Lafuente, Stephen Scott, Scott Hampton and Tony Harris, has adapted the book into a two-volume graphic novel.
Craig Russell have put together a beautiful graphic novel re-telling, with help from a number of other artistic talents. He wanders off into the night and ends up at the graveyard upon the hill, where the spirits of the place take him in.
The energy of the novel its essence, or, if you will, its very soul is completely intact. Each chapter flashes forward two years, and when the boy turns five in the second chapter, Russell takes the artistic reins himself. He parallels the first chapter, but brings a bigger flow to the designs and the landscape.
Bod befriends a young girl, Scarlett, who plays in the graveyard while her parents read, and the scenes of the two children playing contrast the opening panels starkly, but beautifully. Tony Harris and Scott Hampton tackle the art in this chapter together, give the reader an idea of the dichotomy between the world of the graveyard that Bod knows the grotesque world of the creatures known as ghouls. The fourth chapter, originally published in Wizards: Magical Tales from the Masters of Modern Fantasy in , is drawn by Galen Showman in a much more adult tone.
The tale of a witch who lives in the unconsecrated part of the graveyard, it depicts the first time the Bod leaves his home and ventures into the town below. Scott shows the reader a glimpse of the underground workings of the shadowy society to which the man Jack belongs. Adaptations of books into graphic novels juggle a number of requirements to be successful with readers.
On one hand, they need to satisfy fans of the original work, while also providing a new and interesting take on the source material. On the other hand, they have to be engaging enough to command the attention of readers unfamiliar with the novel, while also not deviating too far from the work it is based upon. This adaptation takes a lot of risks that end up paying off immensely, both for the reader and the story itself.
Russell does a terrific job maintaining the roots of each chapter while allowing the artists to flourish and branch out in beautiful ways. Gaiman is a master of the written word he is able to craft intricate settings and develop incredibly deep characters with seemingly effortless storytelling.
Yet that collection of stories was so spot-on that an adaptation like this, one that would most certainly fail for other works, soars alongside the original. Russell is no stranger to this quality either, having helmed adaptations of Gaiman's previous works Coraline and illustrated Sandman: The Dream Hunters. There is nothing like it out there. Unique and fresh and gothic.
Now, it has been adapted into a graphic novel. What I like about this, is I can read it in much shorter time and enjoy it.
