Second book of a glorious two-volume graphic novel adaptation of the New York Times bestselling novel. Young Bod is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, wasn't being raised by ghosts, and didn't have a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead.
There are lots of adventures in the graveyard for a boy--including trips into the netherworld beneath a lost crypt. But if Bod leaves, he will be in danger from the man Jack--who has already killed Bod's family. Despite the danger, Bod wants to attend school with the living. But leaving the graveyard for the outside world puts more at risk than Bod knows.
Each chapter in this adaptation by P. Craig Russell is illustrated by a different luminary from the comic book world, showcasing a variety of styles from a breadth of talent. A gorgeously illustrated masterpiece, and we don't use the term lightly. This is a delight for all ages, from young to old.
Artists David Lafuente, Scott Hampton, P. Craig Russell, Galen Showman, and Kevin Nowlan lend their own signature styles to this volume to create an imaginatively diverse and yet cohesive interpretation of Neil Gaiman's luminous novel.
"The Graveyard Book, by turns exciting and witty, sinister and tender, shows Gaiman at the top of his form. In this novel of wonder, Neil Gaiman follows in the footsteps of long-ago storytellers, weaving a tale of unforgettable enchantment."--New York Times Book Review
