Publisher Comments:

Mercy Thompson is a walker, a magical being with the power to transform into a coyote. She lives on the fine line dividing the everyday world from a darker dimension, observing the supernatural community while standing apart.

When Mercy travels to the Tri-Cities of Washington for a job interview, she quickly finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a gang war between rival packs of werewolves. And as if fangs and fur werent bad enough, Mercy must deal with the scariest creature of all: her mother, who is convinced that Mercy is making a mess of her life and determined to set her daughter on the right course.

The thrilling adventures of Mercy Thompson-Moon Called, Blood Bound, and Iron Kissed-have topped the New York Times bestseller list. Now Mercy makes her comics debut in an exclusive new story created by Patricia Briggs. Mercy Thompson: Homecoming is sure to please longtime fans and capture new ones with its mix of unforgettable characters and thrilling supernatural intrigue.

Sherry Carty, December 28, 2009 (view all comments by Sherry Carty)
Mercy Thompson: Homecoming by Patricia Briggs is a graphic novel about the urban-fantasy world of Mercy Thompson.

The artwork is excellent with two differing styles: One style is blocky, militant and more masculine in feel; it is frequently used for fight scenes. The fight scenes in particular will help emphasize the problems that Patricia Briggs has always been careful to cause for her shape-changers: the lack of clothing. The other style of artwork is smooth and flowing; it is more frequently used in portraits. Both styles are suitable for the story and the scenes that they depict.

The only complaint which I have is about the comic is that despite being a prequel, it does not work as a good introduction to Mercy Thompson at the $23 suggested retail price. Though there are plenty of reasons to review the artwork repetitively, the fact is, the story takes fifteen minutes to read and it doesn’t stand alone.

All in all, this graphic novel is a short story that is an excellent but pricey addition to the collection of those readers who are already enjoying the Mercy Thompson books by Patricia Briggs.

I'm not really a graphic novel or comics person but I really loved this. Its a Mercy prequil of sorts so there is new story line and the artwork is amazing!! I think the reason I liked it so much is that the "feel" of the books and the "feel" of the graphic novel is the same. They go together perfectly. If you like Mercy you'll LOVE this!
