Graphic Novel Makeover for Harry Potter

Artist Kazu Kibuishi created the new artwork for the 15 year (has it been that long?) re-release of the Harry Potter series. He designed seven new covers in his graphic novel style to tap into new generations of readers. I’m hooked even though I’m an “old-generation” fan.

Scholastic released the first new cover showing Harry’s first trip down Diagon Alley:

Jon Goes On…The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey Review

Jonathan Murphy's Hobbit Review
PROS 🙂
• A chance to spend time in Middle Earth once again
• Has more lighthearted fun than the last trilogy
• The actors all give fantastic performances
• All my favorite characters are here
• Lots of action scenes

CONS 😦
• It’s only a third of the story
• Three hours is too long for non fans
• Pacing drags in a few spots
• Story jumps around to different subplots
• Visually it looks too clean compared to the gritty LOTR

FINAL THOUGHTS…
While a bit overlong, it was so much fun revisiting the world of my all-time favorite movie series. I cannot wait for the story to continue next December with: “The Desolation of Smaug.”
