Dresden In The Funnybooks

Yep, that's right.

A graphic novel featuring our fave Chi-Town wizard. This one, a prequel to the novel Storm Front.

Dresden adapts quite well to the four-color format. Butcher gives us Harry in all his quipping glory and throws in some great pairing of words and images. For instance, at the end of Chapter One, Harry has just taken out one attacking big cat only to find several more have crept up on him.

The caption reads: "Okay. That's just not fair."

Good ol' Harry.

I did notice that artist Ardian Syaf seems to channel Jim Lee and J. Scott Campbell. But unless you were looking closely, you probably didn't notice it.

Not that it's a bad thing.

Just noticed the style.

Overall, a fun read and probably a decent intro for someone unsure of the novel series.

Different format. Same Harry.

And I have to say, the Chris McGrath covers on this and on the novels are growing on me.

Now, off to the store with you...
