I've read the first three Odd Thomas books and I loved them.
I'm not sure how I feel about this graphic novel. I can't decide if I just didn't enjoy it because it doesn't stack up for me on its own merit, or because I kept unintentionally comparing it to the real books.

While comparatively short relative to his normal books, they're hard to put down, and the length actually helped keep me invested in them. This second one was about as good as the first one, with a little more dynamite and a little less one-on-one fighting. It left me anxious to read the final one the next day.
Recommended for ODD fans like me! Not really a graphic novel fan. I remember them as comic books. Anyway I'm glad to have found it at the e-book library. Now I have to buy it for my Odd collection.

I loved the short story about Halloween. Oct 02, Amy rated it really liked it. All the flavor of Koontz's Odd Thomas novels, but in a shorter, fun graphic novel format.
Apr 30, Angela Lewis rated it liked it. Not really my thing. A graphic novel I am an Odd Thomas fan and did not realize I was checking out a graphic novel. That said a graphic novel on a kindle was a delightful change of pace. Mar 03, Tanya rated it liked it Shelves: Better than the last one. Mar 20, Joanne Myers rated it really liked it. Really enjoyed the story that Odd had to deal with in this graphic novel.
I expected more, it was okay. It was a comic book. Not what I expected for an Odd Thomas.
When I read Dean's books, I have my on visions of the players, and what I saw were not what I envision. This was a very easy-to-read graphic novel that I found enjoyable enough but would have preferred something darker, considering that Dean Koontz is a horror writer. In terms of plot, it was rather reminiscent of a Scooby Doo episode but with genuine supernatural elements to it.
I hadn't read anything by Koontz before, although I note that while he created the Odd Thomas character, Fred Van Lente is actually credited as the lead author of this co-written book. This may mean that the writing's sty This was a very easy-to-read graphic novel that I found enjoyable enough but would have preferred something darker, considering that Dean Koontz is a horror writer.
This may mean that the writing's style belongs more to Van lente than to Koontz. The artwork by Queenie Chan is good, although a couple of times I felt the main characters looked a little inhuman, though I'm sure this was unintentional.

I was also surprised to read in the first chapter of Koontz's Forever Odd , excerpted towards the end of the book, that Odd Thomas is 21 because the way Chan has drawn him suggests that he is aged This doesn't really matter as the age difference is not huge and it doesn't materially affect the story.
It was interesting to read in another appendix towards the rear - the 'Artist's sketchbook' - that Chan had originally assumed that one character was black while Koontz insisted that he was white and should be drawn accordingly. Unless the character's race is significant in another of the Odd Thomas books, I wonder if it really matters what race the character belongs to - and I suspect this is Chan's point of view as well.
Odd Thomas is asked to help. Odd has to battle overbearing ghost hunters, a Nedra who fawns over them and inclement weather that keeps everyone in the house for the night. The drawing style and the way the panels are arranged on the page convey this manga style. Having said that, Chan does avoid the more goofy, cartoony flair often found in manga. It was a fun read.
