It Takes a Graveyard to Raise a Child.

Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, and didn't have a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead.

There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy, and if Bod leaves, he will be in danger from the man Jack--who has already killed Bod's family. Despite the danger, Bod wants to leave the graveyard to attend school with the living and find out more about his family's murder. But when Bod uses the Fear on two bullies and gets too close to the man Jack, he will put more things at risk than he knows.

Each chapter in this adaptation by P. Craig Russell is illustrated by a different luminary from the comic book world, showcasing a variety of styles from a breadth of talent. Together, they bring Neil Gaiman's award-winning, nationally bestselling novel The Graveyard Book to new life in this gorgeously illustrated two-volume graphic novel adaptation.

This volume includes Chapter Six through the end of the book.

An excellent graphic novel - and I think - even more enjoyable as a graphic novel than it was as a prose book.Especially the ending. The ending worked much better with visuals to give it more drama.
So very original and one of Gaiman's best stories in years Lately I have been disappointed in his books but this one was clever and interesting.

Bod is older now and wants to go out beyond the graveyard. His first and only stint in school is definitely a memorable one. As Bod grows up in this volume he buts heads with Silas and with others as he makes his own way in the world that he has. The final confrontation with the Man Jack, and a reunion with a long lost friend, are high points of this volume, and the concluding chapters is just as heartwrenching and hopeful as it is in the original book. If you loved the book, checking out this graphic adaptation is certainly worth it.

The Graveyard Book, Graphic Novel, Volume II by Neil Gaiman ~ A brand spanking new book from the liberry, it seemed to not live up to its first book, unless Gaiman comes up with a third volume casting on Nobody Owens' life after he leaves the graveyard.
