A stunning graphic novel (Daily Express)
Strong visual images and dialogue that sticks closely to the original book make for a good read for those new to CHERUB or who have previously enjoyed Muchamore's books. (Children's Books Ireland Recommended Reads)

Look out for Muchamore's first CHERUB tale which is now a stunning graphic novel. (Daily Express)
This graphic novel adaptation of Muchamore's popular teen-spy series captures all of the excitement and authenticity of the original. The illustrations are well balanced with the dialogue/narration and do a fine job of pushing the quickly paved story forward. This is a great choice to bring reluctant or less-advanced readers into the thrilling series, and would also appeal to fans of Anthony Horowitz and Ally Carter. (Booklist)
Aggs's art is strong, and the use of bold color and sharp lines help drive much of the action and fighting James goes through before he gets initiated. All handled with a surprisingly levelheaded and grounded perspective. (School Library Journal)
The bestselling CHERUB series takes its huge appeal into graphic novel format. James hits rock bottom before he's offered a new start in an intriguing organisation ...See all Product description

I think this graphic novel is more a complement to the normal book than a replacement.
But my son did point out that the illustrations were not very good - and I have to agree with him. We have a large number of graphic novels, and I feel this is the most poorly illustrated of the lot. The illustrations lack consistency and appeared rushed. Some are OK but others are truly horrid and I'm afraid the quality of artwork may result in this series never getting off the ground - which would be a great shame.
For those unfamiliar with CHERUB books, the series follows the exploits of a child spy. In this it has a lot in common in with Alex Rider or The Young James Bond, but rather than being just a single agent - CHERUB follows a group of friends in a school for spies - so has been compared to Harry Potter as well - but for children who wouldn't dream of reading a book about wizardry. This book will appeal most to the hardest to reach group of readers - boys who do not like fantasy and fairy tale type books. This story is missing something from the original, but it is still an excellent book and one of very few books to suit boys who want a more action packed read. I would highly recommend this book for reluctant readers, especially preteen boys. The graphic novel format makes this series accessible to a younger group of readers and I certainly hope we will be seeing more in this series.
