My rating: 4 of 5
My thoughts on the graphic novel:
This graphic novel is actually a prequel of (at that time upcoming) tv series Falling Skies. Here we get to read & see some of the events that's happening before the tv series & are mentioned in the series. Overall I enjoyed a LOT the story, I liked the illustrations & they were really similar to the actors (as they should be) & the novel did what it supposed to do, it got me excited for the tv series. So, if you loved the tv series (I have to admit that I didn't - the storylines of the tv series were quite average & although the characters were good, the only other good thing about it were the last 5 min in the last episode, so I still might give it a chance in season 2, just out of curiosity about the ending of season 1), you'd love the graphic novel & I recommend it!
