I got a copy of this to review through NetGalley. This TP compiles issues 1-5 of the War Cry story arc of the Dresden Files Graphic Novel series. This is an original story and takes place during the war between the White Council and the Red Court.

The White Council and the Red Court are at war and as more and more Wardens fall Harry Dresden is called in to lead a strike group of Wardens. Harrys first mission is a tough one. He is supposed to take a group of rather green Wardens to a isolated town where the Red Court has targeted a bunch of civilians. Unfortunately the bunch of civilians being targeted have a pretty big secret of their own.

This was a very well done graphic novel. I loved the story; it is action packed and we get to see a lot of awesome fighting and magic on both sides of the conflict. I loved the secret that the civilians were hiding, it was amazing and very entertaining.

The story is mostly a stand-off between Dresdens Wardens and the Red Court. There are lots of shoot-outs and hand to hand combat. The graphic novel moves quickly, the story is easy to follow, and things never get boring.

The weakest part of this graphic novel is the illustration. Its not hard to follow, but sometimes the characters faces look awkward...especially when drawn from side angles. Its not awful but its definitely not up to the quality of earlier books in the series. I miss Ardian Syafs illustration.

Overall this was a great continuation of this series. I enjoyed the original story and loved all the action and some of the twists in the story. It was exciting to read and fast-paced. I thought the illustration was a bit weak and continue to miss Ardian Syafs illustration. I think fans of both the Dresden Files book series and the graphic novel series will enjoy this. Recommended to graphic novel fans who love urban fantasy.
