Homecoming by Patricia Briggs

Title: Homecoming
Author: Patricia Briggs and David Lawrence.
Artists: Francis Tsai and Amelia Woo.
Series: Mercy Thompson graphic novel series #1
Genre: Sexy pentacle tattoo, graphic novel.
Setting: Seattle in a dark world.
Reason for Reading: I enjoy Ms. Briggs.
Pages: 112
Copyright Date: 2009
Cover: A woman with more tattoos and accessories than clothing walks among wolves whose eyes glow golden. A warehouse, a chainlink fence and a telephone pole stand behind her.
First panel: Image of a full moon over a desolate landscape. A small yellow text box reads, "Go for... a run... I thought."
Best part: I actually especially enjoyed the interview between Briggs and Lawrence. It gave new dimensions to my understanding of the book and also seeing how a fantasy story gets adapted into a graphic novel.
Worst part: I didn't love the Francis Tsai portrayal of Mercy. Very sexual and not very badass. It talked about this in the interview a bit which helped me to understand why the art looked different in certain chapters.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Home Sweet Home" by Motley Crue
Grade: C+
Recommended for: This would be a decent introduction to the series for those who haven't been sure they wanted to commit. Hardcore Briggs fans will already be reading it.
