The Graveyard Book Graphic Novel, Part 1

There's some vague flirting with a ghost, no swearing, and no use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco. The first scene -- depicting the killing of Nobody's family -- is the most violent. Stay up to date on new reviews. Still, it is a thrilling and unique tale that lends itself to the visual format, in this case deftly handled by P.

Craig Russell and a cadre of fantastic illustrators. As his family was being murdered by a mysterious man named Jack, little Bod escaped to the graveyard up the hill where he found protection from the ghosts who lived there. Given his odd name by his adoptive parents and looked after by Silas, a creature able to move between the world of the living and the world of the dead, Bod was safe within the graveyard gates and received a education of sorts.

But the borders of the graveyard were permeable enough to allow strange and intriguing encounters, including with a little girl named Scarlett, an ancient guardian spirit called the Sleer and ghouls who take Bod to their own dangerous realm. The first time Bod leaves the graveyard it is to download a headstone for a witch name Liza who is buried there, in unconsecrated ground, without one.

Barefoot and poorly dressed, Bod steps out into the world of the living with an ancient snakestone brooch he took from the grave protected by the Sleer.

Taking the brooch into the shop of a greedy antique dealer brings Bod face to face with real danger and even though he escapes, with some help from Liza, the murderer Jack is once again reminded of the boy who got away. But before Jack can hunt Bod down, a lovely day of winter blossoms and music happens, bringing the magic of the dead to the world of the living; the Dance Macabre.

An energetic and welcome version of the original novel that showcases the talents of Russell and the other artists who worked on it as well as the storytelling powers of Gaiman But this first volume ends not with Bod's joyful dance in the beautiful falling snow, but with a glimpse of Jack, who is reminded that this living boy must die. In the capable hands of Russell, it comes alive with concise language that conveys the story without an over-reliance on narrative. The traditional comic paned illustrations are by seven different artists; distinct but sharing a palette and similar enough styles to make the book cohesive.

The episodic plot is perfect for this kind of collaborative project, with each chapter offering a different look that stills feels part of a unified vision. Rowdy ghouls, ghosts from various eras, a kindly vampire, and a vigilant werewolf are only a few of the supernatural characters depicted with elegance and wit.
