Before you buy IN ODD WE TRUST, be aware of the following:
(1) This is not an ODD THOMAS novel, it's a black and white comic book, a graphic novel drawn in the style of Japanese Manga. If you don't enjoy this type of entertainment, then don't buy this product.
(2) This graphic novel is not entirely written by Dean Koontz, but is instead largely done by Queenie Chan, a very talented manga writer and artist. If you're looking for a writing style that is identical to the ODD THOMAS novels, you will be somewhat disappointed. But I think Chan comes very close to capturing the spirit of all the characters. I also thought her portraits of Odd Thomas and especially Stormy Llewellyn were right on the mark. Overall, I think Chan did a very good job here, given the creative constraints she was probably under.
(3) IN ODD WE TRUST is a prequel story, one that takes place before the original ODD THOMAS novel. As a result, I don't think it's the best place to start Odd's story. My advice is to read Dean Koontz's ODD THOMAS novel first, then read IN ODD WE TRUST afterward. I think doing this will probably maximize your enjoyment of the graphic novel.
All in all, I really liked IN ODD WE TRUST. It's a fun story, and I enjoyed being reunited with all the major characters in the first ODD THOMAS novel. The story definitely lacks the depth of Koontz's novels, but I think that's largely due to the constraints of the graphic novel format (the story, after all, is less than 150 pages long, and took me about a half an hour to read). But if you're a Koontz fan who also enjoys the manga format, this is well worth a try.
