A good graphic novel for the boys
By: Doug TenNapel
Genre: YA graphic novel
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.
