the novel by Neil Gaiman ; adapted by P. Craig Russell ; illustrated by Kevin Nowlan and six others.

By Neil Gaiman & P. Craig Russell

This is an adaptation of Gaiman’s original novel, brought to life by several truly talented artists. The artwork brings to life the whimsy and macabre in equal measures, and makes for a short, sharp and shiny retelling. The story is also told in episodic bites so it’s easy to pick up and put down again – but why would you want to!?

51C7IGsOYHL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_Neil Gamian’s retelling of the dark and violent world of the Norse gods – the ultimate dysfunctional family. Norse Mythology trims down the complicated mess of stories that makes up the Norse lore into a very readable digest that covers the main story lines without having to read across many different authors and retells them in Gaiman’s grim and witty style. 5/5 stars.
