    Again this art style is my favorite but being in the world just makes me happy. Also makes me wanna reread which isn’t helpful at all to my every growing TBR but I love that the comics help me peak in every now and then and enjoy a short visit.

    The artwork for Adam really threw me off. Maybe it was reading this digitally on my phone but when he gets a five o'clock shadow, I thought something was eating his face. Maybe it is just that he looks so different from how I imagine him. All of them do, except maybe Bran and Charles. Charles, oddly enough, looks great. I actually really am looking forward to picking up the Alpha and Omega graphic novel. The artwork for Adam really threw me off.

    When we left Mercy in Volume 1 of the graphic novel adaptation of Moon Called, Mercy, Sam, and Adam were heading back to Washington to find Adam's daughter and discover who killed Mac. The story continues to unfold and things get even more complicated as the vampires get pulled in. If you've read Volume 1, Volume 2 is a definite must. Just don't open Volume 2 without reading Volume 1 or reading the novel beforehand, because it won't make a whole lot of senses.

The story continues to unfold and things get even more complicated as the vampires get pulled in. If you've read Volume 1, Volume 2 is a definite must. Just don't open Volume 2 without reading Volume 1 or reading the novel beforehand, because it won't make a whole lot of senses. In fact, one of the things that I was really shocked about this time around, was how confused I was as the mystery unfolded. I never remembered, while reading the novel, being this confused, and I think one of the reasons was because perhaps the plot was a bit too complicated for the graphic novel medium. But I am getting ahead of myself. Again, this is a trade paperback, containing the next four comics of Moon Called. This time around, Tyler Walpole is the artist. I must say, I really love his artwork. I love his interpretation of Mercy, there is a lot of atmosphere to his work, and I love the emotion. Very nicely done, a huge improvement over the ugly Brett Booths cover art that set off the first comic in Volume 1 and a shade better than Amelia Woo's other cover art in Volume 1. Amelia Woo returns to illustrate the panels, and while her work is consistent with the last volume, the same complaints I had there apply. It's hard to tell the werewolves apart and Mercy still looks like a waifish Caucasian girl who would chip a nail on a wrench. Also, maybe I am more picky, but it seemed like every character was posed like a doll: stiff and awkward, with no thought to how real humans look when holding cellphones, carrying people, or opening car doors. Besides being confused about which werewolf was which, I also was confused about the identity of many of the characters. Jesse, Mercy, Stefan (yay!!), Zee, and Darrel are pretty easy to spot, but Sam, Warren, Adam, Gerry, and others looked interchangeable. The characters continue to be great. Love Mercy, glad to see Stefan, who is amazing. Warren (whose sexuality makes it very interesting to be a wereweolf), Darrel, Adam...they were all very interesting. One of the things that seems to have been left on the cutting room floor is the Sam/Mercy, Adam/Mercy angle. I didn't get much chemistry from these guys, and I'm pretty sure that it was a bit more spicy in the novel. Also, having Mercy a skinwalker AND possessing magical powers to reject Vampires feels weird...but ah, well, I've read worse. As for the plot...oh, my God, did it lose me! I don't know if it is because this is an graphic novel and stuff got cut out, if it is because I easily get confused with graphic novels, or just because the plot is all over the place, but I found it nearly impossible to keep up with all the developments. I still don't quite understand who did what and why. I have an idea (it changes like 80 times towards the end--and given how short a graphic novel is, that is bewildering!), but it still seems like the "Bad Guy" went to an awful lot of work just to get something he wanted. Of course, the novel probably had these problems too--maybe the novel had more explanations, I was in a better mood, etc. I just know reading it in graphic format left me confused half the time. Four stars is probably a bit high for this book. I spent a lot of time confused over the plot and the artwork, particularly the interpretation of Mercy, continues to bug me. But I did enjoy myself reading this, the graphic novel contains a good amount of action and forward momentum and does a pretty darn good job of adapting the book in a visual medium. A must read if you've read Volume 1, but I think rereading "Moon Called" may help clear up some of the confusion from the plot wrap-up.

    The artwork wasn’t that great. Characters were extremely misrepresented! If I hadn’t read the books first I would’ve been very confused as to the plot.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I love Mercy Thompson, so even though I didn’t love the first one, I decided to dive right into Volume Two. It continues the story nicely, again pacing things fast enough to keep everyone moving. I think what’s missing story-wise is some of the warmth and humor of the characters, not to mention the way that Briggs really gives you a sense of who everyone is, even if they’re only present for a few pages. The art did begin to settle into a style that worked well for me in these issues though.

    I know it didn't help starting on Volume 2 of this series, instead of Volume 1, but this still wasn't a very enjoyable read. The graphics look very computer generated, and I have read computer generated graphic novels before, but this looks obviously so. For some reason the characters all appear "wooden", it may be their poses and facial expressions, they feel frozen in a stagnant pose.

