    Mercy Thompson is just plain hot. This graphic novel is a prequel to the books featuring my favorite coyote girl. She comes to the Tri-City area looking for work. Of course Mercy also finds trouble in the form of rogue werewolves that are wanting to battle it out with Adam. Mercy tries for a teaching job then works as a mechanic for a day..then has some time as "Do you want fries with that?" waitress.

I liked this little book because I got to actually see the characters that have lived in my head through the Mercy Thompson books. The guys should love this book because Mercy stays nek-kid a whole bunch.

    Rachel Reads Ravenously

    Hmm, I seem to be in the minority on this one. I love the Mercy Thompson series, so when I found out a prequel graphic novel existed I was jumping for joy. Unfortunately, I didn't like: -the story -80% of the art (which is a must for me, I can't read GR's if I don't like the art) -many characters were nothing like I'd pictured ...and there's the added issue of I got bored. I don't mean to be mean or cruel, but I think I'll be sticking to the books.

    3.5 stars I'm a huge fan of the Mercy Thompson world, its one of the few series that I read on pretty much an annual basis and I just started my 4th reread so I'll be ready for when the latest book, Silence Fallen, releases in March. I realised recently that even though I keep rereading the full length books and the short stories I'd never actually picked up the graphic novels so I thought it was about time I finally gave them a try. Homecoming is actually a prequel story to the main books in the 3.5 stars I'm a huge fan of the Mercy Thompson world, its one of the few series that I read on pretty much an annual basis and I just started my 4th reread so I'll be ready for when the latest book, Silence Fallen, releases in March. I realised recently that even though I keep rereading the full length books and the short stories I'd never actually picked up the graphic novels so I thought it was about time I finally gave them a try. Homecoming is actually a prequel story to the main books in the series which shows how Mercy came to live in the Tri-Cities area and ended up working as a mechanic for Zee. It also shows her first interactions with Zee, Tad, Stefan and Adam which are all things that fans of the series will probably be interested in seeing first hand. Although it's technically a prequel and can be read even if you're not familiar with the series I think you'll probably appreciate it more if you're familiar with the world and can recognise the characters as they appear. The downside of being so familiar with this series is that I already had pretty set ideas in my head about what each of the characters would look like, these are characters who already feel real to me and I'll admit that the artist depictions didn't always match my own versions. Obviously no artist will be able to create versions that appeal to every fan of the series so I don't hold that against anyone and overall I did really enjoy the artwork. The major problem here is that the artist changed at some point during the process so characters like Mercy weren't drawn consistently throughout the book. I've included a picture showing four of the different faces Mercy was given just in the first few pages of the book, she would pretty much change from scene to scene (even within drawings from the same artist!) and I found that incredibly jarring. It wasn't just Mercy's face that changed, her body type did too - she'd be slim in one scene and voluptuous in the next and that lack of consistency bothered me far more than the fact that the characters weren't quite how I pictured them in my head. I'd been so excited when I saw the cover because that version of Mercy is pretty close to how I expected her to look but I don't think she actually appeared again anywhere inside the book. Although I was disappointed I'm still glad I read this story, it was fun getting to see a bit more of Mercy's background and it made a nice change to see the characters in a different format. I'm just not sure I'd bother rereading this every time I revisit the series. I think if you're a huge fan of the series then it's still worth picking up a copy of Homecoming but if you decide to skip it you're not really missing out on anything vital.

I think that made the plot of Homecoming more fun in a way, because it was neat to go back and see how Mercy ended up where she is in the beginning of Moon Called and how she met all of these characters. On the other hand, the art in most of this graphic novel is... I'm sorry, it's really not enjoyable, and that's a basic requirement for me to give GNs good star ratings. Half of the graphic novel portrays Mercy in the most ridiculous and inconsistent ways (in one panel, she's super buff; in the next, she's ridiculously curvy with no muscle tone at all), while the other half literally looks like someone did mediocre 3D modeling of the panels and then sketched over it. I don't even know how else to explain it, but if you've read this, you probably know what I mean. Anyways, do I recommend this for the full Mercyverse experience? For sure. It's interesting and we get to see how cute and goofy Stefan looks, which I loved. Is this a well-made graphic novel in its own rights, though? Not really.

