A case of talents multiplying rather than simply adding to each other, [Cemetery Girl] is a suitably spooky start for the series. Recommended (scifibulletin.com)

All round a first outing in a brand new series and one that I thought was a good bit of fun as it was not only dark but brought something new to the fore. Great fun.
What grabs you first are the very clear and stunning illustrations from Don Kramer, too often these days the artwork in new Graphic Novels can be too stylistic, but these are colourful, clear, interesting, full of mood and emotion, managing to invoke the story where the words of the authors Charline Harris and Christopher Golden are limited, as words are on these Graphic novels.
The Plot grabbed and intrigued from the first few pages, the story delighted and by the end i was left fulfilled and wanting more. Clearly the mark of a good series in the making.
I shall be getting book two
I don't often read comics or graphic novels but this has such a great pedigree - and JF Books produce a great product - that I decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did. It's well written, immediate and smart, violent and poignant and although there are some small areas of repetition, it has a quick pace. The characters, especially Calexa, Marla and Lucinda Cameron, an old woman who spots her stealing and takes an interest in her (whilst bestowing her with the name `cemetery girl') are clear and defined and the cemetery makes a great location. The artwork, by Don Kramer who has worked with both Marvel and DC, is very detailed and captures the mood of the cemetery well (I like my art clear and defined so I thought his work complimented the words perfectly, though a graphic novel aficionado might disagree with me).
Firing on all cylinders, well presented and a beautiful object in itself (I read the hardback edition with glossy pages), I enjoyed the story and the artwork and would very much recommend it.
Both Charlaine Harris and Christopher Golden have many titles already under their belts: Harris' name will be familiar as the author of the Sookie Stackhouse books, the basis of TV show True Blood, and Golden has written dozens of novels and graphic narratives. They seem to work well together as the plot trips along nicely with an interesting cast of characters.
Don Kramer's artwork is visually appealing, and sets up the story world vividly. Cemetery Girl would appeal more to young adults, and reluctant readers in particular, though its lack of original elements means it's unlikely to satisfy older fantasy/horror fans.
