      I was weaned on comic books. I lusted for them far sooner than any other recalled lust. I credit comic books with infusing me with the love of reading. They also must take credit for my writing as well. Comic books were the foundation of my learning. That makes it hard to explain that this is one of the few graphic novels I have ever read. I read the book that inspired this graphic novel. The book was better but this was good. It has nuances that you miss in your own reading. It is interesting t [...]

      This is the first graphic novel adaptation of a traditional novel I've ever read, and based on this, I don't think it's my thing. I suppose I don't understand the point--why not just read the novel? There's nuance and exposition that didn't make it into the graphic novel that may not have been necessary for understanding the basic plot, but adds flavor to the story and makes it deeper and more interesting.I also struggled because none of the characters, particularly Dresden, looked anything like [...]

      Harry, gets his fur up in this exciting tale of him verses the Loup Garou. he is forced to break into jail and try to save people from the change that happens before he can get there. Things get worse, Murphy shows up puts him under arrest and then the fur really starts to fly. Harry gets broken, beaten and lost in his own suffering. Marcone, is up to his normal evil acts. Can Harry live through this ?Great story slightly rough animation, at first it bothered me but as the story went on the illu [...]

      Part 2 of this story basically has the same problems as part 1, so nothing really much more to say about it. This sort of adaptation really only works if the picture on the page at least comes close to the picture you have in your head, and these just don't do it. Harry Dresden just isn't tall enough for one thing (he's supposed to be 6'7"), and he just doesn't look serious enough.

    • Hector Ibarraran says:

      Not great, but I did feel like Harry Dresden had a lot to lose at the end. I'm glad I read it, and I am going to continue to read about the adventures of Mr. Dresden. I'll finally be able to get past the second book and to go on with this awesome guilty pleasure.

      I haven't read the graphic novel. Probably won't.

    • Elspeth says:

      Not for me, this is too far from what I picture Dresden looking for my tastes.Thank you NetGalley for letting me read and review this title.

    • Katie says:

      We finish up Dresden's quest to protect Chicago from a rampant werewolf and those who would use him for their own nefarious purposes.The more of these I read, the more I feel like they should only be used as a refresher. While it's no surprise that a lot is lost in adapting the novels to a comic book, I feel that *too much* is lost. I enjoyed these because I'd already read the books, but I think some plot points aren't completely clear in this format.Conley illustrated the last volume, but he se [...]

      Another good audiobook - fun, not too serious (although there were a few scenes that, if this were a paper book, I would have skimmed rather quickly - since it was an audio book, I was forced to listen to a few cringeworthy pages). The narrator has a particular interpretation of the character (sighing, grunting, etc), which listeners will like or dislike. I got used to it and now have it firmly entrenched in my own mental rendition of the character.

    • Brittany says:

      There was something fun about rereading this story in a different format. Loved it both as a book and a graphic novel. Even if most of the characters look nothing like they do in my head

    • Pam Bales says:

      Again, Dresden is great. I'm glad I found graphic novels are available on my tablet.

    • Nidah (SleepDreamWrite) says:

      Good volume.

    • KyleWoods says:

      Better than the first one, but still not amazing. The story and climax felt kind of forced, but I enjoyed the ride.

    • Milo (BOK) says:

      Eventually, I finally get round to reviewing this title over at The Founding Fields: thefoundingfields/2013/03/. If you want to have access to the link to my Fool Moon review, it's on that post.“An interesting graphic novel that brings the world of Dresden to life, but ultimately suffers from the fact that it is not Butcher who is doing the adaption.” ~The Founding FieldsOriginal Writer: Jim Butcher | Adaptor: Mark Powers | Art: Chase Conley | Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment | Collects: Ji [...]

    • Karissa says:

      This is the second volume in the Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files Fool Moon graphic novel story arc. It did a good job of wrapping up the story and was well written, but the artwork again left a lot to be desired.This graphic novel picks up where the first volume left off and covers issues 5-8 of the Fool Moon story. Harry is trying to track down the werewolf that is murdering people with the help of the sexy Tera West and a group of teenage werewolves. Murphy continues to not trust him and is maki [...]

      The Dresden Files: Fool Moon, Volume 2 is a graphic novel from Jim Butcher, Mark Powers and Chase Conley. It is scheduled for release on April 23 2013. This installment is the second volume based on the regular novel version of Fool Moon in the Dresden File series. Harry Dresden is a wizard for hire. Chicago has had some savage werewolf attacks - a case made even more challenging by the fact that Harry has found three lycanthropic groups which are fighting among themselves. On top of that, Harry [...]