    The visual medium has a distinctive way of conveying a story to a reader. Unlike movies, graphic novels encourage a reader to use their imagination based on the visual images presented (we see the artist rendering, but our minds process those pictures into a three-dimensional finished product in our minds).

Unlike movies, graphic novels encourage a reader to use their imagination based on the visual images presented (we see the artist rendering, but our minds process those pictures into a three-dimensional finished product in our minds). Honestly, I wasn't quite sold on the concept of popular, already published books translated into the graphic novel medium. Now I am! It’s just an additional way to gain exposure to one’s favorite books and series. It was utterly diverting to see Mercy Thompson's prequel story in the graphic novel format! As most already know, I am a huge fan of Patricia Briggs and this series. Seeing Mercy in action on the page, not to mention the other characters from this series I know and love, just primes the well of my devotion. The artwork is beautiful, and the script feels like Mercy's voice, which was crucial to connecting to this graphic novel as an authentic part of the Mercy Thompson story. In other words, it was an extension of the series as I know. For readers who are curious about how Mercy ended up in the Tri-Cities, working for Zee, with the oh-so scrumptious Adam Hauptman as a landlord, this book will fill you in on that. The artists captured the motion and action of a story in which wolves clash with each other over territory--rogues versus Adam’s pack under the aegis of Bran Cornick, the Marrok (leader of all North American werewolves); vampires attacking humans (and one vampire named Stefan befriending Mercy); and a smaller, but incredibly courageous walker (Mercy) who dives in to save the day when necessary. The colors were beautiful, and the artists render Mercy beautifully, revealing her appeal, valor, and strength of will. Stefan is quite creepy-looking. I can see why Mercy was wary of Stefan and his offer of friendship. Zee has a Loki-like mischievous look to his face that fits what I would think of him as a gremlin. Adam is as gorgeous and full of presence as he seems in my mind. The wolves are dangerous and powerful, creatures that inspire fear in others, even the wolves who don’t attack humans. Mercy’s coyote form is small and spry and just what I imagined. I’d say the artists did Patricia Briggs’ characters justice. Mercy is the kind of heroine you want to give a high five. She's so down-to-earth and fierce in an everyday way. She has to work for a living, and is not afraid to do so. Nor is she unwilling to pay her dues. She's taken steps towards establishing her independence and keeping it. She clearly has emotional wounds from being abandoned by her mother, later losing her adoptive parents and the safety of Bran, the Marrok's pack. She rejects the Marrok's overtures to take her back in, determined to live her own life. You can see how ‘complicated’ her relationship with Adam promises to be. Lots of tension and sparks between them already. Homecoming is a great addition to the Mercy Thompson series. It successfully captures the spirit of this series for fans. Homecoming takes us back to the start of Mercy’s time in the Tri-Cities, fills in the blanks on what we don’t know about her prior to Moon Called, and exploits the visual medium to tell the story of one of my all-time favorite heroines in beautiful, living color. I need to pick up the other Briggs graphic novels at the library as soon as I have the time to fit them into my reading schedule!

    I think it's safe to say that I'm a huge Mercy fan. I've read all 8 books multiple times and am anxiously waiting for books 9, 10 and 11 as well as the rest of Alpha and Omega series.

I love that the artists made Zee, (who is probably my favorite fae in the whole series) just like an older balding Wolverine. Also, when Adam was introduced.. I could tell it was him straight away. His character was pretty spot on. Mercy was OK -- and I may be biased in saying that because the level of her badassery has been progressing further and further in each book and for this they had to do whatever the opposite of character development is, so that was definitely impressive. She just needed more tattoos. She was still her sneaky coyote self though. Lying-without-lying and interfering with shit even if the Alpha of a badass wolf pack explicitly warns her not to. Heh. It's great to see events that have been referenced throughout the other books. Fans of the books, if you ever get the chance, make sure to read these because come on... It's Mercy but WITH PICTURES. Pure awesomeness.

