So you remember the ending of The Lunar Chronicles? Well what was Cinder going to do with a bunch of wolve-hybrid-men who want to eat people? Well she wants to help them and get them fused into the community.
But as flesh-hungry beast, they don’t always want to listen. Sometimes, they want to stay on earth and have a feast. So who do you call when the Eartheners don’t trust the Lunars to come down and get all their puppy-men because they may want to control them with their minds? How about a robot named Iko!?
I think this volume was a great start to the series. It’s really hard to transition from one art form to the next, as you all are well away from books-to-movies or books-to-television-series. Graphic Novel transitions aren’t any different.
Iko was portrayed really well I thought. Her personality really came through and I liked that she was the main focus of the series. She was the only one who didn’t pair up in the series so I thought maybe she deserved her happily ever after. I also thought she was one of a kind because she was an android with an actual personality.
Other characters, I didn’t think were portrayed very well. Example Thorne. First, he looked like a teenage boy. Second, he seemed kind of spineless and like a teenage boy instead of the space-pirate I fell in love with.
For such a pretty world, I thought maybe the illustrations didn’t really fit the story. Standing by themselves, I liked the illustrations. But for something from The Lunar Chronicles, I expected a little more..pretty? That might just be me though.
Overall, I thought it was a good start. I went into the graphic novel knowing there were going to be some bumps since we are transitioning into a different from of story telling, and I can tell you it went a lot smoother. I can’t wait to read the second volume!
