    This is how NOT to do a graphic novel adaptation.

Nothing of the sort happens here. Instead, we get a watered-down, bite-size version of the original story. It’s “The Silver Eyes”, diluted Saturday-morning-cartoon edition. Character information is next to nonexistent. We know tha This is how NOT to do a graphic novel adaptation.

Character information is next to nonexistent. We know that they’re childhood friends and Charlie’s dad owned the restaurant. That’s about it. There is no additional information given on any of the other characters and why they’re important, so most of them just feel shoehorned in for no reason other than to fill out the cast. Characters either read like caricatures (Carlton is a wise guy! Jessica is a pretty blonde!) or flat extras (Lamar is black. John is a guy). The art is abysmal. The anatomy is terrible, the colour palette is far too bright and saturated, and the character designs look like something out of a bad webcomic. Something about it, I don’t know exactly what, put me in mind of “CTRL+ALT+DEL”, which is absolutely never a good sign. Jessica looks like the villain in a “not like other girls” meme, with lots of pink lipstick, huge earrings, and outfits that use the same bright pink no matter what lighting she’s standing in. John has no defining features whatsoever—he’s just a brown-haired guy with a brown jacket. The only character whose design feels like an actual design is William/Dave, whose design I admittedly really liked, even if there are some points where his design is inconsistent or just a bit much (Why is he so thin everywhere else but his silhouette is built like a linebacker in the police car? Why does he still look insane in the peaceful photograph of him and Henry?). The problem is that this makes the other characters seem even more flat and uninspired in comparison. There is no emotion conveyed in most of the art whatsoever. No emotional lighting, no memorable facial expressions, and lots of clunky attempts at showing emotion, such as large, bright blue tears and sweat droplets. The technical aspect of the art is awful, too—character’s colours don’t change to match lighting, shadows move orientation from one panel to the next. There’s even some places where important transitional panels are just cut altogether, making the reader guess what went on between these panels (Charlie hears a loud thud and is then hugging Marla, who I’m guessing had knocked on a door and Charlie opened it; Charlie slams a door in a room she’s never shown approaching or entering; etc.). A story like FNaF could have fantastic graphic novel art, with lots of mood lighting and clever perspective changes. It’s a horror story with haunted robots. Do something creative with the fantastic world you’ve been given! Glitching words, creepy effects making use of the metal in the animatronics...I’ve seen so many clever things done by artists in the fandom, and it’s an absolute shame that in a professionally illustrated, official graphic novel, not a single creative opportunity was taken. Panels move along with no sense of creativity or artistry. When it comes to art, it’s one of the laziest graphic novels I’ve ever read. It also seems that there was an attempt to tone the story down in order to market it to a younger audience, and this attempt didn’t go well at all. Unfortunately, it’s a problem FNaF fans are all too familiar with, with ten-year olds on YouTube watching playthroughs and then becoming obsessed with a franchise they don’t understand and aren’t ready for. This has been much to the detriment of the older fans (and original audience), who now have to sit through things like this. This was published under Scholastic’s Graphix label, and unlike the original Silver Eyes trilogy, there is no content warning, meaning that things had to be toned down, since it was being marketed to younger fans. This is a real problem, because it means we’ve lost out on what could have been a great graphic novel that makes use of the horror genre in a new and creative way for the original audience of FNaF. Instead, we get bright red, sparsely used, Monty Python-esque blood and awkward attempts to lighten the tone of a horror story about murdered children. For example, unlike the original novel, it isn’t made clear that the animatronics are haunted by the spirits of the kids who died in them, so you’re just left confused as to why they’re haunted. Michael/Golden Freddy is the only one that’s explained, and even then it’s very softly. These attempts at making the story kid-friendly are made even more awkward by the points in the story that were kept from the original book, such as William/Dave’s graphic explanation of death-by-springlocks, and Clay’s mentioning how he saw the blood streaks left by Michael’s body. It feels like they couldn’t quite decide whether to keep the original tone or make it a kiddie comic, so they just did both. We need a new FNaF graphic novel, one that’s actually marketed to people who can appreciate it. This watered-down, bland attempt was just laughable. But laughable in the way where you’re not really laughing, you’re cringing and wishing PewDiePie had never uploaded a playthrough.

