I have not seen the movie, but after reading this graphic novel I probably will have to see it. The g.n. was excellent. It was well written; the artwork was gritty, dark and was as moving as the dialogue. I really was taken aback by the whole thing. It really caught me off guard. I thought hey, the movie did okay, why not give it a shot; what can I lose? Pretty much a night’s sleep.
The thing I think or at least hope is that the graphic novel is an excellent vehicle to reach people in a different way. I would not have even thought about viewing the movie if not for seeing the g.n.. There are many authors of novels that are using the g.n. format now, and I have seen many movies now use this as an extension of the movie itself. Some are prequels or new action in the series that helps build the legend and keep the characters fresh for some fans. I have gotten a few family members that have seen the film take a look at just the images in the graphic novel to see if the artwork did the movie justice. They felt it was spot on, especially after they review some of the dialogue.
Whether or not you have seen the film of the same name, this is a really good suspenseful graphic novel. All is not revealed till the very last frame. I am not a fright guy, but this was captivating, and hard to be separated from. Fast, action filled, a good mystery, and above all well written, well drawn, and great execution. Check it out. Have you seen the movie?
