Publisher Comments:

A graphic novel based on the bestselling Harry Dresden books by Jim Butcher!

If circumstances surrounding a crime defy the ordinary and evidence points to a suspect who is anything but human, the men and women of the Chicago Police Department call in the one guy who can handle bizarre and often brutal phenomena. Harry Dresden is a wizard who knows firsthand that the everyday world is actually full of strange and magical things—most of which don't play well with humans.

Now the cops have turned to Dresden to investigate a horrifying double murder that was committed with black magic. Never one to turn down a paycheck, Dresden also takes on another case—to find a missing husband who has quite likely been dabbling in sorcery. As Dresden tries to solve the seemingly unrelated cases, he is confronted with all the Windy City can blow at him, from the mob to mages and all creatures in between.

Review:

"Beginning an unusually successful adaptation, this volume covers the first part of the book that introduced Harry Dresden, a modern wizard who's set up shop in downtown Chicago. Unlike Hellblazer'sJohn Constantine, Dresden is unambiguously heroic, cooperating with the police to solve gruesome magical murderers while also working solo as a supernatural PI. The two cases he undertakes here don't seem related, but they both send Dresden out into the mean streets and eldritch corners of the modern world. More to the point, they let Butcher (and adapter Powers) set up a rich, quirky universe for Dresden to explore, as when he interviews a spiteful vampire madam or fights a trench coat — clad demonic assassin. Powers and artist Sayaf do a very nice job of working a lot of text — conversations and Harry's reflections — into lively-looking pages. The action is well handled, too, especially when the climactic battle with the demon moves from inside Harry's apartment to outdoors during a thunderstorm. The Dresden novels are already New York Times bestsellers, and this comic looks like another winner. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

BettyR, January 29, 2010 (view all comments by BettyR)
The premise that the general public would know about a Wizard and not know or believe in the rest of the Supernatural is interesting.

But, the fun comes from getting to know the Dresden character. How he has to protect the very people who think he is most likely a nut case, from something they don't even believe in.
