A good graphic novel for the boys


By: Doug TenNapel

Genre:  YA graphic novel

Pages: 264

Published: 2010

Read: August

3 out of 5

This is a hard review to write because while it was well-written and illustrated, Ghostopolis is not the type of graphic novel I enjoy. With the ghosts, violence, super heroes and paranormal themes, I would much rather read an in-depth novel. There are too many unanswered questions. Plus, the subject matter is definitely geared more towards teen boys. I did find this story more entertaining than other similar graphic novels I have read.  For a change, the illustrations were bright and colorful. The plot reminded me of the movie Beetle Juice and the book The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.  Since I was so indecisive on this book, I have asked a teen boy to read it and let me know his thoughts.
