 In 2001, audiences first met and fell in love with a twelve-year-old criminal mastermind named Artemis Fowl.  Since then, the series has sold over seven million copies in the United States alone. Now, this phenomenally successful series is being translated into a graphic novel format. Eoin Colfer has teamed up with established comic writer Andrew Donkin to adapt the text. For the first time, rabid fans will be able to see what Foaly’s tin hat looks like; discover just how “Beet” Root got his name; and of course, follow their favorite criminal mastermind as he plots and connives in action-packed, full-color panels.  /DIVDIV

I am very much suprised. Most books that are turned to graphic novels often have mixed reviews by either professionals nor readers. Artemis Fowl was a great and original book and should be read, but when I heard of a transformation of this thrilling novel into a comic, many would say I would be a pessimist if I was a bit on the down side of my review, yet this graphic novel suprised me. It gave the image of the young genius as I projected in the mind and managed still to grasp fans at hand. I am not saying that everyone will be pleased with this transformation, but Colfer manages to still make a great read nevertherless and I have high standards for future books.
