Coraline (graphic novel), by Neil Gaiman

coralineI’ve now read the original book, seen the movie, and read the GN version of Coraline. Of them all, I think the GN is actually my favorite. I thought the medium worked well for the story. My biggest quibble with the actual book was that the plot all seemed too simple, too easy for Coraline to overcome obstacles, but the GN format streamlined the story so that it seemed less like that. Instead, it felt more like a modern fairy tale, with triplicate tasks and a fitting climax. I really enjoyed it.
