Format: Hardcover
This is the last graphic novel for the first novel of the Card series, "Ender's Game". The focus is mostly upon Ender revitalizing the Dragon Team with a crew of "undesirables" and then the higher ups pushing Ender to his breaking capacity before he confronts his final test. This particular volume is very much focused on strategies and tactics.

Written by Christopher Yost and artwork by Pasqual Ferry andFrank D'Armata.

CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B plus; STORY/PLOTTING: B to B plus; ARTWORK PRESENTATION: B plus; BEAN FOCUS: B plus; WHEN READ: early August 2012; OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus.

SPOILERS: I thought the ending after the Formics were eradicated was rushed. It should have had a few extra pages minimum.

Librarians have access to all thing written. I don't remember what led me to Ender's Game back in 1992 but I've been astounded by every addition to the tale that began as a short story. Card's descriptions are rich, but I was delighted to see them realized in graphic novel form, pretty much the way they appeared to me. I would hope that anyone finding the graphic novels first would also dive into the books they are derived from, thus enriching their understanding of Ender's world.

Maybe it's because it's actually a little better. Maybe it's because I read this weeks after reading "Ender's Game," whereas I read "Battle School" only days after finishing it. The story still feels rushed like a bad Michael Bay movie, but not as rushed as the first one. Though, again, I knew what was going on only because I'd read the novel. That's what this is really for: you've read the novel, now here's someone's vision of it. It's a little fun to see the story--the Dragon Army battles, the fight with Bonzo, the conversation with Val on the lake--but that's it. Don't expect any real substance from this.

It hits all the big story points, but completely leaves out the Locke and Demosthenes subplot and the entire epilogue. You are also shown that Bean is important, but not ever shown why as you are in the book--but there's a graphic novel adaptation for "Ender's Shadow," so maybe they explore it more there . . . but then again, if these two books are any indication, they won't. As with the first one, too, the art is fine, but its still obviously done lazily on a computer, re-using some drawings and zooming in on them rather than drawing a whole page. The drawings are well done and they're interesting, sure, but c'mon. These aren't very long graphic novels, don't make them look so rushed.

Unlike the movie's name, I had been reluctant to watch this film given that it had been adapted from a book. But to my surprise, I found this a decent film and here are three reasons why you should watch (and perhaps buy) this movie.

* Harrison Ford, probably the most famous of all time, puts in one of his best performance in this movie which is bolstered by a somewhat unknown Asa Butterfield who did a fantastic job in portraying a complex and deep character. The book portrayed him as a tragic character but I liked how Butterfield played his role in the movie.

* This is essentially an underdog story. If you like how the underprivileged, and the weak, rising up, then this movie will certainly resonate with you. The main character rose in strength due to his incredible talent and perhaps some luck when the Director spotted his talent.

* The graphics are decent and amazing, especially that of the last scene. This is a believable story set in the future of the Earth and there is bound to be a sequel given how the movie ended.

I purchased this book as a gift for my 16 year old granddaughter. Not only was she thrilled to receive it, but moved by it's content and importance to her literary awareness...she loves it and the other book I purchased from the Seller...

As for the Seller, 5 STARS is just the beginning❕❕❕❕
The thoroughness of service and dedication for giving their customer a quality product (packaged with the best attention and concern to satisfy) makes this the BEST SELLER I have ever had with Amazon or anywhere...
...they made a significantly important purchase a memorable experience.
RATING 150+++
