This trade paperback covered the first four issues of the Fool Moon graphic novel Dresden Files story arc. The writing was well done, but the illustration wasnt as good as in previous installments.

In this installment Harry ends up investigating a series of murders that appear to be caused by werewolves. He is still on the outs with Murphy and cant seem to get a date with Susan that doesnt involve her pumping him for news stories. On top of everything else it looks like Johnny Marcone, Chicagos top gangster, might somehow be involved.

This was a well done installment in the graphic novel version of the Dresden Files. I think the story was good and that they did a decent job of converting it to a graphic novel. The humor is still there, as are the action scenes.

However the artwork in this installment is nearly as good as it was in Storm Front. Harry is depicted as freakishly tall in some scenes and Murphys face seems to be stuck in a permanent scowl. The scenes where Harry does magical attacks werent nearly as...well...magical as they were in the previous trade paperback.

This is decent, its just not as spectacular as the first couple trade paperbacks. If you are a fan of the series I think you will still enjoy it.

Overall a decent addition to the series, but the artwork was lacking a bit. Hopefully they will change to a new illustrator for the next installment in this series. Recommended to those who enjoy the Dresden Files and urban fantasy graphic novels.
