This graphic novel, adapted by Grant Alter and Derek Ruiz, is a very fine rendering of the first half of the "Fear Nothing" novel. If you have read the novel, you will feel comfortable and knowing in this retelling of the story. If you have not read the novel, it should elicit genuine interest in reading it. This reader finds the two Christopher Snow novels to be a near perfect blending of Koontz' talents and recurring themes. Great characters, hyper intelligent animals, a loyal enigmatic dog (Orson), great characters you quickly come to care about, and a deepening mystery that slowly strangles you with suspense.
Christopher Snow is a 28 year old living in fictional Moonlight Bay, California who suffers from Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), a genetic affliction which forces him to live in the shadows by day and outside only at night as he must avoid light and sunlight or risk terminal skin cancer. His support group consists of his dog, Orson, his surf buddy, Bobby Halloway, and his deejay girlfiend, Sasha Goodall.Read more ›
The pencilist seems to have trouble drawing faces as half the time the hero's face looks deformed, lumpy fat or out of proportion. This is rather disappointing since facial expression and drawing decent faces should be within every comic artist's basic skill set. The panels themselves lack detail and animals are clearly not Mr. Gill's strong suit as the dog is particularly looks strange and goofy.
After viewing the art, I decided the book quite simply wasn't worth my time. I loved the book by Koontz, but forcing myself to read his prose paired with sub-standard art which makes every character`s head look like a boiled egg is just not worth my time. A few more semesters of basic figure drawing and portraiture class would improve this artist immensely.
The art is not impressive in the least. I actually found it borderline offensive to my sense of sight. I read a few pages and just had to put it down. As someone who has read the first two books a NUMBER of times this rendition is so lacking that it made me want to apologize to the novels.
If you want to read this story you can buy the actual books for less than this horrid adaptation and your imagination will give you a MUCH better visual. Just prepare yourself for disappointment as the third book was , according to Dean Koontz, "Half way done" in 2003 so 12 years later still nothing. Yet he had the time to redo a bunch of other stories and put out graphic novel versions. I understand the creative process but 12 years is ridiculous, especially when there were many references to this story in the last few Odd Thomas books.