    *I have an ARC of this book* I like to think I'm pretty familiar with the lore of FNAF (Thanks Game Theory!), but I'd never read the books. But when I got the chance to read an ARC of the graphic novel of Silver Eyes, I was curious. I do think it suffered a little bit from not being the completed version because 98% of the drawings are still rough drafts and not finished or colored so I had a little trouble figuring out which character was which sometimes.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. After sleeping on it, going to 2 stars. Too violent, not enough answers and I just didn’t enjoy it. Original review down below. Super creepy and I’m not sure I quite understand about the kids who were killed and how the missing twin ties into everything and who killed the father and I’m left with more questions then answers. 3, I’m confused, stars.

    Not horrible, but not great, either. The art was just okay. You get the impression the artist does a lot of FNAF fan art (the animatronics looked amazing), but the rest of the people just looked kinda weird (view spoiler)[especially Dave. What got me was when they showed pictures of him with Henry, and he looked like a complete nutcase, even though it was supposed to be a nice, normal picture).

    I never read any of the FNAF books before, but when I saw the ARC of this, I decided to give it a shot. I love reading all the theories about FNAF and this game series has such a complex storyline, I figured it would be hard to translate into a book. Obviously I don’t know how the actual book did with telling the story of Freddy Fazbears, but the graphic novel was a little hard to follow. That could have something to do with only the first chapter being inked and colored so far, but I liked the I never read any of the FNAF books before, but when I saw the ARC of this, I decided to give it a shot.

There were a few parts where I was confused about what was happening, or how a scene was supposed to connect to the main plot, but I still enjoyed reading it. It felt like reading a fanfic someone wrote when they were 13 or 14: not exactly the best, but still enjoyable.

    This was just a crap fest. The art was okay, it the storyline was just bad. I only read it because my Son loves this stupid line and I wanted to read it to make sure it was okay for him to read. I don’t think it was the best, but I allowed him to read it and him being 11 loved it. I’m glad he was reading, but sad it was this tripe.

    Pretty alright. Decently written, the characters are kinda boring though. It also might be confusing to outsiders since this book is more of an au and less of a direct adaptation. It was kinda just okay. Adds interesting concepts for theorys.

    This is more of a complimentary graphic novel to the original book rather than a standalone. A lot of information is missing for anyone who picks up the graphic novel if they've never read the book. I had to read a summary of the original book to understand the backstory and all character relationships. I enjoyed the artwork, but this graphic novel was lacking in story development and was very confusing in understanding the plot.

Ten years after horrifying murders took place there, Charlie and her friends reunite on the anniversary and are drawn back to the old pizza place. Freddy’s is still standing, covered by an abandoned shopping mall. When Charlie and her friends break in to explore, they discover that the large animatronic mascots are not as cheery and friendly as one might think. Okay, if you’ve played the game you know what’s coming. You might even be anticipating the fright and gore. Bring it. This story works well as a graphic novel. Gamers who need a storyline behind the game will love the graphics and how they move the plot along. The art is well done in sober shades. Blood is kept to a minimum but the creep factor is well intact. I’m not a gamer, but totally enjoyed the book. Michelle in the Middle https://kissthebook.blogspot.com/2020...

A group of friends (who were friends with a child who disappeared) are together again at a memorial for their late friend. They take a trip down memory lane and find themselves in Freddy’s and slowly discovering what happened to the children. • While this book had its dark moments, I can see my students devouring this graphic novel. It has all the components that middle school students love: mystery, darkness, humor and it’s a graphic novel! This is a fast paced graphic novel that is surely going to be a huge hit once it comes out in December 2019. • Overall, I felt that Five Nights at Freddy’s is a graphic novel with a very Stranger Things feel that students will love. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 #youngadultfiction #yalit #igreads #bookreview #middlegrade #mglit #graphicnovel

As a fan of the Five Nights at Freddy’s game series, this book was a teaser for some of the lore and unanswered questions of the game. There are even a few scenes/shots straight from the games, but changed just slightly so they’re more like Easter eggs. We follow Charlie, a girl from a small town called Hurricane- where, supposedly, no one ever leaves. She spent her childhood with her friends in a pizzeria owned by her father. She’s come back to town after the death of a childhood friend, the cause of which is unknown. There’s a tension in the air as the estranged friends find themselves looking (Scooby Doo-like) for answers. And you don’t need to know anything about the FNAF games to enjoy this book. It’s a good light horror graphic novel for those new or hesitant about scary things and a good abridged version of the original novel of the same name. Anything you didn’t like about it? I would be interested to see what this story is like in full color pages because there may be some confusion for readers from the start. I personally was confused, or at least having difficulty remembering characters’ names post page 11. There’s a set group of characters for a few pages before several more characters and their families are added in. It could be a deterrent for hesitant readers who might want to get to know the characters before they start splitting into groups. Additionally, something I was hoping would change between the original novel and the graphic novel, is that it still reads young. The plot, characters, and style all feel young, but I’m not sure it should be. To whom would you recommend this book? Those looking for more Five Nights at Freddy’s content, video game-style books, or light horror. Who should buy this book? Libraries and bookstores. Where would you shelve it? Horror Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Not unless you’re a fan of the FNAF franchise. Date of review: 1/7/20