    I am a huge fan of the series, so I had to give this a try. The story was ok as a prequel to the series, although the telling of it was disjointed. As I fan I wondered about the changes to the book canon. Wouldn‘t it make sense, if this fitted into the series? Not a lot of world building. I doubt I would have understood what was going on or who they all were and related to each other, if I didn‘t know the books. Mercy looks different in every chapter. Her face changes, her body shape changes. Some I am a huge fan of the series, so I had to give this a try. The story was ok as a prequel to the series, although the telling of it was disjointed.

Her face changes, her body shape changes. Sometimes she is muscular, sometimes she looks like Barbie with runner‘s legs. Big boobs, small boobs, pointy chin, square chin, malnourished looking, at times badly proportioned. Very odd. The other humans or werewolves weren‘t terribly well done either. I suppose it‘s silly to expect them all to be anatomically correct, but sometimes the drawings looked a bit too amateurish for my taste. Bottom line, don‘t bother. I will certainly not get another of these comics. Apparently they have also done comics for Laurell K Hamilton, so those are out as well.

    First off..If you have yet to read the Mercy Thompson series, I HIGHLY recommend it. It's an amazing addition to the Urban Fantasy genre and each book is better than the last. I'm highly anticipating the Fifth book in the series "Silver Borne". It's going to be amazing! This however is a Graphic novel, which made me very excited when I first heard that Mercy was moving to comics. The artwork in the book is awesome and portrays Mercy awesome.

This however is a Graphic novel, which made me very excited when I first heard that Mercy was moving to comics. The artwork in the book is awesome and portrays Mercy awesome. It's pretty close to what I originally pictured her as well(minus some of the muscles), so that was a bonus. The story is about how she become who she is now and what she went through first moving next to the amazing Adam. Stefan has a occurring role, which I was happy about. Which is natural considering they first meet when she first arrives in the Tri-Cities. If your already a fan of Mercy and can't decide if you want to buy the hardcover Graphic novel, I'd say it's a good call. If you collect her books then I'd say its a major asset to the collection and a MUST have! Mercy is brought into color for us to see and we get to enjoy more of our beloved characters! When I find myself begging for Silver Borne to come out I just open that up and get my dosage. :) I really hope she makes more graphic novels for Mercy!

Yeah I enjoyed it, the story was OK the art was OK....everything was OK. Nothing was great. I'll forget it by tomorrow. Honestly it's derivative.

    I was not particularly fond of the drawing style of the volume (apart from the cover), but I enjoyed finding out how Mercy came to call the Tri-Cities home. It was fun seeing how she first met Stefan and Adam among other recurring characters and her impressions and frame of mind at the time. I might check the rest of the graphic novels in the series sometime, if only for the extra tidbits they give us, or to make the wait for the next book in the series less frustrating.

    Wow, I just read my first graphic novel. And I liked it. So have I been converted to a new book format? Unfortunately, I think the answer to that will be no. I've tried reading some of my husband's graphic novels before today and I've come to the conclusion that my brain just doesn't work in the right way to pick up the entire story in the combination of the images, words and layout.

