About the Author

#1 "New York Times" bestselling author Patricia Briggs lives in Washington State with her husband, children, and a small herd of horses. Writer David Lawrence has worked in comics since the 1980s, when he created the fondly remembered indie classic "Ex-Mutants "and several spin-offs. In recent years he served as managing editor at Dabel Brothers Publishing. Lawrence has worked with a number of bestselling novelists, including Jim Butcher, Karen Marie Moning, and George R. R. Martin. Todd Herman is a cartoonist / storyboard artist / designer based in Portland, Oregon, whose graphic novel credits include "The Fog "and "Cut" for Dark Horse Comics, "Galveston "and "Fall of Cthulhu: Nemesis" for BOOM! Studios, and "The Warriors: Jailbreak" for Dynamite Entertainment. He did a three-year stint storyboarding the Eddie Murphy stop-motion animated television series "The PJs." Raised in Peoria, Illinois, and currently a resident of Chicago, Jenny Frison has been working as an illustrator in the comic book industry since 2008. A two-time Harvey Award nominee for best cover artist, Frison has created covers for DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, Top Cow, IDW, and Dynamite. She loves comics, puppies, horror movies, and toast...but not necessarily in that order.

Even more beautiful than the first volume 7 May 2013
By AJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When the world is as lush and mystical as Patricia Briggs has created for the Alpha and Omega series, it just begs to be adapted to a visual form. This graphic novelization (which includes issues 5-8 of the comics) is once again brought to vivid life by David Lawrence, Todd Herman, and Jenny Frison. It's an excellent team, as this volume, is even more beautiful than the first.

While I'm partial to Dan Dos Santos as the artist who creates the novel covers for Patricia Briggs series, as well as the covers for these graphic novel collections, Jenny Frison's issue covers (all included in this volume) are pretty spectacular. She captures action in a way that makes the wolves feel like they are about to leap off the page.

I still view these graphic novels as a compliment to the full novels, but this volume does a pretty impressive job of condensing the plot both through Patty's original dialog, and Todd Herman's deft illustrations. I especially liked how tortured Asil was drawn (great to get to see so much of the character since he crosses over so prominently in FROST BURNED, the most recent Mercy Thompson novel). This volume is a no brainer for fans of Patricia Briggs, but more than that, it's a real treat for graphic novel fans too

page turning story 7 May 2013
By Sharon Stogner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I reviewed the Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf: Volume One graphic novel a while back. I wasn't happy with the artwork and thought the story deserved something less cartoonish considering the dark edge to the story. I did find the story captivating and the cliff hanger ending had me wanting this next volume, which contains issues #5-#8 and is the conclusion to the story. The artwork is by the same artist and it isn't as disappointing as the first volume, but still not to my taste. Since I addressed those issues in the previous review I am not going to discuss it again and not factor it into my review of this volume.

This issue tells Asil's story in flashbacks and we learn why he is unstable and suicidal. The witch Mariposa has come to get revenge on Charles's father Bran, and ends up finding Asil and causing him to relive his painful past. I haven't read the book this graphic novel is based on so the story is new to me, and it is a quick page turner. Charles and Anna get caught in the crossfire and Anna embraces her omega powers to help save the day with Charles and Anna completeing the mating bond.

There is an excerpt at the end from Briggs's most recent Mercy Thompson release Frost Burned (reviewed here). The Cry Wolf graphic novels give a peek into the world Briggs has created in her novels and will definitely appeal to urban fantasy fans. The cover art of each individual issue is included and is absolutely beautiful.

Not what I expected 13 May 2013
By Edward Estepa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought it was an addition to the first book. But I was wrong. It's additional chapters to a pervious comic like book. Had I been able to look inside I would not have spend the money

A Visual Treat! 12 Sept. 2014
By Sophia Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Note: This review encompasses both v. 1 and v. 2 and is copied to both.

I'm not a regular graphic novel reader, but for a favorite author, it becomes a must read. I found this graphic version of Cry Wolf just a delight to my visual senses. The storyline wasn't bad either though I will warn other readers that there is some flashback stuff that can make things confusing if you're not paying close attention. I won't say you have to read the novel first, but I think without having already read Cry Wolf the novel then I would have been lost in places particularly during the flashbacks. Others who are regular graphic book readers probably would fare better.

The graphic work is done by three different artists. The cover art, issue covers, and the story pages are all separate artists. The work is exquisite and I loved how facial expression, body language and movement were vividly portrayed so that words were almost unnecessary in places.

Briefly, the storyline begins just after Charles Cornick, mystic werewolf and son of the Alpha of all alphas and an alpha wolf in his own right, brings his new mate, Anna Latham back to his home town in the Montana wilderness so that she can continue to recover from the abuse she was dealt in her old pack and they can adjust to their new mating. Anna is a rare omega wolf and doesn't even no how special she is because of the way her old pack kept her ignorant and abused. Charles knows that things will take time since it was his wolf and her wolf that began the mate bond and not their human sides. Anna doesn't know the full extent of who and what he is as his dad's enforcer and he worries that it will drive her away after all the violence she was subject to before.

Anna is made of sterner stuff than anyone realizes so when Bran Cornick sends Charles out to investigate the suspicion of a rogue werewolf attacking humans in the mountains, she insists on going with him. Their trek takes them into danger and really tests them conjuring up their pasts as well as the past of another pack member, Asil. The future of the entire werewolf race may be at stake when they realize the full extent of their enemy's plotting. It's Anna's gifts that may save them all.

I read volumes one and two together and they contained the full set of issues to this story so I've also combined them together in the review here. The volumes are split pretty much at the half-way point of the original novel story where Charles and Anna encounter a werewolf and Asil realizes that he needs to get to Charles and Anna because he knows what they are dealing with. The first volume is largely establishing the backstory and characters with most of the action taking place in the second volume. There is a lot of backstory in both because there is Anna, Charles, Bran and Asil's histories to cover which play a part on the present so as I said before, the reader must pay attention.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience to see the story after having already read the novel. It was a visual treat that I encourage all Patricia Briggs fans to try on for themselves and I would also recommend this to Urban Fantasy graphic novel lovers in general.

Adventure in Montana 15 July 2013
By Ruby E. Willard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Anna leaves Chicago for the wilds of Montana and continues to learn about Charles and his family. Patricia Briggs is firing on all cylinders with this one! Every page demanded that I turn another! All I could think of after finishing this book was: I WANT MORE!
