Five Mercy Thompson novels have topped the New York Times best-seller list, and her premiere graphic novel did the same. Now Patricia Briggs’ heroic shape-shifter returns to comics! Mercy Thompson inhabits two worlds without truly belonging to either. To the human inhabitants of the Tri-Cities she’s an oddity, a female mechanic operating her own garage. To the town’s darker residents, werewolves, vampires, and fae, she’s a walker, a last-of-her-kind magical being with the power to become a coyote. Mercy warily straddles the fine line dividing our everyday world from that darker dimension… ’till a boy, mauled by vicious werewolves and forever changed by the attack and on the run from those who committed the crime, appears at her door. Now her two worlds are about to collide! Outnumbered and out-muscled, can Mercy possibly save the boy… or even herself?
Moon Called Vol 1 contains the first four issues of this comic. This graphic novel takes us back to the beginning of the Mercy novels. Mercy is a coyote with the ability to shift at will but was raised with werewolves. She’s a mechanic that just wants to run her garage.
I love the Mercy series and was very pleased with the way this graphic novel turned out. It followed the story line and contained beautifully drawn illustrations. The cells contained an adequate amount of text to let the readers follow the story. The added chapter at the end that tells Mac’s story was a nice bonus.
I am not a huge fan of graphic novels but I have to admit that this is probably one of the best I have seen. The illustrators did a fantastic job of telling Mercy’s story. The colors were beautiful and the cells that contained Mercy shifting were phenomenal.