So have I been converted to a new book format? Unfortunately, I think the answer to that will be no. I've tried reading some of my husband's graphic novels before today and I've come to the conclusion that my brain just doesn't work in the right way to pick up the entire story in the combination of the images, words and layout. I hadn't realised how important page layout could be in a graphic novel until I tried reading one of Dave's and couldn't follow it at all. It also doesn't help that I am very much NOT a visual person. I don't easily recognise visual patterns and struggle to remember people's names and faces (however do teachers do it?). I did one of those tests once, where you work out how you best take in information. I was so far onto the read/write scale even the guy giving me the test was surprised. I don't see pictures in my head when I read and I have to keep asking hubby "who's that character?" when we watch a movie, even if I saw them only a scene or two ago. I even frequently have to ask who an actor is and am usually quite surprised to discover it is someone famous whom I should recognise. So no, I'm not a visual person, and I suspected a visual medium wouldn't work for me. So far, it hasn't. But I found this book to be nicely straight forward for a grapic novel no-hoper like me. The story mostly moves progressively, and on the whole the flashbacks could be quickly recognised - even if I was a little confused the first time. But all the same, I think the fact I already knew the basics of the tale from backstory in the Mercy Thompson novels helped me a lot. I could say, "oooh, that's Zee" or "hey, there's Uncle Mike" because I already knew the characters. If it had just been a bunch of drawings and a sparsely-worded story I didn't know (strongly read/write, remember, I need words much more than I need pictures) then I think I would have struggled. Maybe that's why I struggled when trying to read hubby's graphic novels. I was going in cold and didn't have a clue. So, after all those caveats, I'll say that I liked the book. I liked seeing Mercy come to the Tri-Cities. (Say, is that three cities that have merged or just once city called Tri-Cities? This New Zealander has no idea.) I like the way the person she came there to try to be was totally different from the one she actually turned into. It was nice to see her meet already-established characters like Zee and Stefan (and Tad too) and their first meeting makes her relationship with Adam in the very first book, where she goes out of her way to annoy him when she can, make lovely sense. The drawings seemed good to me (don't forget, I'm the total and absolute opposite of an expert) and I could usually remember which character was which, something that isn't always the case with me. The book was beautifully made with slick, glossy pages and lovely production values. I suspect it hasn't been borrowed too many times as it hasn't started to lose that shine yet. Would I read more graphic novels about Mercy. Yes, I would. But I admit that I would be reading them for more story about Mercy (or about Anna and Charles if they make it to comic format) than because it was a graphic novel in general. As I said at the beginning, my brain just doesn't seem to "get" graphic novels and I've got way more than enough prose novels to keep me happy for a very long time yet. Like, say, the new Mercy book coming out in March. But if you are a Patricia Briggs fan anway, give it a try. If you are a Patricia Briggs fan and a graphic novel fan, definitely give it a try. I'd be interested to hear what regular graphic novel readers thought of it. Does the fact it was simple and linear enough for me to follow mean it was too easy for you? I came to it totally as a prose book reader with visual issues so I suspect I don't count as the target audience in any way.

    The Flooze

    Mercy’s arrival in the Tri-Cities is just as eventful as you’d hope. **3.5** This GN covers Mercy’s initial meetings with Adam and Stefan, as well as how she came to work for Zee. It’s fun to see the set-up for these relationships. However, I wasn’t a major fan of the artwork. Zee is spot-on, as is Darryl. Stefan looks a mite more frightening than I’ve ever pictured him, with his hollow cheeks and zombie-ish pallor--looking as he does, no one could ever mistake him for a member of the living.

Stefan looks a mite more frightening than I’ve ever pictured him, with his hollow cheeks and zombie-ish pallor--looking as he does, no one could ever mistake him for a member of the living. Mercy was the greatest disappointment (and no, that is not a comment on the nudity, which I thought was very fitting). In some panels, she’s completely oversexualized. The Mercy of the books is a good-looking gal, not some buxom bombshell with curves that won’t quit and the face of a model. In other panels she looks like she spends night and day shooting steroids, with thighs that would rival a footballer's. These inconsistencies and exaggerations do not suit the character. As for the story itself, Mercy seems more irascible than normal but she’s younger and only just finding her niche. She displays those same traits we love her for: helping when she can, sticking her nose into danger, and earning the begrudging respect of the supernatural beings she encounters. It’s a fitting origin-story. It also nicely establishes the tension between Mercy and Adam, as well as the fast friendship she shares with Stefan. Overall, it’s a nice addition to the series, but it doesn’t make me yearn for more GN adaptations.