      I received an electronic advance release copy of this graphic novel through NetGalley.I read the full novel of this book in mid-2011, so it's been awhile. Butcher writes very intricate subplots that weave together into the main action. Even with a synopsis at the start of this illustrated version, it was very hard to jump in half-way. There are so many character to keep straight, and of course, they weren't portrayed the way I imagined them. That said, I think they did a good job of condensing t [...]

      I have been a fan of this series for a long time and when I heard they were adapting them to graphic novels I was very excited. I enjoyed Storm Front well enough, though I considered the art at the time a bit blocky and boring. The Fool Moon adaptions however blew me out of the water with the art and the story telling. One of my favorite book scenes, the hanging pit of flirting as I call it, was beautifully rendered and even funnier then the scene it is based on. The art is much, much better thi [...]

    • David says:

      Harry Dresden is a wizard. And in this book there are werewolves. Like three different sets of werewolves. And there's lots of conflict between them. I read this without having read volume 1 but I have previously experienced other Harry Dresden works so I was fairly familiar with the characters. It was ok. It was decent. But I don't know that this book really engaged me or if I would excitedly recommend it to people. Which is why I'm rating it a 3/5. But there's always that group of people (guys [...]

    • Julie says:

      This is the second part of the graphic novel, Fool Moon. Although it's a different medium for the story, it loses nothing in its telling. In fact, it's enhanced by the brilliant artwork. As usual Harry is up to his neck in trouble and has to save not only his arse but quite a few others, including Gentleman Johnny Marcone. That must really stick in the throat. I would recommend any of the Dresden Files in either book or graphic novel medium to anyone interested in reading an urban fantasy.I rece [...]

    • Honza Prchal says:

      For some reason, volume two struck me as superior to volume 1.The basic story is solid, but of course so was the book. The book is superior to the comic, which is no surprise, and both had problems with pacing and transition unusual for Jim Butcher, but several of the individual scenes are very well done in both the book and the comic.If you are reading just to be clued in on the full cannon, just read the book, but if you really enjoy this sort of thing and it has been awhile, you should like t [...]

    • Dennis says:

      Now I have been thoroughly enjoying the dresden files comics, but this was seemed a little off. I was not a fan of the art style in this one (it was go work don't get me work, didn't seem to fit dresden though). It reminded me to much of a Saturday morning cartoon. The exaggerated features just made things look silly. Also if I never read the books I would have no idea where the story was going. It was too fast and scattered. With all that said I am still looking forward for more Dresden files i [...]

    • Nickie says:

      Well it would have helped if the first half of the book had been available from the library. I remember this being confusing when I read the full novel, it was still not clear reading the story a second time as a graphic novel. There are just too many different versions of werewolves all introduced at the same time.

    • Gautam Surath says:

      Well the pace definitely picked up and the loop Garou certainly lived up to expectations. And just how beaten up Dresden can get is really brought to life. I hope they churn these out fast enough to catch up with the books at some point though I am still considering starting the series all over again

    • Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) says:

      Part 2 is just as well done as the first part. The epic scene where the loup garou wreaks havoc in the police station comes to vivid life in the bright colors and dynamic artwork of this graphic novel. The end seems abbreviated, but the last scene with Dresden and Tera has the same power. I think I'll have to get the audiobook to read this one again.

    • Jennavier says:

      Once again Fool Moon actually works better as a graphic novel then it did as a regular novel. That continued right up to the end with a lot of the confusing plot points taking a back seat to the action. My biggest problem with this installment is that they changed artists and I really didn't like him. Also I had no memory of Tera being naked that much. Probably because I'm not a guy.

    • Gemma says:

      The animation wasn't to my particular taste, and the characters were too far removed from the images I had in my head for me to really enjoy this one. And whilst the words of Jim Butcher were largely there, I didn't really feel his "voice", and wasn't able to lose myself in this as I would with the full novel. Will still definitely keep reading the graphic novels though, and happily so :)

    • Carrie McKee says:

      Good could be betterAs with any Butcher story, Fool Moon is full of dark humor and plenty of action. A superb story. The illustrations, however, leave something to be desired. Too many sharp angles, too many shadows and too much imbalance for my taste. However, seeing as I'm still a huge Dresden fan, and since they stayed true too the story, I give it a 4 out of 5

    • Ron says:

      Enjoyed revisiting early Dresden cases. Still getting used to the image of Dresden, Susan and Murphy which do not match my mental picture. That is always the danger of graphic adaptations. Enjoyable read nevertheless!(Feb 2017) Finally got hold of Volume 1, so I had to read Volume 2 as well.

    • Mstv says:

      So far, all of the Dresden file books have kept my attention thoroughly and delightfully! This one is no exception.Harry is all too human and wants to keep it that way, in spite of his ability to ask for more power. This time, however, things may change Great read/listen!
