1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Ancient Mariner on 12 April 2015
Format: Hardcover
First things first - This 162 page hardcover collects all six issues of the original Harry Dresden story "Ghoul Goblin". It also includes an original series summary, sketches and script to pencil story board sketches. There are individual comics that run about 30 pages that are available from third party sellers, but this is the only collection. There are some reviews on this site that refer to the first comic book, and I suspect that when that comic became unavailable and this hardcover was announced those old reviews were incorrectly transferred to the site. That happens more often than one would like.

So, that said, how do we feel about this collection of the entire six comic book story? Well, I like Butcher's Harry Dresden, and I particularly like the way the Dresden stories are presented in Butcher's published fiction. Butcher writes a good action sequence, but I especially admire the fashion in which Dresden communicates with and converses with other entities, especially powerful magical and spiritual entities whom he must placate and from whom he seeks assitance. Dresden is very formal and elegant in those scenes and the writing is well above the average. Dresden is not just a slam/bam actioner.

The comics that make up this collection, which becomes, basically, a graphic novel, offer glimpses and suggestions of that style and substance, with the added virtue of generally expressive and reasonably immersive drawings. The story has a lot of twists and turns and surprises, with revelations sprinkled along the trail instead of all saved up for the end. Several characters besides Dresden are developed well, and the tale is logical and internally consistent.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 11 Jan. 2015
Format: Hardcover
One of the best things about Harry Dresden is that he can go anywhere and still be a funny, irritating trouble-magnet.

Exhibit A: "Jim Butcher's Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin," which takes place between the second and third books of Butcher's urban fantasy series. But it's a solid self-contained Dresden story, which takes him outside Chicago and into a small Missouri town... which brings its own problems, both supernatural and human. Think giant snakes, curses and a feud between two nasties.

A small-town deputy hires Harry to investigate a string of mysterious deaths in the town of Boons Mills. According to Bob, the entire Talbot bloodline is cursed -- and as Harry snoops around, he runs afoul of both a ghoul and a goblin. Apparently the two are fighting over the town as their territory, and the Talbots are paying the price.

But as Harry tries to untangle the whole supernatural mess, he also finds himself in a quieter battle between the mayor (who has her own supernatural secret) and the narrow-minded sheriff (who, naturally, wants to blame the "out of towner" for all the problems). Can Harry thwart the ghoul and goblin, and save the remaining Talbot children?

"Ghoul Goblin" is a pretty standard Dresden Files short story -- explosions, gore, snark and weird supernatural beings that normal people don't even know of (including a shapeshifting naga). It just so happens that this one has lots of pretty pictures. And oh yeah, Harry isn't in Chicago, and he has nobody from the supporting cast except Bob.

But Butcher's mixture of dark, gritty fantasy (more Talbots die than are saved) and snarky humor ("Shedding the trappings of man" -- ie, getting naked... outdoors... on a very cold night) is very much present here.

This is a graphic novel. As such, a lot of the story is told in pictures which I find detracts from the story. I love Mr Butcher's Dresden Files books. I have read them all a number of times. I honestly can't see me reading this again for a long time, if ever.

Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley. This was a well drawn and beautifully written story about Harry Dresden the Wizard P.I. I have read a number of the books in the past but seeing it in full colour was so much better. The artist even managed to keep all the scrapes and bruises accurate throughout, no mean feat in the battle scenes! If you are a fan of Harry Dresden then you need no encouragement to go and buy this graphic novel and if you are a graphic novel fan I advise buying this one so that you can become a Harry Dresden fan.

Fantastic art work and a compelling story that brings Harry's world to life. Just what I needed to bridge the gap between Cold Days and Skin Game.
