Great, but hard to read on the Nook.

A great story with Christopher Moore's trademark humor, along with fantastic artwork. My only complaint is that the pages are very scrunched up and the text is difficult (and in several panels impossible) to read. This is the first graphic novel I have read on my Nook, ...
A great story with Christopher Moore's trademark humor, along with fantastic artwork. My only complaint is that the pages are very scrunched up and the text is difficult (and in several panels impossible) to read. This is the first graphic novel I have read on my Nook, so I'm not sure if this is a common problem. Something like the magazine article view would be better.

This graphic novel seemed like a home run to me. I'm a huge Christopher Moore fan, having read all but two of his novels and list him as my favorite writer. Add to that the fact that I have been an avid comic book reader for sixteen years. I have often said that many of Moore's works would be perfect for an animated show on the likes of Comedy Central or HBO. That isn't a far stretch from a graphic novel. Here however what I read was lacking so much. Overall, the plot is interesting and a small fraction of the dialogue is Moore-like. The rest is really bad though. There are enormous problems with the timeline as things happen at different times but the reader can't tell that. I kept turning pages and felt pages or panels were missing. Part of that comes from the artist, Jennyson Rosero, who might be a good artist but here proves not a very good story teller. Many of the panels prove hard to decipher what is happening because many of the characters never change facial expressions. Overall, as sad as it is for me to say this, this book looks like it was made by people who don't usually work in this form, which is true but unfortunate. I expected a lot more especially for the price. I can't wait to read the next Moore novel which will hopefully be in his wheelhouse.
