Read It File It (Short Review): Mercy Thompson Moon Called Volume 1 by Patricia Briggs was my first ever graphic novel. I am glad I started with a story I knew so that I could spend some time learning how to read the frames (sounds silly but that took a bit). I really enjoyed the graphics and thought they added a little oomph to a story I already love.

  1. I can’t enjoy graphic novels after having read the books. In my mind, the characters look so different. I just don’t like looking at the pictures at all. But I am glad you enjoyed it Felicia.

  2. I only read the first book and didn’t fall in love with it. I do plan to keep going in the series anyhow. I never thought to pick up a graphic novel of a book I’ve read, but that’s an interesting idea. I used to read comics/graphic novels a lot when I was little.

  3. I’ve read a couple of these graphic novels. I love them, though I wish the artistry was a little better. There is The Homecoming that I highly recommend that is a prequel to the Mercy Thompson series. It has the cutest picture of Mercy as a coyote pup with Bran’s shirt in her mouth.

    • I will have to see if my library has those. I picked up 2 more graphic novels this past trip (Buffy Universe)—I really do like the pictures. I just need to shift to getting the story not only from the words. That is hard for m.