This was my first graphic novel experience and I was somewhat disappointed. In this prequel to The Mercy Thompson Series, it introduces us to the tri-city area Mercy calls home. The story line is good, however, it holds several major inconstancy/ inaccuracies are apparent throughout the novel but don’t let that distract you. It is an enjoyable read if you are a fan of the Mercy Thompson Universe! However, I feel I must warn readers, especially the females. Mercy strong heroin character goes from being a Native American/ white coyote with a back bone to an always naked brunette with big tits a little brain. I enjoyed a peek into tantalizing not so much a relationship ignites a flare when Adam thrusts his way into Mercy life. However, again ~this differs from what Patricia Briggs has written in her series. We also discover a new reason the cat likes wolves and why the cat will never be eaten by Adam no matter how grumpy he may seem. In addition, readers learn a different scenario as to how Ted, Stefan and Zee fit in Mercy’s life. Again, that differs from the original story line. In conclusion, in the back of this hardback graphic novel, readers will find and enjoy an art gallery and an interview with the author, Patricia Briggs, by David Lawrence. My absolute favorite and will read again and again. I strongly recommend! It has outstanding qualities. The characters are wonderful and surprising and multi-dimensional. The writing is luring, engaging, and well-crafted enough to keep me interested from cover to cover and beyond. The plot is astonishing with twists and turns weaved into a well thought and planned story. There’s no pretense and romance was well balanced and done entirely correctly with properly distributed amounts of hints, behaviors and incredible, undeniable chemistry. Predictability is at an all-time low. With the exception of series based books that follow the same path but are just as good. Overall, Favorite, must read again, recommend!!!

    This "origin story" for Mercy Thompson, et.al., was sort of weird. I enjoyed it, but none of the characters looked like how I envisioned them. And Mercy seemed more confrontational in these comics than she is in the books. But Patricia Briggs wrote it (actually, according to the post-story interview, she wrote a short story and David Lawrence wrote the "script") and she had input into the art (or she agreed with it, at least, per the interview).

In other words, it "skipped" in places and seemed sort of disjointed as a result. So, was the story enjoyable? Yes. Was the art good? Also yes, though not really to my taste. The one thing I didn't like (apart from how "my" characters were portrayed) was . . . I thought Adam moved in and built his house after Mercy had already been living in the Tri-Cities for a bit? In this story, Adam was already there when Mercy arrived and his house was already built when he told Mercy that they were neighbors. So did the back story change between Moon Called and this comic? ??? :-( But this graphic novel was enjoyable enough that I will read more of Mercy-in-comic-form should more ever be published.

    Totally forgot I didn't review this! Also got so busy I didn't keep going with the rest of the series *ugh* Anyhow, I really liked reading this and it was interesting to actually see the characters drawn out-- not exactly what I thought in my head, but I liked it. I can't remember now what I didn't like.... ugh I'll have to re-read it later. A very interesting and good prologue to the story. Hopefully I can get back to this series soon!!

In the other side, she got visit from someone. That someone is Adam Hauptman (the picture of him, oh so... great!) Adam is the alpha from Columbia Pack, a werewolf, that sent by Bran, Mercy's foster father and The Marrok. Adam warn Mercy to left the town, but Mercy resist him. Later, Mercy known that there are a danger from rogue werewolves,and Adam is sent not to warn her, but to eliminated the rogue too... When first time I read this, I'm a little bit confused, I don't know this book is considered as prequel. But when I read Moon Called, I understand, the story in this graphic novel can read alone, but still tie in to the series. Recommended for Mercy Thompson fans....

    I love graphic novels but I'm also really picky about the artwork. I wasn't too excited about how Mercy looked, which was also reeeally inconsistent throughout. She would look too masculine and then suddenly oversexualized on the next page, and her face/hair/everything look completely different from the drawings of her inside the book, not to mention nothing like how she looked on the original book covers. And I loved her on the book covers, especially on Iron-kissed. But the story was ok, as it I love graphic novels but I'm also really picky about the artwork.

But even the storyline was a bit shaky since it seemed to wanna veer completely away from what was described to happen in the books in some instances. Like how Stephan and she discuss her being a walker from the ge-go when in the books Mercy says she didn't realize he knew what she was. Overall though, I still liked seeing what Zee and Adam and others looked like in comic form and I'll probably read the next one that comes out too, since I like reading every available piece of a story I can.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of the graphics depicting the characters. They were more cartoony with the proportional views than I expected. However, I did enjoy the short story and details behind Mercy’s move to the Tri-Cities. While I don’t think it necessary to read this book since the story is glossed over in the series itself, it was still a fun read.

