Book Description

9 Nov 2010
Fear Nothing tells the story of 28-year-old oddball hero Christopher Snow, who lives in the city of Moonlight Bay, California, along with his hyper-intelligent dog Orson, his best surfing buddy Bobby and his late-night deejay girlfriend Sasha. Snow has XP-xeroderma pigmentosum-a very rare genetic affliction that forces him to avoid light at all costs, and will likely give him cancer later in life. His parents died under mysterious circumstances and he's now being stalked by the shadowy characters who want Snow to stop trying to find out how they died--or else they'll bump off his remaining loved ones. Fear Nothing features all the pulse pounding thriller action and great character development Koontz fans have come to expect from his work, as well as a bit of comedy, and yes, even an army of evil mutant rhesus monkeys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Adaptation Of Koontz' Novel 4 Dec 2010
By TMStyles - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In 1998, Dean Koontz captured the avid interest of myriad readers with his seminal novel "Fear Nothing" which introduced Christopher Snow and followed it a year later with a sequel, "Seize The Night." Both were wonderfully written, suspenseful and mysterious, having created characters, a seaside locale, and a mystery so intense that readers waited for the third novel with bated breath. Unfortunately, Koontz sidestepped his interest into the Odd Thomas novels and the third book was never written, although the forward written by Koontz in this graphic adaptation of "Fear Nothing" indicates he is finally hard at work on it.

This graphic novel, adapted by Grant Alter and Derek Ruiz, is a very fine rendering of the first half of the "Fear Nothing" novel. If you have read the novel, you will feel comfortable and knowing in this retelling of the story. If you have not read the novel, it should elicit genuine interest in reading it. This reader finds the two Christopher Snow novels to be a near perfect blending of Koontz' talents and recurring themes. Great characters, hyper intelligent animals, a loyal enigmatic dog (Orson), great characters you quickly come to care about, and a deepening mystery that slowly strangles you with suspense.

Christopher Snow is a 28 year old living in fictional Moonlight Bay, California who suffers from Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), a genetic affliction which forces him to live in the shadows by day and outside only at night as he must avoid light and sunlight or risk terminal skin cancer. His support group consists of his dog, Orson, his surf buddy, Bobby Halloway, and his deejay girlfiend, Sasha Goodall. When his father dies two years after his mother with mystery surrounding their passing and aftermath, Christopher suddenly finds himself hunted by unknown forces for unknown reasons--besides his persistent investigation into the aftermath of his father's death. Who is after him? What were his parents into that might have contributed to their deaths? What is behind the strange Rhesus monkeys that appear? Why are old friends who know something about his past suddenly dying? Who can Christopher trust among the people he has known all his life?

"Fear Nothing" is a great mix of endearing characters, scarey conspiracies, a mystery that can be traced back to a closed military installation, and, of course, as in most Koontz novels, intelligent animals--some lovingly loyal and some seemingly straight out of a nightmare. This graphic adaptation will serve to rekindle the excitement of all those who previously read the Christopher Snow novels and should prompt a run on back editions for those who are new to Christopher Snow. My only quibble with the adaptation is the quality of the artwork--acceptable, to be sure, but not equal to the writing or the story. For me, my desire to read the forthcoming third novel, and subsequent graphic adaptations of the first two, has been ratcheted up many notches by this fine effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revisit Moonlight Bay 16 Nov 2010
By E. Baxter - Published on Amazon.com

I last read Fear Nothing, the full novel, several years ago and quickly followed it with Seize the Night. Christopher Snow instantly became one of my favorite Koontz creations. With this full color graphic novel I had the chance to see the world Snow lives in. Because of Snow's condition which makes him vulnerable to light he must stay in the shadows, emerging at night to explore the world. This makes for a visually interesting environment, often illuminated by candlelight or streetlights which Snow must still avoid. The darkness sets a good tone for the story as the reader is drawn into the mystery of what is happening along with our hero. Fans of Snow will recognize his voice narrating his thoughts through much of the book here. The story for the graphic novel is well adapted. Readers should be aware that this is only the first volume, I believe of two, of Fear Nothing. The next volume will not be Seize the Night but part II of Fear Nothing. Just be aware that this is only the first part of the story. Hopefully Seize the Night will also be adapted in two parts. Dean Koontz provides a forward about what's going on with Snow and a little about how he came about which are interesting. I had no problem with the artwork here, in fact, the monkeys are downright scary as they should be. If you've already read the books, go ahead and pick this up too. If you haven't read the books, you should. This is a great opportunity to take a ride on the Mystery Train.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yikes. 8 Nov 2010
By Serene - Published on Amazon.com

Fear nothing is one of my favorite Koontz novels. It is about a man with a rare illness who lives in a town which is slowly being taken over by a creeping supernatural evil. I'm a big fan of graphic novels and comic books. When I saw there was a graphic novel edition of this book, I was quite excited. Unfortunately, the moment I opened it, I was quite disappointed. The art is really bad.

The pencilist seems to have trouble drawing faces as half the time the hero's face looks deformed, lumpy fat or out of proportion. This is rather disappointing since facial expression and drawing decent faces should be within every comic artist's basic skill set. The panels themselves lack detail and animals are clearly not Mr. Gill's strong suit as the dog is particularly looks strange and goofy.

After viewing the art, I decided the book quite simply wasn't worth my time. I loved the book by Koontz, but forcing myself to read his prose paired with sub-standard art which makes every character`s head look like a boiled egg is just not worth my time. A few more semesters of basic figure drawing and portraiture class would improve this artist immensely.
