I am doing two graphic novels together here in this post. I have been trying to vary the stuff I am reading and always looking for new stuff to throw at you and this was just something I couldn’t pass up. I am going to admit from the get go that I had not run into Laurell K. Hamilton’s work before this, but am glad I did. I think it gave me a firm base to start from if I grab any of her full length novels. For those like myself that haven’t come across her New York Times Bestselling full length novels she is the author of Anita Blake : Vampire Hunter and also the Merry Gentry novels. She has more than twenty novels in print and continues to more. She has millions of fans all over the world that enjoy her creative blend of fantasy, mythology and horror.
Anita Blake is a great character. I really enjoy it when a big time author crosses over into the graphic novel arena and does a different take on their characters. I feel it gives us the fans a new perspective and appreciation for the authors skills as we finally see what their written world looks like and how it flows. I have to say for me the entire plotline was very original and was not your usual run of the mill vampire, paranormal storyline. The main character herself is a breath of fresh air amongst many soon to be animated corpses.
Both graphic novels were well paced and chock full of action and interesting characters. There are plenty of villain’s, or are they good guys, I am not sure, read at your pearl. Hamilton has the goods to hang with the best with these stories; I can say that having read a few of them. The artwork is excellent the colors are vivid, the plotlines are fun .If you are into this sort of stuff, the vampire, paranormal funfest, these are excellent graphic novels, give them a try.
