Today at the Kirkus blog, I take a look at three graphic novels based on Jim Butcher’s smart, sarcastic and difficult to kill private eye/Wizard, Harry Dresden.
From the post:
The idea of adapting novels into comics has been around for a little while now, and quite frankly, is the source of my column here at the Kirkus blog (most weeks). Not everyone approaches it the same way. Butcher launched his adaptations with a brand new story written specifically for the comics – Welcome to the Jungle (978-0345507464), which takes place immediately before the first Dresden Files novel – Storm Front. More on that in a minute. Welcome to the Jungle sets up the Dresden Files universe. Karrin Murphy is the head of Chicago PD’s Special Investigation unit. Ron Carmichael is her partner. Whenever anything weird comes up, they call in one Harry Dresden, Wizard. On this particular day, a mysterious death at the zoo is weird enough to make that call.
