Being quite addicted to the Bryant and May series, I was pleasantly suprised to find that a Bryant and May graphic novel had recently been published. Now, I grew up on the continent, where there is a brilliant variety in graphic novels, from the more comic book style to what are essentially novels with pictures (i.e. true graphic novels), being beautiful works of art. I have experienced over here in the UK that graphic novels are still often associated by the general public with the more comic book style graphic novel variety (especially superheroes and the like) and only read by geeky males wearing t-shirts stating "I failed the Turing Test". OK, I am such a male, that is true, but I am not at all into the Marvel comic stuff. I love those graphic novels that are true works of art, and that you keep taking off your bookshelf to flick through again and again. The Bryant and May graphic novel is such a book. It contains a few (short) enjoyable Bryant and May stories with some beautiful illustrations that really make the characters come alive. Bryant is depicted a bit grubbier/uglier than I had imagined him, but otherwise spot on. Apart from the stories, the book also contains an overview of all the PCU characters with some bibliographies (unfortunately there is a mistake in the Longbright description), an overview of the series thusfar (I like the Water Room drawing - would have it printed and framed on the wall), and an introduction to the series and where the author Christopher Fowler got his ideas from . It thus is a very nice compendium to the novels, and a must for everybody who has enjoyed the series of books thusfar. On that note, so are the audiobooks. Tim Goodman narrates the series, and has given the characters a "voice".
