Jim Butcher’s popular urban fantasy series The Dresden Files gets a fabulous new graphic novel makeover in The Dresden Files: War Cry. Combining the exciting world building and character development of Butcher with the dynamic beauty of illustrations by Carlos Gomez and Mohan makes for the perfect literary-novel-to-graphic-novel transition. What more could a reader ask for—except maybe something a little bit longer.A war between the Red Court of vampires and the White Council of wizards has [...]
I'm venturing into unfamiliar territory again: comic books!It's been a long time since I last read a real comic book. I probably haven't read one since I was 12 or so. This was my re-introduction.The art is fantastic but I think one of my gripes about this book (as well as in movies) is that the characters don't look as I'd imagined them. Granted, my vision of Harry was colored by the TV show, my introduction to the Dresden Files. However, the comic book still didn't quite fit my imagination.Oth [...]
This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]
This graphic novel is my first reading The Dresden Files after watching the TV show and was very surprised by the plot and am motivated to read all the books now!
READ MY ORIGINAL REVIEW ON MY BLOG: thebookaddictsblogI got this ebook from Netgalley in return of an honest review. I have heard of Jim Butcher through many sources, specially Booktube, about his Codex Alera series, so when I saw his name under the title, I had to download it.The Dresden Files seems to be an acclaimed urban fantasy series he wrote, that now gets turned into a graphic novel series. I have not read the original, but I can talk about this graphic novel as that: a graphic novel.It [...]
It's been a long time since I've seen really good art in a graphic novel but the strongest point of this one is the very strong and lovely art (if you ignore the big boobs and the short skirts slit up to there). I love the Dresden Files and this is set back in the days I liked best when the Red Court was still around and Harry was more human (and Thomas had a bigger presence). Harry and three young Wardens, including a weather witch and Ramirez (who looks as sexy as he's supposed to be in the bo [...]
Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalleyHaving been in written format for a long while and had a TV series made from the books Jim Butcher's Dresden Files have even branched out into Graphic Novel territory. This one is the second one I've read now and I was not disappointed. The art work was brilliant and the storyline great. My only problem was my own eyesight and the medium on which I read the novel making it hard to do. I strained to read the words due to a lack of a [...]
Amazing how much Butcher crammed into just one small issue! Sets up where the story is picking up (slightly disjointing for someone who's up to date with the books to kind of forget the last couple) so pretty much anyone could dive in. The story rounds with some Dresden and co. joking around and driving into battle, get a full battle scene and some simmering down at the end to set up the next issue. I often don't buy these small issues because it goes so fast it hardly seems worth the money, not [...]
There are a number of things I loved about this graphic novel. The first being that it stands alone rather well. It does help to have a relationship with the character Harry Dresden but it's not necessary. The action was well done - it was easy enough to follow but complicated enough that the reader is forced to linger. The art was clear and concise. The majority of the plot happened at night. The reader still got a sense of the dark without losing the clarity of the action. All together, this w [...]
Another new story done in graphic format set in the Dresden Files universe. This is set a few months after Harry has been appointed a Warden after an attack that leaves the Warden's ranks dangerously thin. This covers the span of one night as Dresden and three new Wardens are sent to protect a house full of scholars from the vampires. Good solid short story and doesn't spoil much of the over all story arc if this is a new point for a reader to jump into the series. Digital review copy provided b [...]
Harry Dresden finds himself leading a group of newly minted Wardens to protect a group of mortals in an isolated house. They find themselves up against overwhelming Red Court vampires. What does the Red Court want so badly? Harry discovers that someone on the White Council may be endangering the world with the answer. Well done graphic novel set after the novel Dead Beat. Can Harry survive this night?
I bought this on iBooks, but I don't have the patience for single comic books. It was mostly an introduction to the situation and characters, and letting us know that, as always, the White Council (or pretty much any authoritative figure in these books) doesn't give their soldiers the complete file before sending them into action. Super excited for the rest of the series, but I should have waited for the graphic novel/collection release. I picked up Ghoul Goblin too, so that'll be next :)
Far too short little introduction to a new Graphic Novel Tale from the Dresden Files. I got this one in ebook format and am surprised how easy it is to get used to reading it that way. Kindle offers a little extra where you can enlarge each scene and enjoy it in its entirety and spare your poor eyes a little. I wish there'd been more but it was worth the price and there's yet another series that makes the waiting worthwhile. More. Now.
For a graphic novel, this book isn't really my favorite. Good, but not my cup of tea. I still enjoyed it, but i think the whole zombie fiesta is not working. quite challenging, though. Looking forward to read the sequel.
Great side case!We finally get a story where Dresden works with the wardens under his command. Apparently Ramirez wasn't regional commander right away. Pushing and Wild Bill are also in this.
Excellent! Ramirez!! And a sip of Harry at his sarcastic, smart-ass best. With a touch of Lovecraft.
Love Dresden Files. Guess I don't love graphic novels.
La historia algo simple, el dibujo repetitivo (parece que han reciclado escenas de acción y las han ido repitiendo). En comparación a las novelas, algo flojo.
Received from netgalley for review.Really enjoyed this graphic novel. I am a big fan of comics and Dresden and this was a brilliant addition to the the series.Cannot wait to read number 2
Really good. Loved the art style and the dialogue. I only wish it was longer, and that I had more of them.
Beautiful graphic novel version of one of Butcher's short stories
excellent addition to the Dresden Files
This was a fun read and a good story. It was also a treat after nearly a year without any new Dresden Files books to read.
Book Source: Publisher via netgalleyEngaging story, well drawn, and nicely inked.
