Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel  - Original Story by Eoin Colfer

While the story is intriguing and well-written, for some the art can be rather painful to look at. Even though the original book is superior, however, the graphic novel version deserves a look.
Artemis Fowl is a child prodigy and a criminal mastermind. He also happens to have a dysfunctional family, a need for funds, and a firm belief in fairies. As it turns out, fairies are real and very technologically advanced. To acquire gold, Artemis kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the fairy police and holds her ransom. Yet, the fairies won't go down without a fight. Artemis knows this and is sure to stay one step ahead of his adversaries.
What will happen? And how different is the GN from the book anyway? And what happened to Mr. Butler's neck? The thought process of whomever designed these characters eludes me.
I recommend fans of the series take a peek at the adaptation, and non-fans to read the original first.
