I'm not a big fan of graphic novels. It's not that I have a thing against the genre, I don't. It's just I can go through a story in an hour or so.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This is the second Graphic Novel that is an original Dresden Files story. The first is Welcome to the Jungle. He does have his first two novels, Storm Front and Fool Moon in graphic novel form.
I enjoyed this story, and it's nice to Dresden out of Chicago and in another state. The story was well written, with a twist here and there. The graphics still just as lovely and well done, art work. Typical Dresden tale, not disappointing, and worth the time to read it. I waited till it came out in the complete tale. It was released in segments originally.

This is the 6th graphic novel in the Dresden Files universe. I’ve managed to read books 1 & 2, but haven’t gotten my hands on library copies of 3, 4 and 5. This story doesn’t follow along the lines of the novels or short stories, it’s not a retelling. It’s a completely new tale set after Fool Moon and one I enjoyed tremendously. Of course, I don’t think there’s a Dresden book yet that I haven’t liked.
Harry is trying to track a Black Lagoon-type creature when a small town Missouri deputy comes to his office looking to hire him for an unusual problem. People in one family are dying and in very strange circumstances. Strange in the way that Harry knows so well, by supernatural means. So Harry agrees to help and heads to Boone Mill. Unfortunately, nothing is ever easy for Harry.
Having only read books 1 & 2 in the graphic novel universe and that was a few years ago, I can’t really compare the illustrations to say if I like this illustrator better than the others. I do like the illustrations in this novel and the story was very interesting. I also liked that this was a new story in the Dresden Universe and not a retelling of a previous one. Nothing wrong with retellings, but it’s always a pleasure to read a new one about Harry since the Dresden Files is up there among my favorite series.
I’m not a huge fan of graphic novels, but I’ll read the Dresden Files any day of the week. Bring on the next one.