If you haven't read this series yet I would highly recommend that you do so. It's one of my favourite urban fantasy series, about mechanic Mercy, a walker who has the ability to shift into a coyote. The book is a prequel and tells the story of when Mercy arrives in the Tri-Cities. How she ended up working for Fey mechanic Zee, moves into her trailer and meets Adam, the alpha of the local werewolf pack. Although this is a prequel, I do believe that to a certain degree it assumes that readers have read the other books in advance. As a graphic novel there is very little text and the pictures of course do all the talking, but this does mean it is super quick read. It took me no more than an hour or so. I enjoyed getting an insight into Mercy's life before the series began. Her first meeting with Adam made me smile and as a big fan of Zee it was great to learn about how she ended up working for him. However, the problem with illustrations, or when books are transferred to the screen is that you are looking at something that exists in your imagination through somebody else's eyes. The book was put together by more than one illustrator and it does show. Don't get me wrong, the drawings are beautiful, but how Mercy looks changes from one scene to the next, and this annoyed me a little. There were some drawings where Mercy looked pretty much as I imagined her, tough, lean, long dark hair and tattoos. Then in other drawings she has huge muscles or ridiculous breasts and a voluptuous bottom. Personally, I would have preferred consistency. Also, Mercy with big boobs?! What I did discover while reading this book, is that I'm a words girl. I missed the descriptions, knowing what Mercy was thinking and the snappy dialogue. Because of this the book almost seemed shallow to me and the story quite simplistic. I kept thinking how I would have much preferred it as a novella. VERDICT: An interesting and quick read for Mercy Thompson fans. I'm not sure I would pick up a graphic novel again, even for a quick Mercy fix. This book will undoubtedly appeal to fans of the series, but it seemed to lack something. I'm afraid, I'd prefer a novel any day, but if you're a fan of Mercy and of graphic novels, then this might be right up your street.

    I wasn't really a fan of the art style here... I know that's totally subjective, but still - I like my comic book art just a little less stylized. I don't know if it was artistic choice or not, but proportions were off, faces looked badly drawn, textures didn't always mesh, and the flow from one panel to the next sometimes left me confused... by and large, I got the impression of an untrained artist trying to swim in the deep end, and that really didn't help me as I read the story.

(I'll also say that most of the characters just did NOT look how I pictured them... which isn't the artist's fault, it's just my own brain having formed images for these folks over the last several years) When I'm not enjoying the art of a comic, it becomes very hard for me to enjoy the comic itself. After all, you can give me words on the page all day and I'll be perfectly happy to read your book - but when you add art, it has to carry meaning, intent. You lose words, and the art has to make up for what's been taken away. The art here didn't do that. There are, for instance, points when time passes (hours and hours - enough that it gets dark outside), but neither the writing nor the art recognize this fact... making the sudden appearance of vampires very jarring, when the last thing you knew it was daylight outside. As for the writing... at moments it worked just fine, but it definitely had a flare for the overly dramatic - this wasn't helped by the art that went with those lines, which ALSO went overly dramatic, often in a way that just didn't segue from the previous panel well. Add to that the rapid introduction of many characters (a good 10 years prior to when we meet them in the books - so those who are human look and act very differently) and a variety of plot strings... if I hadn't read the books that went with this, I think I'd have been well and truly lost. The story itself wasn't bad, but wasn't exactly good either. I really did enjoy getting to meet and see back-story for a few characters from the Mercy books. Still, I think I would have enjoyed this more either with a different artist or as a short story.

    ‘Homecoming’ is a graphic novel short story set in the Mercy Thompson universe. The story is by Patricia Briggs and David Lawrence with illustrations by Francis Tsai and Amelia Woo, and cover art by Daniel Dos Santos. ‘Homecoming’ is a prelude to the events in Mercy Thompson’s first book, ‘Moon Called’. Bran has just kicked Mercy out of his pack and she’s moved to the Tri-Cities to put her teaching degree to good use. But in the span of 24 hours Mercy is attacked by one werewolf pack and rescued ‘Homecoming’ is a graphic novel short story set in the Mercy Thompson universe.