It is the tenth anniversary of the missing children (assumed murdered) at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and a group of teens who were childhood friends at the time gather to attend the announcement of a school scholarship for one of the victims, Michael. Teenager Charlie - whose father co-owned the restaurant - and her friends venture to the scene of the crimes. They learn that there is something sinister happening here - that it is not the entertaining joint it used to be. I have not read the novel, but it is my understanding that this is a faithful adaptation of the book. As might be expected in a graphic novel, the text is minimal. Little character development occurs since it is the action of the story that reigns supreme, told in the illustrations by Claudia Schröder, whose artwork is use in the games. The first dozen or so pages are finished in the ARC; they are in full color and promise an exciting adventure. The rest of the book is in rough sketches. Having these in full color will make it easier to track characters during the story. Marked as #1 in a series, these will probably be a hit with fans of both the books and the games. Note: some scenes are pretty violent. The games are listed as "survival horror". The blurb on back describes the "tense, terrifying illustrations". Despite the cute characters on the cover, this is definitely not for younger readers. Optional Purchase for grades 7-9.

    I am a FNAF fan but I have not previously read the novel "The Silver Eyes." I thought the graphic novel adaptation would be a great way to get into this series. That said, the pacing didn't work for me at all. It's hard to explain it but the graphic novel started so slow and the last 25% then was rushed and unsatisfying. The characters were also very flat. Even Charlie, who we get to know the best, was a very blank slate. I was not able to connect with any of them. Art was very amateurish.

Even Charlie, who we get to know the best, was a very blank slate. I was not able to connect with any of them. Art was very amateurish. I couldn't shake the feeling I was reading fanfiction instead of an official release. Characters were made indistinguishable with a case of same face syndrome with one notable exception. (view spoiler)[Hmmm.... I wonder if the only character deliberately drawn differently will be the bad guy? (hide spoiler)] It was also a bit hard to follow scene changes. Moments that would have been powerful in another artist's hands absolutely fall flat here. (view spoiler)[Best example is the scene of Jason in the arcade. When the pictures in the background started changing that could have been so dramatic! (hide spoiler)] TL;DR: All this to say, the story is okay but the art robs it of any possible tension. As is it becomes a bland short story told within the universe of FNAF. Hardcore fans trying to get into the book series might want to pick up the novel and skip the graphic.

    Honestly, the Silver Eyes series is great. Very creative, ties into the game well, and just an all around amazing read even if you haven’t played the game. Claudia Schöder also is an very talented artist. Her fan art is well done and she depicts the animatronics in very detailed ways. And obviously the Five Nights At Freddys game by Scott Cawthon is a huge hit. Unfortunately, the graphic novel wasn’t very good. The way she portrays Dave is gold and her art in the book as well.

Claudia Schöder also is an very talented artist. Her fan art is well done and she depicts the animatronics in very detailed ways. And obviously the Five Nights At Freddys game by Scott Cawthon is a huge hit. Unfortunately, the graphic novel wasn’t very good. The way she portrays Dave is gold and her art in the book as well. However, the story put together in a graphic novel doesn’t really work well. Instead of covering everything in detail like the normal novel does, it can only skim the surface. For instance, they don’t go into much detail with Charlie’s father. I think that if they didn’t rush the making of the graphic novel, they would have more room to put detail in and it could have been great. Sadly, that was not the case. All in all, if you aren’t planning to dig into the franchise and you just want a quick easy read, this would be a great book for you. I do not recommend it for fandom members.

    This could have been great but it just wasn't. I couldn't get into the art and the parts of the story that were included were rushed and clunkily put together. An issue that I have run into with other graphic novel adaptations of full books that is present here is the inclusion of lines that refer back to information that was discussed at length in the novel but they didn't bother to include in the adaptation. It just worries me that someone who hadn't read the source material would be lost and This could have been great but it just wasn't.

It just worries me that someone who hadn't read the source material would be lost and miss out on the build-up to that information. At times it also felt like some of the design choices just didn't match up to the information in the novel. There was so much potential here for background storytelling that just wasn't utilized and other artistic choices that just bothered me. Overall I would only read this for the sake of complete FNAF book consumption as otherwise it just doesn't add anything to the story of either the books or the games.

