Source: Borrowed from Library
Rating: 5/5 stars
This is the second volume in The Graveyard Book graphic novel series. This book was definitely my favorite of the two graphic novels (I enjoyed the second half of The Graveyard Book better as well).
This volumes continues the adventures of Nobody Owens; the boy raised by ghosts in a graveyard in an effort to protect him from the mysterious man named Jack who killed his family. In this book Nobody (Bod) ventures outside the graveyard seeking education and starts to learn how to interact with other people. He also learns a lot more about the mysterious Jack and has to confront this enemy.
I really loved this 2nd volume in The Graveyard Book graphic novel series. There is a lot more adventure and the story is a lot deeper as Bod starts to come of age and question the world he was raised in.
The graphic novel is full of beautifully detailed illustrations that are easy to follow and fun to look at. I really enjoyed the illustration a lot.
I love the story and the history behind Jack and why he was after Bod and his family. I also loved the bittersweet ending to the story. It’s a bit melancholy, but also has a hopeful feel to it as well.
Overall this was a spectacular continuation of The Graveyard Book in graphic novel format. I have absolutely no complaints; I loved the illustration and the story. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of fantasy/supernatural graphic novels.
