Fool Moon Dresden Files Volume II Graphic Novel by Jim Butcher

I was weaned on comic books.  I lusted for them far sooner than any other recalled lust.   I credit comic books with infusing me with the love of reading.  They also must take credit for my writing as well.  Comic books were the foundation of my learning.   That makes it hard to explain that this is one of the few graphic novels I have ever read.  I read the book that inspired this graphic novel.   The book was better but this was good.  It has nuances that you miss in your own reading.  It is interesting to see how the illustrator show his vision of what is occurring and compare it to your own.  

The story has werewolves, a wizard, a cop, a mysterious criminal mastermind and some FBI agents with questionable credentials.  It is traditional Butcher with Harry Dresden way over his head in violent intrigue. 

The illustrations are darker than I see the story.   Color and shading can infer emotions.  I didn’t find the book as dark as the graphic novel.   I suspect that I would find Jim Butcher’s work appealing regardless of the venue.

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
