Format: Paperback
“The Graveyard Book: Volume 2” is the second volume in a two-part graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2008 children’s novel “The Graveyard Book.” Artist P. Craig Russell, who is a long-time collaborator with Gaiman and took care of the graphic adaptation, figures prominently on the cover, but be warned that each chapter is drawn by a different artist: David Lafuente (chapter 6), Scott Hampton (chapter 7), and P. Craig Russel, Kevin Nowlan and Galen Showman (chapter 8).

In the 175 pages of the second volume, which covers Chapter Six through Eight of the original novel, we continue the story of Bod (short for Nobody, or Nobody Owens to give him his full adopted name) as he goes through his teenage-years. When Bod’s guardian Silas has revealed to him what happened to his family, Bod surprises him by wanting to go to school, as he wants to learn things so he’ll be able to survive outside the Graveyard where he grew up. At school, he uses the skills learned from his family and friends to stay under the radar - that is, until he decides to step in when bullies start to pick on another child. This does lead to him getting noticed – which leads to all kinds of trials and tribulations (familiar to those who’ve read the prose novel and which I won’t spoil for those who haven’t), including the final showdown with a man named Jack, the murderer of his family.

Story-wise, it stays very faithful to the original prose novel, with words and art meshing very well together. It really shows that Gaiman is equally adept at working in prose as well as the very different comic book-format. Overall, the art gives a very cohesive interpretation, and when you move onto a new chapter and a new artist, the style never changes so much it will jar you out of the story.

Neil Gaiman is for my money one of the most inventive writers of fantasy that we have. He has ways of making the extraordinary seem common place and the ordinary seem magical. Nobody Owens is growing up a bittersweet process for our young protagonist.

Having read the novel ages ago, this was a really good comic conversion with none of the story left out. Great way to get my children to read the story too.

Scary enough for kids. But not too scary. You obviously need to get both graphic novels. Enjoyed immensely!

This is a true fantasy book, with good characters, a story worth reading. Neil, as usual, spins a good yarn!
