I think that this will be the last graphic novel I ever read. I was initially excited by the sheer size of this novel - 392 pages. Surely I would get a good opinion from this I thought. Surely this would change my opinion to a more positive light? Sadly I was wrong.

The artwork is too simplistic and the colour palette of black, white and blue simply didn't allow the full wonder of this story to be revealed.

Meg came out looking angry in almost every cell. Charles-Wallace is not convincing and seriously, who cares about the other characters? See, right >there< is where the problem is. The other characters didn't fair so well in this retelling and if you don't care for the characters, why bother reading the book?

A lot of the dialogue remains true to the original but the artwork didn't hold up its end of the bargain to tell the story. Expressions look the same no matter what they are proposed. The great battle between Meg and IT for the heart of Charles-Wallace was told in 11 cells; not much for a great battle at all. In all fairness, the Tesseract was succinctly show in two cells on page 139.

It just didn't do it for me I'm afraid. Graphic novels are nothing more than glorified comic books and I wont be reading any more.

Oh My Goodness! This was amazing. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves the actual book and for anyone who likes graphic novels. The art was great and the words were flowing. A must read!!!!!!

I always found the original novel too confusing to read through so I was excited to see the book in this new format! The illustrator did a fantastic job of portraying the subtleties of emotion that are integral to the characters development however I felt like some of the richness of the plot and characters was lost by only using blue, white and black colouring. I would love to see the sequels in this format.

I like how they know how to transport themselves across land in a super fast way. It is almost like teleporting. I also like that they meet all these giant tentacle monsters. There is this really creepy brain but it actually so bad it can trap you. Yikes!

All I can say is this is faithful to the original novel and the art is excellent. Other than that, it's just another graphic novel.