    {My thoughts} – The cover to this book is appealing and engaging to fans of the series. The illustrations go hand and hand with the text upon the pages. The illustrations have a spooky like feel to them as does the text. It’s all really well done and a fine end product for a graphic novel. I have never read the original book series, but after reading the graphic novel I just might need to. My 13 year old son is obsessed with the books and the game and well anything that has to do with it. I can u {My thoughts} – The cover to this book is appealing and engaging to fans of the series.

I can understand why that is now and I will need to read the original books so that I might better understand the series. I think that his book will make a perfect addition to any child’s graphic novel collection. I look forward to reading more of the books in this particular series as they release.

    I've been a hardcore FNAF fan since Markiplier stumbling into the first game and then somehow becoming THE KING. OF FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY'S. Let me just say, I'm in love love love. The creepy aspect of whatever the hell is going on in Scott Cawthon's mind is so motivational to me. I'm glad I was able to find this graphic novel and lift my fears about the books being so different from the game--but the lore is so multifaceted, I have to go back and buy the actual novels and short stories now beca I've been a hardcore FNAF fan since Markiplier stumbling into the first game and then somehow becoming THE KING.

I'm glad I was able to find this graphic novel and lift my fears about the books being so different from the game--but the lore is so multifaceted, I have to go back and buy the actual novels and short stories now because I WANT to continue to learn about this world, I WANT to be creeped out, I WANT to get in on the drama and gore and---I want to follow everything MatPat (The Game Theorist) concocts because I've grown to love this franchise. And I've seen some Easter Eggs in this graphic novel! I cannnnooottt. I'm fangirling as I wait for the next Game Theory and the new game release in 2020. HOOKED!

    An adaptation of a novel of the same name, which I haven't read. I imagine this adaptation isn't the best possible reflection of the source material, because it really isn't terribly good. It reads like a very condensed version, and one that wasn't thoughtfully done. There are so many questions with no answers or incomplete, unsatisfactory ones that I'm genuinely not sure what's meant to be left vague and what's bad storytelling. The art is... it's not good. It would be acceptable in a webcomic, An adaptation of a novel of the same name, which I haven't read.

It would be acceptable in a webcomic, but it's very weird in a professionally published adaptation of a major media property to see quality this poor. About the only things that look decent are the animatronics, so I guess that's something. There are some decent jump scares in here, but overall the story is a mess, the characters are cardboard, and the art is terrible.

    This is a graphic novel adaptation for The Silver Eyes, which was a novel set in the world for the video game series, Five Nights at Freddy's. I've read the entire trilogy of that series already and so I knew exactly what was going to happen when I popped into this adaptation. I don't think this is something for someone who hasn't already read the Silver Eyes. There's a lot of details that are kind of skipped over due to the art format.

Overall, I think this is more of a fun extra for someone who has already the novel for the Silver Eyes.

    Finished in a day, I really enjoyed the original silver eyes book. I rated the graphic novel 3 stars because I think it stayed too safe. The pictures weren’t freaky enough. I think people like to pretend FNAF is a kid thing because so many kids like it but it’s a horror video game and the books deal with some pretty creepy things. I think a different artist could have captured the creepiness better.

Since I’ve read all the books I know the things that happen later on in the series and if it stays like this it’s gonna take away from the overall story. I suppose staying safe may get more sales from the younger audience but it isn’t true to the material, it really detracts from the creepiness of the story. They need to kick it up a notch if they’re going to do the rest of the series.

    This book is based off of the very popular video game "Five Nights at Freddy's" which I enjoyed very much. The video game world is so complex, so the creator wrote this book to help with the storyline of his newly created world. The book is about the daughter of the creator of Freddy Fazbears. It follows her as she visits her long lost friends after the bite of '82. The friends then find a run down Freddy Fazbears, so what do they do? They go inside of coarse!

    So, I have never read the FNAF book series that came out which this graphic novel is based off of. I'm also not that into FNAF and I don't know that much about the lore besides some information that friends have given me. With this being said, the story was fine for those who have a basic understanding on the story. The character designs weren't fun to look at but the animatronics were actually well designed and creepy. I couldn't care for Charlie and her connection to the FNAF series which bore So, I have never read the FNAF book series that came out which this graphic novel is based off of.

I understand this graphic novel is a tie-in to the series to wrap up the lore for those who have questions but its just... okay.