Bran has just kicked Mercy out of his pack and she’s moved to the Tri-Cities to put her teaching degree to good use. But in the span of 24 hours Mercy is attacked by one werewolf pack and rescued by a second, beaten bloody by a vampire’s human minion and threatened by one of the local vampire queen’s flunkies. ‘Homecoming’ tells the story of how Mercy came to settle in the Tri-Cities. The graphic novel details her first meeting of Stefan, Siebold Adelbertsmiter (Zee) and his son Tad and the Columbia Basin wolf pack’s Alpha, Adam Hauptman. I perused the reviews of ‘Homecoming’ on Amazon and was thoroughly disappointed to see that it’s been given a 2.5 star rating. Read a few of the reviews and it becomes apparent that ‘Homecoming’s’ unpopularity has nothing to do with the graphic novel itself, but rather reviewer’s stupidity. Many of the Amazon reviewers thought that ‘Homecoming’ was the next novel in Patricia Briggs’ ‘Mercy Thompson’ series, and they bought/pre-ordered the novel thinking it was follow-on from the 4th Mercy book ‘Bone Crossed’. One indignant reviewer even accuses Dabel brothers of misleading fans by giving no indication on the cover that this is a graphic novel… that’s despite the fact that on the cover are the words “an original graphic novel”. Another reviewer sniffs that comics “cheapen the series”. Actually, it does nothing of the sort. Adapting books into graphic novels is fast becoming a popular occurrence in the publishing world. Diana Gabaldon is releasing a graphic novel short story set in the ‘Outlander’ universe, telling a new Jamie and Claire story set in the timeframe of her first book. Kelley Armstrong has an online comic called ‘Becoming’ which is a prologue to the events of her first ‘Women of the Otherworld’ book, ‘Bitten’. Melissa Marr has released a graphic novel set in her YA ‘Wicked Lovely’ universe, with a second graphic novel due for release next year. Laurell K Hamilton has had great success adapting her ‘Anita Blake’ series into comic book format with ‘The First Death’ (2007), ‘Guilty Pleasures’ (2008) and she is currently working on ‘The Laughing Corpse’ for release later this year. Graphic novels do not cheapen a series – they add a new dimension to the universe the author has created. And when it comes to Urban Fantasy in particular, comics are a logical extension of the book series. They offer another layer to the vivid universe the author has created, and visualize the fantastical characters that were previously relegated to the printed word. I think the comic adaptation of Patricia Briggs’s ‘Mercy Thompson’ series made perfect sense, especially because her cover artist, Daniel Dos Santos, has done such a wonderful job of providing a visual framework for readers. Anyone who is familiar with the Mercy books will know that Daniel Dos Santos is a cover-art genius – and he has given Mercy a very distinct look. Unfortunately Dos Santos only did the cover-art for ‘Homecoming’, Francis Tsai and Amelia Woo are responsible for the beautiful illustrations within. Daniel Dos Santos’s work is magnificent, but probably too detailed for the comic book format. Regardless, Tsai and Woo do a fantastic job of visualizing Zee, Stefan and especially Adam. ‘Homecoming’ is a beautiful novel, with wonderful illustrations and an essential story to read if you are a die-hard Mercy fan like me. I loved ‘Homecoming’, but then again I am not prejudiced against comics like some Mercy fans seem to be. I loved the story, especially Stefan and Mercy’s meeting (and a certain picture of shirtless Adam – not since Trent from ‘Daria’ have I found an illustration so sexy). If you are a Mercy fan, check out ‘Homecoming’, it is a damn good GRAPHIC NOVEL.

