I still love this story, but I'm not sure its entirely comprehensible without knowledge of the books as well (although that's one of my complaints about Cry Wolf in general because it really requires you to have read the novella Alpha and Omega first). I'm quite disappointed in the artwork. Characters' faces change so much from panel to panel that you have to depend on other cues (or book knowledge) to figure out who is who, and the artwork in general just seems really unsophisticated. Some images are lovely, but others just seem rough and unfinished. Still enjoyable, but I was hoping for something a little prettier. ( )

I'm really disappointed in the art in this graphic novel version of the Alpha & Omega series. I think I was expecting something a little slicker like I saw in The Dresden or Outlander graphic novels. ( )

Cry Wolf is the first full-length book in the Mercy Thompson spin spin-off series. It is a great story - and a nice look into the lives of the Marrock and his pack in Montana, where Mercy was raised. The only downside is - having read all the other books in the Mercy series first - the storyline isn't as uncertain as the Mercy Thompson books have been [since the reader already knows a bit about which of the main wolves are still alive]. Still, it reads just like you'd expect from a book by Patricia Briggs - so it's still one you'll enjoy if you liked the Mercy Thompson series. ( )

Quick & Dirty: This is a graphic novel based off of the urban fantasy book, Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs.

Opening Sentence: No, don’t…Justin…Leo…Charles…NO!

The Review:

I am a longtime fan of the Mercy Thompson world, including the original series and its spin-off, Alpha and Omega. Both are filled to the brim with memorable one-liners and vivid imagery. Each character charms their way into your heart with their personalities and indomitable wills. They are all strong in their own way and Charles and Anna are no exceptions. David Lawrence and Todd Herman offer up a unique vision of these beloved characters outside the wilderness of our own imagination.

Charles is the Marrok’s, the leader of the North American Werewolves, enforcer. His job is to investigate and punish naughty werewolves that don’t follow the rules: Don’t bring attention to yourself and risk our discovery. After going to Chicago on assignment, he meets his mate, Anna. The pack she belonged to abused her thoroughly to make her more submissive, even though she is a rare Omega and therefore outside of the normal pack structure. While Charles and Anna’s werewolves claim one another at first glance, their human sides are left with the fallout of their unusual relationship. Charles brings her to his home to Montana in an effort to for them to learn more about one another. It is also a chance for Anna to see how a more stable pack works before the two of them make any more permanent decisions. Unfortunately, there is a situation that arises that requires Charles’ expertise and immediate attention, so their “honeymoon” must wait. Can Charles and Anna team up and overcome their personal issues as well as stop a rogue werewolf before it does anymore damage?

The characters really come to life in this graphic novel. Charles’ stoic nature and Anna’s fear definitely translate well through their facial expressions as well as their words. The only thing that seems to not come across for me is the awkwardness between the two about their relationship. To be honest, I am not sure how much better it could have been done in comic format. The gestures and mannerisms drawn do reflect the volatile nature of all the werewolves, both within town and in the woods.

Anna’s Omega nature is expressed in both words and coloring. As she begins to realize the extent of her inner strength, so does the reader. The most obvious scene that proves this point is when Anna first meets Leah, Female Alpha of the North American Werewolves. Leah cannot use her influence on Anna, since her Omega status makes her immune to it. Though the magic that Leah welds is hard to translate, it is drawn in such a way that makes it easier to understand, especially Anna’s resistance to it. I will freely admit to enjoying seeing Bran’s mate get smacked down; that never gets old.

I liked how the original novella is incorporated into Anna’s dreams, so that new readers to the series don’t get confused, while still following the original storyline of Cry Wolf. I would recommend this thrilling and emotionally charged graphic novel to fans and newbies alike. Take a chance and go to where the wild things are and you won’t regret it!

FTC Advisory: Penguin USA/Ace Books graciously provided me with a copy of Cry Wolf Vol. 1. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. The only payment I receive are hugs and kisses from my little boys. ( )

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf (Alpha and Omega Graphic Novel, Vol 1) is a collection of the first four Alpha and Omega comic adaptations of the CRY WOLF novel by Patrica Briggs. In addition to the stunning cover by Dan Dos Santos, there are four issue covers inside by Jenny Frison that are just gorgeous:

The majority of the art is by Todd Herman and it captures the action of Briggs’ story nicely and does a decent job of conveying conveys the numerous flashback moments. The characters themselves are also well drawn (although Anna pulls a few very odd and distracting faces).

I don’t think you can fully grasp the story if you haven’t read the novel since characterization and plotlines are necessarily condensed, but if you have read CRY WOLF, it is so much fun to see Anna and Charles and the rest of the wolves (Mercy even shows up). I’m twice as invested in the Alpha and Omega series now and will look forward to the next graphic novel volume as well as the next novel.
