This was my initial exposure to the characters and it was superbly done in all regards. The story moves along expertly and fast. It has enough tension and action to keep it from becoming too lighthearted but it is lighthearted enough for its humor to shine through. A solid work all around, particularly for readers accustomed to the medium. It is obvious that many of the whiners that took the time to show that they are incapable of reading the details of a purchase in Amazon before doing so, thus publicly demonstrating further evidence of humankind's incapacity to take responsibility for their own carelessness while blaming the authors of this superb work for their emotional and pseudo-intellectual pettiness, are unworthy of being invited to further fortays into the Barnaby and Hooker universe created by Evanovich or to even truly enjoy it. If more comics come through from that universe, I am buying them. As for the related prose work, I'm heading there right now. Whiners, please enjoy a healthy dose of middlefingerin' and do grow up and out from your laughable and unwarranted mean spiritedness. Next time, find out what graphic novel means and don't be so risibly small minded and careless.