The graphics look very computer generated, and I have read computer generated graphic novels before, but this looks obviously so. For some reason the characters all appear "wooden", it may be their poses and facial expressions, they feel frozen in a stagnant pose. When you read Marvel or DC Comics they are very good at giving the characters strong movement, dynamic poses where you feel the character is literally moving across the page, even when they are still just a frozen image in a drawing, they appear to be very much alive. There is also the colour palette, more often than not they seem to stick to the same colours - warm hues of bronze, amber and red. It doesn't matter what location they are at, it feels very much the same, with the odd darker toned area. The script isn't great either, the usual advice is "show don't tell," which should be especially true for a graphic novel. But there is a lot of time with the characters talking, they have brief black & white frames when they remember something that happened in the past, but this takes the place of only a couple of frames and they are back to talking again. There is finally some action towards the end of the book, but it wasn't enough for me. Even though I haven't read Volume 1, I feel they could have combined the two into one volume, cutting down on the "conversation scenes". If you want to go over things that have happened before, have a flashback scene, but make it go on longer and feel more immediate, as if the action is unfolding in real time. It is a shame because I feel the story could be really good, with plenty of opportunity for action scenes, and the art covers including are brilliant, and have more action and dynamic poses in them than the actual panels. This could have been so much better!

    Mercy Thompson is such a fantastic character living in an equally fantastic world full of werewolves, vampires, witches, and fae. This volume of the graphic noel depicted the 2nd half of the first Mercy Thompson book Moon Called in which some totally not nice werewolves kidnap the daughter of Adam Haptman, the local Alpha. So yeah if there is one thing you don't want to do...kidnap a werewolf's daughter because that tends to make him and everyone he knows a wee bit angry. The art in this book wa Mercy Thompson is such a fantastic character living in an equally fantastic world full of werewolves, vampires, witches, and fae.

So yeah if there is one thing you don't want to do...kidnap a werewolf's daughter because that tends to make him and everyone he knows a wee bit angry. The art in this book was absolutely gorgeous. Everything is colored in this magnificent jewel tone color pallet that makes everything seem 12 times more dramatic. Plus it has a bit of a sketch-like quality to it that makes it seem as if the characters are constantly in motion. This is especially rocking during the fight and action scenes. My only complaint is that it was too much too fast. I think that the book should actually have been divided into 3 volumes...although that would mean that volume 2 would have had to end in a really awkward position right before the climax and action. It's just that it an effort to fit everything in so much was cut that if you haven't read the book before I don't think that you would be able to really understand everything that was going on. Then again since I have read the books so many times maybe I am just unconciously looking for parts that are missing! Who knows! Frankly though I am such a huge fan of this series that I am not sure I could be disappointed by any graphic novel telling of this universe! I can't wait for volume 3! Ooooo and I loved the bonus story that had a cameo of Anna Latham from the Alpha and Omega series!! Fantastic!

The extra tale at the end positions this world alongside that of Alpha and Omega. And, well, it just all works out brilliantly. One of the things I enjoyed about this graphic novel is the way that the very convoluted motives of Gerry (the villain) in the novel and places them within a simpler context. It’s difficult to take something that is quite complex and simplify it in a way that holds the essence of the original plot. Sam, Adam and Stephen looked nothing like what I have pictured in my mind’s eye. And I will probably continue to picture them in my original way when I read the rest of the Mercedes Thompson novels. But, it was fun to see the same characters through a different person’s eyes. Weirdly enough, reading this graphic novel made me realise that I haven’t pictured Mercedes herself with much detail, since I normally follow along and watch the world through her own eyes.

Actually, it have so many panels, and I think the illustrator want to dump all the conclusion into one volume, so it can be confusing to read. The end of this graphic novel also feature a bonus story about Mac, the werewolf whom at first volume are rescued by Mercy, but bring trouble afterward. A little nice add, and also provide some background story. It also introduced reader to Anna Latham, the heroine of Alpha and Omega series. Not sure if this adaption is faithful to the book material, since I need to re-read Moon Called again, but I can said the illustrator did a good job to bring Mercy and her co into the media called comic.

    Another serviceable adaptation but nothing all that much extra. Like before, not a big fan of the way the werewolves are drawn - I did like Darryl, glasses? Vampires were fine. The short backup story was good enough. Mercy was just done better than the rest. But otherwise readable, well paced, well written.

    4.5/5 stars Loved this second collection a bit more, though to be honest, I felt the last bit was rushed so as to keep the book in two volumes. The last two pages didn't help resolve things, and the bonus chapter was just as uninteresting as the last volume's. BUT. I love being back in Mercy's world. 4.5/5 stars Loved this second collection a bit more, though to be honest, I felt the last bit was rushed so as to keep the book in two volumes.

    Amazing, just like the first part, although I didn’t remember the extent to which all the manly males in the book were pushing aside Mercy, hmm. Or, maybe my views on the matter are that much stronger now. Nevertheless, our lovely coyote is a character worth reading about and the novels have renewed my passion for the rest of the series!

    The comic version of the book is good for refreshing you memory of what happened but I would recommend the book series over the comic. The characters are poorly transferred over to the comic format and do not follow descriptions given by the books. I will probably not continue reading them other than the comic only stories.

    I love the book, but the artwork in this is so painfully bad. It's looks like the 90s version of the Sims does porn, which is such a tragedy, because the Hopcross Jilly graphic novel is gorgeous.
