    1. Jim Butcher Mark Powers Ardian Syaf Chase Conley Brett Booth says:

      Jim Butcher is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera, and a new steampunk series, the Cinder Spires His resume includes a laundry list of skills which were useful a couple of centuries ago, and he plays guitar quite badly An avid gamer, he plays tabletop games in varying systems, a variety of video games on PC and console, and LARPs whenever he can make time for it Jim currently resides mostly inside his own head, but his head can generally be found in his home town of Independence, Missouri.Jim goes by the moniker Longshot in a number of online locales He came by this name in the early 1990 s when he decided he would become a published author Usually only 3 in 1000 who make such an attempt actually manage to become published of those, only 1 in 10 make enough money to call it a living The sale of a second series was the breakthrough that let him beat the long odds against attaining a career as a novelist.All the same, he refuses to change his nickname.

    2. You know those stupid mellowcreme pumpkins that you end up eating around Halloween every year? The ones that are like candy corn on steroids? At first, you eat one, and you’re like, “Ugh…why am I eating this tiny neon orange ball of chemicals? It’s like someone put sugar on nuclear waste and dropped it into a pumpkin mold.”But, something in them makes you want another one (that might be the sugar, of course), and then another, and then another, and before long, you’ve shoved an entir [...]

    3. Graphic novelizations, amirite?So, this is first volume in the omnibus collection of the graphic novelization of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. It contains Welcome to the Jungle, The Dresden Files: Storm Front, Volume 1: The Gathering Storm & The Dresden Files: Storm Front, Volume 2: Maelstrom, and The Dresden Files: Fool Moon, Volume 1 & The Dresden Files: Fool Moon, Volume 2, and a short called Restoration of Faith that shows the first time Harry and Murphy met.Normally, I'd only recomme [...]

    4. melissa413readsalotI loved this omnibus! The graphics are amazing! There are the three novels that I loved and a little one at the end that was ok. The first one is Welcome To The Jungle which is one of my favorites. I loved the zoo setting and that Harry had to get the animals off the hook for the killings. And for the love of Bob :) I just think he is great! I love how he helps Harry out in the books. There is a powerful, or she thinks she is powerful, witch up against Harry in this first book [...]

    5. Storm Front was handled every well. Loved the art, and the story still holds. I did not like the art all that much for Fool Moon. It was just odd and not as well donewhich doesn't help with the fact that it is the weakest story in the entire series

    6. Reviewed for THC Reviews"4.5 stars overall"Welcome to the Jungle by Jim Butcher, Ardian Syaf - Welcome to the Jungle was another enjoyable short story in the Dresden Files series, this time in graphic novel format. I rarely read graphic novels, but have to say that this one was quite fun. It was kind of like reading a movie or watching a book.:-) The illustrations were very appealing and complimented the text perfectly. They also expressed the emotion and action of the scenes quite well. The ill [...]

    7. This omnibus collects 4 stories.Welcome to the Jungle: An comic book original prequel story that has great art and writing. 4/5Storm Front: An adaption of the first novel and easily one of the best adaptions I have read from book to comic! 5/5Fool Moon: An adaption of the second novel. Unfortunately, the art is pretty bad and makes it a little hard to follow the story in some places, but good overall. 3.5/5Restoration of Faith: An adaption of a short story (of which I have not read). The art is [...]

    8. I had an enormous slump the past few months an in order to get back into Dresden's world i figured why not pick up the omnibus. It was great re-reading the first two in comic book form. I forgot a few things but those are minor. I love how the art is drawn and seeing Harry drawn on paper strengthens the hots from this guy( roro) for Harry. I do hope that the other novels will be adapted to the comic medium some day . It will take a while , haha.

    9. All told, I thought it was pretty good. "Fool Moon" was the weakest part of the omnibus by far, in my opinion. However, "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Storm Front" were good enough to make up for it. If you are a fan of the Dresden Files, this is an interesting way to revisit the first two books in the series.

    10. Good Vs. Of Butchers 1st 2 Entries in the Dresden Files Comic SeriesHonestly, I approached this with some hesitation. I was disgusted by the TV series, and was skeptical that the is series would be more of the same. I was more than pleasantly surprised to find all of the little touches, beat up be, cat named Mister, actual power staff, much compression of the plot and story lines but that's to be expected with the format. I had wondered what Butcher had been doing since the book series has stall [...]

    11. Ensi ihastuksen jälkeen sain vähän liian suuren annostuksen Harry Dresdenistä. Ehkäpä tämä toimisi paremmin ihan luettuna romaanina. Nyt jatkuva mätkityksi joutuminen ja Harryn epäonni säilyä ehjin nahoin mistä tahansa tilanteesta tuntuu sarjakuvamuodossa aivan liialliselta. Tarinoissa vaihtuu piirrostyyli useasti, mikä osaltaan vaikuttaa siihen, etten ihan täysillä näistä pitänyt. Tässä omnibus-kokoelmassa on neljä tarinaa, joten lukemista näissä riittää.

    12. Great adaptations of the novels. There are a couple of well shadowed "racy" pictures if you are looking for a graphic novel for a younger reader. I really enjoyed this, Welcome to the Jungle is an in-between that I had not read prior to reading it here.

    13. This was awesome! I love the books so I knew I would like the graphic novels. Can't wait to read the rest of them !

    14. The quality (visual, especially) of the books goes up and down, but these are a fun read even when they're sub-standard.It's Jim Butcher, and that's always worth the price of admission.

    15. This volume contains Welcome to the Jungle (an original comic story), Storm Front, and Fool Moon. The art varies from story to story but is consistently good. I was already familiar with the stories, having read the novels. I enjoyed that in Storm Front, they took you away from Dresden's pov and gave you more background on Morgan's dealings during the adventure. Also, I thought Welcome to the Jungle was a great little Harry Dresden adventure. If you are a fan of Chicago's only wizard for hire, t [...]

    16. I'm a big fan of the Dresden books and these comic adaptations translate the feel and tone really well. The writing remains strong and the art in Welcome to the Jungle and Storm Front, by Syaf and Bret Booth is excellent. The art in Fool Moon on the other hand is amateurish at best. Overall it does what is needed but is a very low standard for a professional comic. If you can ignore the poor art then this book is great.

    17. This was a great set of stories - too bad some of them were nearly identical to the TV shows (Actually I'm not sure which came first?). They were very well done, except for the last ones, in which Harry was drawn very comicy, which just doesn't fit for him! All in all, a great Christmas present to me!

    18. The stories were really good, in fact good enough to overcome my dislike for the art in some of the stories. Storm Front is probably the best overall in the collection and Fool Moon was pretty good too, only slightly ruined by the art.

    19. Fun readButcher's Dresden Files. Can't go wrong there. Retelling of a couple stories in color, and a couple newer ones for fun, all and all a great value for an even greater read.

    20. Lovely depictions of the original stories. It makes it quite a bit easier to visualise what Butcher is talking about. Stylistically it could use a more uniform standard, but the differences make sense when you take into account that different artists worked on the stories bundled in this book.

    21. It primarily contained already published stories, which was ok because it was interesting to see it transitioned into a graphic novel. I loved the art in storm front but didn't care for the art in fool moon at all.

    22. As ever, the moniker "Harry Potter for adults" both sums it up and doesn't do it justice. This collection mostly mirrors the books - but they were good stories anyway, so it works.