Seeing a 33-year-old woman squee in a gaming/comic store is an admittedly unusual sight, but that did not stop the reaction. Mercy Thompson has been a favorite character since I found the first book, and Briggs has been a favorite author for even longer. Seeing her work in the graphic novel format was just icing on an already very rich and yummy cake. The artwork for the book is beautiful and fully captures the world of Mercy. I like the various ways Mercy is presented (seems there were several artists on the project at various points). I'm still not sure about how Adam is portrayed, he looked almost Asian in his eyes, and that didn't seem quite right to me. He also seemed a bit on the smallish side, and I always pictured him as a bit bulkier (not fat, but tall/muscular). Shapeshifting issues were dealt with well visually, the artist showed multiple stages of the change in a single panel, like a time-elapse. I was also impressed with the artists' ability to keep Mercy reasonably modest, despite all of the nudity that comes with a bunch of shapeshifters. There were a lot of character introductions in this brief offering, including Uncle Mike, Zee, and Stefan. I wasn't sure about the portrayal of Stefan, but I'm still not sure I ever had a clear picture in my brain for him. Zee's portrayal was spot-on for me. I liked the story, but it seemed too short to me. There was at least one point where I got completely lost due to an unclear flash-forward/flashback equal space-time displacement mess. Mercy's personality was largely there, but lacked a lot of her spark. It's a first foray into the format, though, so a lot can be forgiven as the author tests new waters. I look forward to seeing more of the Mercy books in the graphic format.

    I love the Mercy Thompson book series, and would appreciate this story in novel form. I like some graphic novels, i.e., The Color of Earth series of 3 books. However, I don't like this graphic version. I probably would not like the other graphic novels in this series either. The graphics are interesting, especially to adolescent boys. One thing I hate is the bimbo-ization of Mercy Thompson by the cover artists of the book series and the graphic artists here.

One thing I hate is the bimbo-ization of Mercy Thompson by the cover artists of the book series and the graphic artists here. In the books, I don't picture Mercy as tattooed sex goddess. I believe the books only mention the tattoo that is below her navel - the coyote paw print. That's all I remember. She is sexy, but doesn't wear revealing clothes and multiple tattoos. It's her personality and whole self that are sexy. On the back cover of this graphic there is a picture of Mercy on the hood of a VW with her legs spread obscenely, although clothed. There are several nude pictures of her inside. I am not a prude, but did find it a bit distasteful even though she is a walker and does have to disrobe a lot to change into a coyote. I guess it was my dislike of the overall bimbo-ization that influenced this feeling. I thought that I saw it advertised on Amazon as well as implied by the title as about where Mercy came from. I expected that to be her life with the Marrock in Montana or wherever, maybe even including her birth parents and then the Marrock. I would like to read a book about this, as well as several sequels in the series. Instead, this book is about the beginnings in the Tri-Cities, post-Marrock life. Briggs writes very well in this genre. In the books, not the graphic novel.

    Wow. Just....wow. I've been a die-hard Briggs fan from the first Mercy Thompson book and I was a little hesitant to risk the dissonance that sometimes occurs when a beloved book character is transformed into a graphic representation. However, this version of Mercy, Stefan and (yowza) Adam Hauptman totally added to the book experience. Granted, the gratuitous nakedness of Mercy as well as the sometimes awkward depiction of her face was a little jarring sometimes, but I felt the artist got Zee perfe Wow. Just....wow.

The story itself might better be enjoyed by people who already have read some of the series. Part of the enjoyment for me was the "so that's how it was" moments of when Mercy meets people like Zee, Stefan, and Adam for the first time. While we do get an interesting tidbit about Mercy wanting to be a teacher (before she ends up a mechanic), overall I felt the graphic novel portrayal of her personality was more bitter and irritable than the Mercy I know from the novels. The novel depicts Mercy's arrival in the tri-cities area, which happens to coincide with Adam's takeover of the area werewolves. Bloodshed ensues. Food Designation Rating: Lemon Pepper double-fried french fries with garlic aoli dip, because its spicy and creamy on your tongue at the same time, and you gulp them down compulsively, but they're not by any means good for you.

It was great to get the back story, especially in this beautifully presented form. I'd actually love to read this in full novel form if it is ever released. I guess I just can't get enough of the brilliant series! In graphic novels, people are always going to have issues about the characters not looking the way they imagined them in their heads. I'm personally not too fussy on that score so I was able to just enjoy the beautifully illustrated story. Adam, Stefan and Uncle Mike are however, pretty much the way I imagined them to be and the coyote and wolf animations were wonderful. The book still had Mercy's trademark sarcasm and humour, showing how trouble always seems to find her even when she doesn't want it. Stefan in particular was great in the book but I love his character anyway so I'm a bit biased. A lovely read and I'll be looking out for any other graphic novels in this series.
